[Page Update Proposal]Map Editor Interface and Controls

Postby voludu2 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 8:19 pm

I would like to add the following to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Map_Editor_I ... d_Controls

Because these are all very useful (and some potentially dangerous) parts of the map editor interface and controls.
I just learned about the join roads icon today!

As I see it, the "interface guide" is the definitive guide, and should list all parts of the interface.
It could link out to the other guides, but should, at a minimum, list all these things.

I would like to add links to these things from this page.

Great! I have actually gotten through phase I of this, and am aware modest changes will be needed in some sections, and considerable changes in some subsections after the next update

Purpose: Update this article to comprehensively cover the WME interface, leaving out "best practice", "how to", and "tutorial" type information that is best covered elsewhere. I think this is a necessary step before reorganizing some of our tutorial information to make it easier to find and use (tutorial and reference information currently covered to various degrees in [ur=https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Waze_Map_Editor/Welcome]Welcome[/url]
quick start, waze map editor)

Summary: I took a copy of the current page and made some updates at
https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:Voludu2 ... eReference

* Added a little introductory information from Waze Map Editor
* Added how to start the editor in practice mode and logged in
* In Layout, describe the parts of the screen as top bar, tool bar, left pane, map display area, and bottom bar (proposed vs current)
* Included description of layers menu in tool bar, since that is where it is found.
* Use the term "Left Pane" instead of "Tabs Area" for the information pane on the left.
* Added Settings Tab to Left Pane with no object selected
* took scale, lat/lon, and permalink out of map display area, and added to the bottom bar
* Added Chat window to map display area
* The GPS direction color code recently added by Wonderlerm has not been added to this guide
* The section on Permalinks is condensed. This version is briefer than the current version. It does not describe permissions, because permissions are not limited to the permalink interface.
* Moving Around the map has been replaced with working with the map
* A section on working with objects has been added
* The information on permissions has been given its own subsection

Since we are in the habit of discussion in the forum here, we might as well.

* I didn't consider that dashboard and logout were part of the top bar, any more than the support links and etc. All in? just dashboard and logout? I dunno

Here's what I would like to do:
1) Find any way in which the proposed content is inferior to the current content (other than sheer length of page). Correct that.
2) Get the proposed content into the current page
3) Then continue discussions and improvements -- wordsmithing, breaking down pages, etc.

This just gives us some continuous-improvement momentum
There were many things I COULD HAVE DONE to the proposed page, but did not, for this reason.
---
So please try out your proposed change on the proposed page and we can have a quick look at it.

Then, everyone, please tell me if any of the changes I have listed above need to be axed or substantially rethought.

thanks.

Instead of infrastructure -- part of world?


Also, it occurred to me that other controls ought to include turn arrows, for completeness. I'm sure this page will need to be split eventually.

I have not had any objections, or significant contributions to the "work in progress" page.

I will begin doing two things

1) copying the information already discussed here into the live page.

2) discussing changes required by the change to the WME interface. I have been working on this at

* I made more clear the interface for multi-select.

* There is a discussion of the Permalink template that is included in this page, at https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=276&t=130071

This page now uses https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Template:Permalink/core to avoid repetition of some information within the same page. other pages use https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Template:Permalink

After observing a question in the WME topic, I added a section on joining segments, because the page previously did not describe this aspect of the interface.

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Map_Editor_I ... g_segments.
