JMRI works on Macs as well as Windows and Linux. The primary developer uses a Mac.

Getting one's head round the signalling, interlocking and turnout control takes a while. I think the best option is to set aside a lot of time following the tutorials "videos" which are available. Whilst they are for a US practise panel, it goes through the whole sequence of making a panel, linking to turnouts/signals, interlocking, etc..

Where some people seem to fall over is thinking that a quick track plan can be loaded and then automated. Yes there is a neat tool to import form XtrakCad, but that's only part of the process.

If the documentation is weak, then like any public domain project, those who think it could be improved can submit changes. They get incorporated. Just recently the entire DecoderPro component had its manual rewritten.
