XTrkCad Newbie question

Hi everybody,
First post and a newbie question.
I have registered my copy of the program and removed all the track libraries with the exception of Peco N Finescale.
I have drawn a straight piece of track and added a parallel track. I have then used two medium left hand switches back to back to switch from one track to the other. Problem is that the 6 foot way doesn't match up. If the parallel tracks have 6ft way between them then after the points it is wider.
I am used to track laying in MSTS using UKFS track where a short interconnecting straight is used to maintain the 6 foot.
Could anybody point me in the correct direction as I would dearly love to get beyond the planning stage asap.
Thanks in advance,

click on the parallel track icon the bottom of your page a seperation box will appear with a value change the value to what ever you want for your gauge. There are several similar functions like this but I'm sure you'll spot them in the future.
