That is very odd. I tried it myself, but I could not replicate it. It could be because the Road Data from Waze is incomplete.
Do you get any errors in the Error Console? (Ctrl+Shift+J)

Edit: Send the details via PM...


It was intermittent as I was updating city values, and now that I'm done with the town I was in, I can't reproduce it. I'll try to remember to check the error console if I run into it again.

EDIT: That's why I included a screen shot, not just a permalink, just to prove I'm not crazy! :)

Hi Timbones.
I would like to thank you for the work you've done.
The script that you developed is a fantastic tool!

Last month, some users have destroyed the Italian maps and your script helped us a lot

In addition, I would like to ask you a question inherent to a system that can provide greater protection for maps...

Do you think is possible to create a script that can do some sort of backup of a map?

What I mean is this: for example, in this permalink, the map has been completed
https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&l ... FFTFTTTTFT

If a vandal will make some changes to the map, with your script I can easily see where he made ​​changes.
The only way to repair the damage done, is to edit the map again: if the problem is related to a few dozen changes, you can easily fix it.
But if the changes are thousands, it is very difficult to solve the problem in a short time.

It would be great if there was a system that photographs the map and keeps a memory of the original...

You think it is technically possible?

Thanks
Lino

Hi,

I often see that new inexperienced map editors change segment levels where not necessary. I have heard different excuse like they have tried to change segment priority or access level.

To hunt down such segments from map is impossible without such a great tool as WME Color Highlights. To make it possible to highlight such segments which has level different than zero I added one more option to the list. You can find the patch here https://gist.github.com/3841752

I didn't want to add too much options right now and "not zero" is a good start. In the future it might be good to see segments with level -1 and +1 also in different color to easily see where are real problems like levels "9" and where are just correct multilevel interchanges.

Cheers and keep up the good work,

I seem to have run into an issue with the city highlighting. I select a city from the drop down, and not all the roads that are in that city get highlighted.

I added in an image of the drop down for city selection, and there are a couple of options (including the state, which is odd. I've not seen any roads in the area that have the state mistakenly entered into the city field, but I've not checked every road. The state has been in the drop down every time I've checked it across multiple areas of Kokomo). I can select either of the other 2 options, and no roads get highlighted at all. Also, note that the grey "No city" option is checked, and these roads are not marked as "no city".

This is located here, if you want to take a look yourself.

Also, note that the "Highlight a road type" function doesn't seem to be working, either. There is nothing populating the drop down box. However, when the check box is selected, I occasionally get a random segment or two highlighted in purple.

I got the notice today in FF that the script had automatically updated itself, so I went to Chrome, downloaded the update and dropped it on the extension page. The city highlight issue happens in Chrome v22.0.1229.79, but it doesn't seem to happen in FF 15.0.1. Some zooming in & out seems to refresh it in Chrome & it will display properly. The "Highlight a road type" doesn't seem to work in either Chrome or FF.

All in all, I'm very happy with this extension!!! Makes life much easier, thank you!

I believe there was already a conversation on that topic during the beta phase. Cannot find the thread at the moment.

Hi Tim, would an additional checkbox to disable or enable the turn-highlighting functionality be something that is easily doable? In most cases they are extremely helpful, but there are times when one would want to turn off highlighting.
