It appears that the "duplicate segments created on long road creation" issue (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16200) has been resolved. Could someone else confirm?

It says they are "adding" it, not that it has been added. It appeared in a previous beta many months ago as a layer called "Other users" which was documented for many months in the wiki. At that time, all we could do was see other editors on the map as the "hardhat Wazer" icon. You could see their zoom level as a grayed circle, and when they were actively editing/saving, their icon would shade red. There was no ability to chat or interact or even know who it was.

Since then, they have continued to develop this feature, but have not yet deployed it for beta testing. It's considered to be in "alpha" testing IMO.

(Edit : I did not want to write this post in this section, I wanted top put it on the 3.5 feedback section. Sorry for the mistake.)

I would like to report a problem which was already present with the last version.
Sometimes we have a "turn left" or "turn right" instruction, when there is no other way to go... (minimal mode)
If there is other way, they are forbiden.

Example :
https://world.waze.com/editor/?lon=1.33 ... s=62075349
GPS says 'turn left' when you go to point A to B. No instruction will be better.
This example does not happened before 3.5.

With some Y roads, there is also the problem, example before or after a roundabout. The logical is to go straight. A 150° turn is not possible... (and turn is already forbidden on the map)

Other example, but I have tried to edit the road to don't have the instruction (and waiting an update to see the results)
https://world.waze.com/editor/?lon=1.34 ... 6,62080099
B to A : we have currently a 'turn right' instruction, which has no meaning in this case. The complete instruction is : stay left, then turn right.

(I have instructions in french, so I translate into what I think it is in english)

Please fix this. Either make it "?"-only or "Shift+h" for example for "help".

2nd: This function is not mentioned in the wiki.

Which function isn't mentioned in the wiki? German keyboard layout activator for the help window?

*lol*

In Austria they use shift+#

Thanks Alan, I was doing a search for "insert junction", that's why I didn't find that paragraph. :)

It's in the documentation: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... _a_segment.

Cartouche had a "add junction" function. You had to click the function, then click the location you wanted it. Then wait for 20s for it to split the segments, save and refresh. WME is faster. I often drag an existing segment over to do the split, drag it back.

Not meaning the sync problem ;)

The not saved edits are gone....Waze stated this was fixed, so after an automatic logout you're should be able to login again, without lose your unsaved edits.....It worked...but now it doesn't ...

That's what I've been doing as well ... didn't Cartouche used to have a shortcut though? Just curious if they brought it back. :)

"yes". "i", draw a new segment ending at the point you want to split the other one, then delete the new segment ;)
