Hi, My first post. I am using iTrain software on a simple 12'x1' layout with 10 IP Digital points. I started my layout from scratch in January this year and had it all working fine. I got permission from her indoors to extend my layout by a further 6'. 
I am in the process of doing that now and want to reposition and therefore readdress  my IP digital points. I cannot re-address them the same way as I addressed them first time.
Its not something I have seen addressed (Pun) anywhere when I google it.

Perhaps I am missing something obvious, but I thought someone must have re-used an IP Before and re-assigned an address. I am hoping someone will have a chuckle at my sillyness and put me right.😁
Kind regards
GandT

Your Itrain software wont interfere with changing an Ip digital address i am assuming you are using your actual command station to change the address numbers? And not trying to do it through Itrain somehow. the instructions are quite simple and are on the link below put the switch to set use your command station to activate desired point number press a couple of times return switch to run basically. Then test its working on the selected point address. If that works fine you then have to use switchboard or accessory editor in Itrain to reassign to the correct new point address.

Hi Brian.
Thanks for taking the time to reply. I forgot to add that I using a Digikeijs DR5000 as my command station and not a hand throttle. I was told by the guy who sold it to me in January that my (then) 6' layout could be controlled from the Dr5000 and iTrain. As I said it did work fine, its only when I extended to 12' and reused my points. 
They are reacting on iTrain as if the were on there old position (address). So my problem is trying to change the old address from 2 to a new address of 5, for example.
From your reply, I assume that I should use the DR5000 to address the points, is that correct.
Sorry if this sounds dumb, but I am an old retiree only 5 months into the hobby and enjoying the learning curve😷
Thank again
George

What system did you use to address them before?

TBH - it doesn't really matter, as the re-addressing is essentially the same procedure as assigning an address on a new motor.

Set up all your diagrams.screens with iTrain and assigned addresses to the points

Place your system in normal control mode.
The Digital IP motors are connected to the main DCC bus.

Flick the switch on the motor to SET (away from the bidy of the motor)
Operate the point on the iTrain screen that you want the motor to work with.
The iTrain screen will change, but the motor will not move.
Do this a couple of times.
This will simply overwrite the old address in the Digital IP
Flick the switch back to RUN.
And that should be it.

Hi Mike
All sorted now, I listened to what you were saying and thank you for your help.
I went through the instructions again, and guess what, the bit I missed this time round, was to switch the power "Off and On"😬 I did that and all was fine.
Very embarrassing, but hey ho, guess I am not the first to forget that old IT trick.😂

On a separate issue, am I OK to mix IP digital Point motors with Gauge Master PM10D point motors? I cannot see a reason not to, but again my research does not find a definitive answer.
Thank you once again.
Stay safe.
George

Not a problem in mixing them.
Digital IP and GM 10D are accessory devices.
(You could even give them the same address if they were on a crossover!)
