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

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.

That is part of it, sure, but I didn't want to get into a soft turn restriction discussion. It will disable all turns, then enable all turns, soft or otherwise. :)

It is because York Rd is locked. Send Jondrush a personal message here on the forums. Or post an unlock request by following the instructions in the initial posts here: viewforum.php?f=265

Fellows, I am having exactly the same problem with this:

https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&l ... =188872066

I need to setup the allowed turns for this tiny segment, but some of the other roads are locked by a level 4 editor :(

Can you help me?

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.

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.

Can't edit turns

Alan, as I said in an earlier post, you have to manually set any restricted turns after QWing the junction. You still should QW, even before setting a restriction to be sure to kill any soft restrictions.
