Can't edit turns

Postby ToddMcCann » Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:28 pm

I see where the turn permissions need to be changed from red to green, but I'm not allowed to do it. The red arrow highlights, but I can't change it to green. I've had this same issue many times. How do I get it unlocked so I can fix the problem?

Does it take a while to take effect? I still can't make edits to the turns. The arrows highlight, but my cursor doesn't change into a hand.

DAMNIT. It's because one of the connecting roads was edited by a level 4 editor.

Sorry...try it now. You can't edit turn restrictions unless all segments attached to the junction are unlocked. Be sure to check that next time and include all the locked segments in your permalink.

Also, the proper way to Allow All Turns is to click on the junction and then type QW. This manually restricts all turns and then allows them all. If you don't do it this way, you can leave soft-restrictions, which are set by people driving through the intersection, and aren't 100% reliable.

Any time you edit a junction do the QW trick and then manually restrict any disallowed turns by changing the arrows.

QW also removes reverse connectivity which was explicitly set by overuse of 'w' in the previous editor release which enabled those reverse connections.

I notice the QW trick toggles "Allow Connections" and "Disallow All Connections." To be clear, before I save I want it to read "Disallow All Connections," correct?

Correct. Q disallows and W allows. You don't want to ever hit W without hitting Q first. Once you get used to that, you can ignore the "Allow All Connects", etc. in the upper left hand corner.

I think I confused myself on this whole "allow" "disallow" thing. Just below the word "Properties," should it say "All connections enabled?" Or "All connections disabled?" I am NOT talking about the underlined words. Sorry for the confusion. Just want to get it right.

It really depends on the intersection. There are plenty of junction which may have a turn which is disallowed and must be manually restricted. In that case the "all turns dis/enabled" won't appear at all. For example, this segment is a ramp and you don't want to enable a left turn off the ramp across the center divider to go the other way. If you select the junction, you'll notice you can either disable or enable all turns, and that "all turns dis/enabled" doesn't appear because neither is true. If you were to Enable all turns at this junction, you'd end up with Waze giving incorrect, illegal and dangerous turn instructions from this ramp.

So, depending on the exact junction and the nature of allowed turns, you need to make sure it is all set properly, so just ignore the "all turns dis/enabled" and set the turns properly.

The use of QW is only advised 1) on junctions where all turns from any segment to another is allowed and 2) as a shortcut: getting all turns enabled then disabling the one illegal turn is faster than manually setting turn restrictions on each segment individually.
