Hi Vespucci, thanks for the news!
Only thing I've found is that it's impossible to delete an Entry/Exit Point, both in prod and beta (scriptless).

PS: This was already happening in beta (since last month, I think)

Yes, and it's already been reported as a bug in beta.

It would also be good to have the option to edit the address of the places before approving them, since in some cases they do not have an address, nor the country.

before this update, I could click on the place that I would approve, and it allowed me to edit the same place that was just approved, now I have to approve it and then click on the place, to be able to edit it.

These are minimal details, but they optimize the revisions I make in places, thanks!

Maybe someone who has access to the WME beta forum can share this detail, thanks!

It's never, ever been possible to edit a recently approved, but not saved place. Any newly created place has always needed to be approved and saved before you can edit.

the missing 'trashcan' on the point button seems to be 'fixable'
I have no idea how to fix it, but this seems to be the 'location'
//*[@id="landmark-edit-general"]/form/div[4]/div/div/div/div/div/div/div[1]/div[3]/div[3]
of the code that says
<div class="delete-button waze-icon-trash" style="display: none;"></div>

When I edit that line to read something like this:
<div class="delete-button waze-icon-trash" style=""></div>

Then I can see the trash can and use it.

however after I save, the line gets modified back to the original contents, so this should be fixed! Please!!

Hope I gathered the right information to help you find the code.

We are also having a problem with some PURs that I think has been reported elsewhere.
for example: https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor?env=u ... 56.1282416

Clicking on the 'ballon' for this place or clicking on 'THIS PLACE HAS PENDING UPDATES. CLICK HERE TO SEE THEM.' will 'freeze' WME (and WME beta), even with NO SCRIPTS running.

By 'freeze', I mean that the PUR is not editable, and nothing on the screen can be clicked upon to unselect or select anything. A reload of the WME is necessary in order to do any more editing.

This makes some PURs 'UN-editable'. Please fix!!!!

Although these problems are documented elsewhere, I thought it worthwhile to document here because not everyone reads where it is documented and even non beta WME is effected.

Without scripts, cant open some PUR requests. The ones with the up arrow in the icon.
