Thanks for testing this.

When I tried that test 9 months ago, I could change properties for shorter segments that extended outside my editing area, but not for longer ones.

How long was the segment you tested?
Can you repeat the tests I describe in the original post of this topic?
Can you add the HN test, which it didn't occur to me to try?

Thanks!

kartografer -- A pennsylvania editor just confirmed your findings on a RR segment 7.1 km long.
Except for the HNs, of course.

Name, elevation, lock level, geometry points.

Do we need to chase this up to longer lengths before making the change kartografer suggested?

Thank you, kartografer and RussPA for testing this change in behavior.

I propose this replacement text. If there are no objections. I will ask the global wiki moderators to approve it.

I agree.

Now there are two major changes:
1) WME does not allow saving a segment longer than about 100km (99980.0 m, to the nearest 10th of a meter, as measured in toolbox)
2) It is possible to edit properties of segments which extend far outside of one's editable area, so one of the reasons for avoiding long (> 10km) segments no longer applies.

_____________________________________
The maximum length segment I could save was 99980.0 m, using the toolbox measuring tool.
Attempting to save a segment 99980.1 m produced the error "The highlighted segment is too long"

Well I think it has sat long enough for any interested parties to raise objections.
The next step, since this is a global page, is to bring this to the attention of the global moderators, who will make sure that we have followed the proper procedure.

My request is here:

As far as I could tell, the moderators did not object to the proposed text. Therefore, I have made the change.
