Recently I found it useful to place markers or static items for items like mileposts and signals using the Auto Placement function. However, I immediately ran into the issue of it being limited to a maximum of 999 m (only a 3 digit number being possible to be typed). Prototypically ABS signals are placed every mile on my route, likewise for mileposts.

Any reason for limiting it this way Goku?

Also (and i suppose dangerously), I realized it is possible to place interactives with the Auto Placement function. However the offset entries do not function limiting its usefulness (or danger, left to be experimented by the bold!)
