I developed a script for editing help with the map editor.
Latest version of the script: 1.6.5

Presentation:
This script adds tools to ease editing cards.
Editing tool: editing the properties of a set of segments. WME does not change the city name on a set of segment without changing also the street names.
Selection tools: selecting an area, the following selection criteria.
Tool overcomes the shortcomings of Waze Map Editor (WME for short): Clean round about.
Editing tools en masse: "Allow all drives", "Suppress unneeded junctions".
Various tools: full screen, adjust the distance snap (magnetic effect when moving from one point).
WME server load information of the visible region to a granularity of zoom dependent.
This script uses this information in memory, it does not change the behavior of papyrus and does not interact with the server. Editing tools simply use mechanisms editions WME.

Installation:
Firefox
with greasemonkey plugin:
https://waze-papyrus-extended-tools.goo ... ze.user.js
It is possible that during installation, this script is deactivated, it must therefore be activated in the menu of greasemonkey.
Since version 1.6.1, an update automatic script was introduced. If your current version is less than 1.6.1, please uninstall to reinstall latest version. Otherwise wait for the automatic update is done (for the can force update in menus greasemonkey).

In Chrome
with the extension: https://waze-papyrus-extended-tools.goo ... -tools.crx
Add permission for the installation script for windows with:

Warning: Some bugs are known Chrome
Chrome includes a mechanism for automatically updating scripts.
Documentation:
You're read ...
There is no official wiki script, I must do it. One day maybe ...

Main features:
"Segment list" Selecting a set of segments following criteria.
"Select in landmark": Multi-segment selection area by using landmarks.
"Edit properties" Edit group attributes selected streets (retaining the attributes that you do not want to change unlike the Attribute Editor papyrus)
"Clean round about": Allows you to learn the attributes of the segments of a roundabout so that it is not red and so it is a suitable type of road.
"Open in>" Quick jump on the live map and honor cartouche_old.
"Snap dist": Setting the snap distance (Effect of a magnetic Lord displacement of a point)
"Allow all drives" Change all segments are not locked into two-way and allows all change direction. Use with caution!
"Suppress unneeded junctions": Removes unnecessary seams visible on the screen.
Difference with the removal of a node:
- Do not take into account the direction of the segments (except Locke)
- REFLECTS channel type (a street followed by a 4x4 road should not be join!)
"Full screen" setting in full screen
I have lots of other ideas that I would develop features may ...

In case of problems:
If you use Chrome, take a handkerchief or go to FireFox.

Miscellaneous:
This script editing area enlarged in height. If this change is a problem, you can comment out the line containing:
CODE: SELECT ALL
"# Editor-container {max-width: none! Important;} # WazeMap {max-height: none! Important, height: 82%! Important;}"

In version 1.6.4: line 1865.

All in all, a decent translation of what this script can do. A few minor tweaks for more familiar/casual language:
  • HMI popup windows (admittedly a bit messy)
  • List of segments:
    Columns can be selected. The list aggregates based on visible columns.
  • Batch editing of properties:
    For example, allows the city name to be changed for segments of an entire street without losing the street names.
    Interprets the street name "D17 - Av de Paris" in two fields: street id and street name. Thus it is possible to redefine the street id or street name independently. You can name a new D17 from a street already named.
    The id Street must meet the regex / [^] * [0-9] [^] * / (in French: something with a number without any spaces anywhere) [research "regular expressions" elsewhere]
  • Select an area: Create a new landmark and then "Select in landmark." (Be sure to delete this temporary landmark before saving!)

I think the versioning took different branches when "we" (the anglophones) jumped on board.

Looks like the new code is in a different place than the original and is back to being called simply "waze" with the different version. I can update the wiki with the additional link and new information but perhaps timbones et al can coordinate with Alcolo47 and Slicer?

Also, I don't think either of them are super comfortable writing in English so I am happy to help with any translation
[edit] OOOPS! Hello Slicer!
:-D

there is a new version (1.2.3), with plain road type, not only numbers, and some new features, but can't tell them all :)

Is there still a 'anglophone' branche of the script ?

[edit because of the jen's edit] : do am I writing such a bad english ? (of course, I'm joking :) )

Is there some modification that needs to be made to work on the NA server? I'm wondering about that Street ID part. I also know there are some differences in the World Papyrus and the NA Papyrus.

I've not seen any issues, but have also not yet played around with the street naming/ID part of it.

I think the street name/id thing is just a style format they have chosen to use to handle numbered routes that have names. Like near me we have US Hwy 11 which is Kingston Pike. Right now we in the US make a choice as to which name is more important. Over there they are using both as if I used something like "US-11 - Kingston Pike" as the name.

Again, that is my understanding so I may be way off.
