WME v1.9 Release - Official Feedback Thread

Postby ohad-ron » Sun Feb 22, 2015 2:08 pm

Hey, a new editor version is here.

Changes:
  • Closures - real-time closures are now editable from the editor!
    • This feature is visible to everyone, but closures are only available to level 5 users and up. We can configure this on a per-country basis.
    • Known issue - client-created closures are shown with '1970' as their end date.
    • Known issue - we currently do not display the creator / updater of a closure.
    • Known issue - rare issue we are working on resolving but could still happen - sometimes, changes to a closure require a few seconds wait and a refresh to be reflected correctly.
  • A new roads image layer - A completely renovated, much better looking, new roads layer. You can try it by enabling the 'experimental roads' layer. Many things are much clearer, in addition to added functionality such as displaying scheduled restrictions and toll roads. (Not available in IL).
  • New toolbar button for adding point places - (known issue - it is now significantly more difficult to create areas. We are working on an improvement for this in the next version)
  • New Zoom handle design
  • We now show a clearer error when a duplicate place is created
  • We now show and image carousel in new place update requests which contain several pictures by the same user
  • We now automatically turn-on layers that are specified in the permalink
  • Fixed an issue where the zoom bar might have been hidden by the user drive panel
  • Added location button to place update panels
  • We now display managed areas in the areas tab
  • Improved translations for duration strings
  • Improved colors for UR/MP additional info lines. Designed to work with the new roads layer.
  • Place update markers are now colored according to how recent they are.
  • The MP/UR edit panel is now scrollable for smaller screens.
  • Update request conversation are now clearer - better separation between editors and reporters
  • Fixed an issue where house number editor toolbar wraps in some languages
  • Fixed - Ignore restrictions defined in non-drivable directions
  • Fixed - Wrong date in place image dialog when language isn't English
  • Fixed - Chat rank cones are misaligned when language is RTL
  • Fixed - Live users layer name is now translateable
  • Fixed - Alternate street editing is not possible if the segment has no primary street
  • Fixed - Update request edit panel title isn't translatable
  • Fixed - Chat does not always show up after login

As always, please let us know if you have any feedback. More great editor things are on the way ;)

Happy editing and a great week! :) :) :)

It sounds good. But how to create area. More difficult means it is not possible or what?


Edit: The old way of creating areas was perfect. Now it is #@!!@&#

Create a point. Cover to area. Move geometry handles to change shape.

Bug: When creating a new place, every option in the drop down menu creates the place as a Natural Feature.
It doesn't automatically select the option which was chosen.

While this works it is an absolute hack to create an area for something large and irregularly shaped - a lake for example.

They know that and are working on it.

To this red-green colour-blind map editors eyes, whilst the main line colours are more vibrant, the contrast between the line itself and the direction markers is reduced - particularly on the blue "Waze provided route" line - making it harder to see what the lines actually represent...

The new Place control (if it were working and selecting anything other than Natural Feature) still only solves half a problem, because it only selects top level categories. I assume the objective was to get more accuracy on the place categories, but if you really want to solve that problem this way, you'll need to have a 2-level fly-out menu to pick the subcategory. This should also then fix the area/point issue because most countries have standards for area/point based on subcategory.

Also, is there any way we can reduce the amount of space the two blue menu bars take up on the screen? Less "Window", more "Map Editor" ... please???

And final feedback point for me -- the new zoom control looks cheezier than the old one.
