Quick question on keyboard shortcuts: is there a way to insert a junction on an existing segment? The shortcut help screen doesn't seem to think so.

They are probably not gone (I hope). Here it's just slow (again) updating the tiles. Need to zoom in/out a lot to get them up to date. And be very careful to not get into the ghost segments war again. Or just stop editing and go for a coffee ;)

Well. German keyboard layout would also require a double-shift.
Please fix this. Either make it "?"-only or "Shift+h" for example for "help".

Did you try it, the ?? For me the ? is already shifted, so shift-? sounds a little stupid, but it works when I type a ? (shift needed). I use the American keyboard where the ? is the shifted / key. Working with Chrome on windows.


You are right - I just wanted to show the dilemma. I use Firefox on Windows.

2nd: This function is not mentioned in the wiki.

Which function isn't mentioned in the wiki? German keyboard layout activator for the help window?


I searched the Questionmark full text in http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... d_Controls which was not successful.

EDIT: Found it in http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Waze ... _Shortcuts!
Doesn't work in FF16 on Windows.

On firefox and chrome, I can no longer scroll the whole web page. I used to have a scroll bar on the right side.. This makes the map area horrible. Whats the trick to enlarge the map area? . The top header on the page seems like its to large... Can you guys set the map window to scroll on the server side?

Help...

As I said, shift-? on european keyboards, even if ? is already shifted, works on Safari Mac and, tested now, on Opera Mac, but *does not* work on Firefox Mac. No idea on Windows, and my colleagues are busy to test on Linux.

Yeah, my Mac keyboard is German, but my layout is portuguese (8 years in Germany), I just don't look at the keyboard keys. But funny thing is that the shift-? does work on Safari, just not on Firefox.
