Weird. I just tried it for the first time and since I couldn't find a separated segment, I selected one without the line and changed it to "true", saved it, and the line appeared. Then I got ready to come back here to gloat, but decided to change it back first. Couldn't. Had to go to cartouche_old. :?

1.2.8 was uploaded this morning. There's one new addition best not discussed in the forum.

I agree, but evidently some higher-up didn't and asked that we no longer publicize another shortcut that did the same thing.

How does "clean round about" work? I want to edit a roundabout that won't save because it "does not form a circle". Is that what this tool is for?

Yesterday I removed Extended Tools from both FF and Chrome and tried to install the latest 1.3.1 version.
It seems to install ok in both browsers, however it does not show up in the left panel of the WME editor (is that redundant?) in either browser.

I've closed and reopened the browsers, cleared the caches, and forced a F5 refresh, and made sure the extension was Enabled.

Any other ideas? Am I missing something obvious?

*.waze.com/editor does not work.
*.waze.com/map-editor does.

Thanks to the developers!
Á.

OK, this must have to do with the "Allow All Drives" feature. What does it do? When I click on it, it seems to select many random segments, and it's not clear what it does with them.

I couldn't get the segment list to come up when I tried it in Chrome. It did select some one-way segments, but not all.

But now I'm looking at 1.5.2 and see the new "accelerate edition" option. Cute. :roll:

OK, tried it in FF. It seems that it's designed to remove all turn restrictions from the viewing area. This is not a good idea at all!

If you edit a region alredy edited, don't use.

Choose your tools according to your needs.

No, I realize that. I understand exactly what it's designed for. And I can think of a few situations where it would be very useful for me. I'm only thinking about how BAD this could be in the hands of someone who doesn't know what he's doing, or (worse) doesn't care and is only looking for points.

The power to turn every unlocked street into a 2-way and eliminate all turn restrictions in the current view is too dangerous. Do you know how much time it takes to find out which streets are one way in a city? If someone using this tool just decides to change all of them to two-way, it takes a few seconds. Then when I go back in and fix them, and reset the turns at every intersection along the one-ways, it will take hours.

Please disable this feature! Or find a way to limit the users who have access to it!
