How to use trip builder guide?

I am a new user of the site and have been trying to work out how to use trip builder on Windows to create a UK trip from Reading to Llandudno.
I have double-clicked the start and end points and a motorway route is suggested which is not what I want. I have tried to drag the route towards BBR routes but it won't drag and double-clicking elsewhere just creates more waypoints. I'm guessing that's not the way you're supposed to use it?
Are you supposed to double-click points from the start gradually towards your destination via the BBR routes where they exist - is that the way it's been designed to be used?
Also, what do the different route colours mean, if anything - is red "better" than blue or vice versa or is it road type or something else? I haven't come across any kind of map legend.
Some more detailed trip builder instructions would be very useful!
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi David
Thanks for the response. I had watched that video, but watched it again anyway and now I know the little details that I'm looking for it does answer most of my questions!

The linked video is a promo for the Trip Builder, not a tutorial on how to use it :-(
There was another video that at least sort of showed how to use it, but I can't find that video again. Also :-(
