Just caught up with the post. Yes I created that section from scratch in August. Yes I was unaware of the "Del" option at the time I wrote that section. I might have been creating that section during one of my late night zombie states because I see some typos in my original work (already fixed by Jondrush).
The section uses the Junction term because this is a section on Junctions. I have put in Removing junctions with only two segments
. If we don't like that we can adjust further.
Jondrush, after you complete your edits of the http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Crea ... t_segments
page can you reply here? Then we can review and all confirm this is what we all believe.
Then we should make the same changes to http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... a_Junction
as CBenson proposed.
On the topic of the Bridge icon changing the level. I have never really run into that as a problem. It is a function in the editor and the icon will appear in front of editors. We should either explain how to use it or tell editors what it does and why they should not use it.
On the topic of Drag Together it is an operation that exists. Like the Bridge icon we should either explain how to use it properly and provide the drawbacks, or tell them never to do it and explain clearly why not. Frankly there are times when the segment is so short it is not possible to pick the two segments on either side and it is easier to pick the junction and slide it. To check for any geometry node, simply pull the mouse a farther distance away to see if the segment pivots in the middle or at the far junction to know if there is a node. You can also recommend the user immediately save after the drag option to immediately verify there is no geo node in there.
CBenson properly decoded the comment on using the d key to remove the unwanted node. Again it may have been one of my zombie modes that created that text one night.
As for the pop-up window in the Wiki, I think that question was raised months ago, maybe even my Jasonh300, and I think I investigated but have never seen this before and I don't think I found anything on it. Either way I think I have a solution described next.
We have the page called glossary
that covers all the definitions for nodes and the like that is covered in these sections. Typically a Wiki would hyperlink the first use of any questionable term back into the glossary. The current problem is that we do not have the ability to link to "anchors" on a page and can only link to section headings. If we link a term to the glossary page it goes to the top of the page and I personally think it confuses readers. Although I guess we could easily put text at the top of the page that tells the reader to scroll alphabetically to the entry being referenced. Otherwise we would need to make each entry a separate heading. Now that I think about it we could easily make them low enough section headings to appear like normal or maybe just bolded text followed by the descriptions. Then we could link directly to each entry. Let me give that a test try. Then we can just hyperlink the first use of terms on a page to the immediate glossary entry to solve the problem. I will reply with a test page when I complete it.
