FEATURE REQUEST- KEYBOARD SHORTCUT FOR GEOMETRY RESET

Include keyboard shortcut to reset road segment geometry to just start and end points. This will allow for the easy reduction of road geometry where it isn't necessary, easier tuning of junction location, easier geometry fitting where it is incorrect and a more professional presentation in the clients.

Background: A significant number of roads suffer from an excess of geometry points. This makes adjusting segments painful and leads to what I call 'road wiggle' in the client, either within segments as the spliner tries to fit the points or on incorrectly aligned roads (segment to segment) that are painful to adjust due to the excess geometry. This is particularly noticeable on straight road segments that should have no geometry points at all but have many and they are not aligned. I've fixed straight road segments the have had 20+ geometry points on a segment that was less than 0.5 miles long.

Other cases are curved roads that can easily be represented by 2-3 geometry points but may have 10-20 spaced every few feet.

This is not something I see often at all, and I've got 3400 URs on the dashboard. Please post some links.

Very unreliable and not helpful when I have 3 or 4 cites on the map at one time. Gotta remember us East coasters, every family farm was a new town . . . :P

The current city displays in the black bar across the top of the editor window if you're over a designated city on the map screen.

True. We've also been talking a lot about misdated URs in the past.
ATM the URs are such anonymized and delayed, that often not even their author remembers, whether all is correct there... :D

Another issue that doesn't seem to be addressed is that the reported on date of URs is unreliable. I've noticed this again recently as the strong storm came through the area on June 29. After that there were a bunch of URs indicating road closures. Were I wasn't sure whether the road closure was long term or temporary, I would let the UR sit and hope someone who had driven the road would address the UR. If no one did after a week or so I would go back and try to determine the status of the road. When I would pull up the UR again (even if it was orange or red) sometimes the reported on date would be "Today."
