Thank you, thank you!!! I finally got it. Still not sure how to be honest but I see the menu now and that's what matters.

:D

I want to raise a subject that the 'suppress unnecessary junctions' first brought to my attention but I think it is NOT a problem the extended tools, but with WME itself.

Sometimes after suppressing, I could not save. I would track it back to a 'necessary junction' that had been removed, leaving segments touching without a junction.

I found by undoing the suppress, that the junction in question could be deleted manually also.
A 'good necessary junction' will NOT delete, but one of these 'half junctions' (I don't know what else to call them) will delete.

The only FIX I have found is to 'cut the ends off' of all the segments that meet at that junction, and rejoin them.

I usually create a couple of new segments, diagonally joining the segments that have the bad junction, and then delete the new segments and the cut off ends of the old ones and then rejoin them. The new junction created by this process is then a 'good junction'.

I just did it slightly quicker by using one of the 'bad segments' to cut the ends off of the other, and then vice versa. A couple less operations. I will have to see if it works next time I try it. :)

Anyone have any other magic way to do it?

I wonder if there is a way to detect these bad junctions and replace them automatically with the script?

OK...finally got it into FF Greasemonkey :D Everything seems to work randomly ( New editor is extremely buggy) except allow all drives. I am level 4 and wondering if this is also a bug or just not working period?

The old editor was working fine...don't know why WAZE would release this newer version being as quirky as it is... :?:

The only thing currently buggy about the editor right now is the landmarks layer and its effects on other functions. At least, that I know of off the top of my head.

Ahh...thanks Allen. I did have landmark layer enabled. When I go back on tomorrow I'll disable it and see what difference it makes.

If you currently have Extended Tools installed, it can make the editor seem to be buggy. But it's because of an incompatibility between ET and the new editor.

Is it time to just retire the Extended Tools once and for all? We've all seen the damage they can do to the map in the wrong hands & since they no longer work properly I think this would be the best time to retire them.

Several of their functions have been replicated & built on by other tools, for example, the Highlighter Tools offer much more information & functionality than the Segment List ever did.

The segment list is great for selecting a bunch of roads with a similar property, the highlighter tool doesn't replace that. Its a great way to fix streets missing the city, or correcting a mispelling.

The Segment Tool is MANDATORY for the Portola Valley problem in California. I cannot fix problem areas without that tool (and stay married due to time required otherwise...). :o
