The instructions on correcting errors displayed by the highlighter script says only to hit the "Q" to begin the reset process. Is the "W" necessary, too?


Where did you see these instructions? There's a script in beta testing that uses Q differently than the native function of Q in the editor.

Hover over the error text which WMECH puts on the screen.

Someone resolved the user complaints without fixing the revcon nodes :(

Can I get a level 5 to please take this section of I-70 and clean those up (hopefully before I get more user complaints) ;)

However I am still finding segments that have skewed speeds.
Not a bug. It's a side effect of saved Objects in WME that's automatically cleared whenever Object data is reloaded (pan/zoom/permalink/F5/JNF's save hook).

So, I click the Q key as the hover-over instructions say, the arrows turn red and I go around clicking them individually on all sides (in most cases, I'm correcting intersections allowing four-way turns).

Even when I have to pull apart the segments to purge the error (always, in the case of the U-turn errors), the arrows when reassembled default to red, and I set them individually. I'm not understanding where the W-key step is needed. :?:

The W key will enable all turns (turning the arrows green). For intersections where all turns are allowed, this is much easier than clicking on 8 (or more) arrows. Even for intersections where most of the turns are allowed, it's much easier to allow all turns and then disable the few that aren't needed.

I *believe* they are created by things that you could do in cartouche but can no longer do in WME. So, while they are out there on existing roads, newly created roads should not have them.

Gotcha. Might have known I was taking the long way to accomplish the same thing! :roll:

And Blaze, hope that's right about most problems being a relic of Cartouche.

RevCon is easy to create in WME by starting with a 2 way segment, using allow-all-turns and then setting it to one way. SelfCon however seems to have been cased by automatic turn opening, from people actually doing u-turns, or GPS wobble that makes them look like they've turned around (anywhere on the segment), which is why it's important to clear the soft-turns as well.

SelfCon has not resurfaced on any segment where it's been cleared from and the soft-turns eliminated as well.

Good to know the time I've spent clearing soft turns hasn't been wasted! :D
