I am increasingly frustrated with the default Route Editor and would love to use TSRE5 more. However, I find the movement with the arrow keys is very jerky and imprecise and as a result I cannot use the editor as I would like. Is there any way of smoothing out the movement to make it easier to focus on particular points in the route?

You can use CTRL to slow down the movement for more precise control.

In TSRE5, you can also enter the X/Y/Z position of any object to place it in a specific location.

The movement speed can be set in the settings.txt.
For me...
cameraSpeedMin = 3
cameraSpeedStd = 0.3
cameraSpeedMax = 30


TSRE5 Camera Control Settings

It also helps to slow the mouse movement down.
Here's mine.

mouseSpeed = 0.1
cameraspeedMax = 20
cameraSpeedMin = 2
cameraSpeedStd = .2
