This is an instance of database vs. common use conflict. To us, it seems a commonality, but to Waze it is not. This is where the database street object as contrasted against the segment object comes into play. Every segment on the Waze map has an associated Primary Street ID. The Street objects are parents of all segment objects. The segment "inherits" it's name and city (and state, country) from the parent street object. Therefore, when you have selected two segments which differ only by city name, then to Waze's way of thinking (from the database POV), they do not share a common Street, which means they are not similar enough to for Waze to want to allow you to edit their information separately.

What is needed is perhaps some changing of the wording in the editor to be more clear on why the fields are being blanked out, or find out if there is some more coding which can be done to allow manipulation of the fields values which are common to both.

If you have JNF or URO installed, verify this behavior with them disabled. I know JNF hides the "show all connectivity arrows" when they are modified, so perhaps something like URO is also forcing the "closed" URs to be hidden right away too. (In fact, URO has checkboxes for this specifically.)

Perhaps so, but even with panning/zooming, you're hitting a lot of cached data. And all the highlighting is done at the browser level only, once the data is loaded from the server.

I'm going to be a pest and say, "It's been in the keyboard shortcuts documentation for quite some time."

By default, no. All layers are consistently using Shift+<first letter of layer name>.

Read the first paragraph of http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Waze ... _Shortcuts.

Aw, crap. I was just about to ask...

Hey, why is the 'c' silent in the middle of Connecticut?

davipt wrote:new WME keyboard shortcuts, "[None] Select entire street" WTH is a none?

It means there is no shortcut assigned. (Or were you asking this jokingly?) What other word do you think would make more sense here and be less confusing?

The default is Ctrl+a, per the keyboard shortcuts list in the editor manual which I'm sure you've referenced already. You must have Ctrl+a assigned to something else?

Can you select a country? There is nothing in that dropdown here in the US...

I show United States for landmarks where I was just editing.

Is anyone else seeing the console log "filling up," that is, scrolling and scrolling due to errors like:

The page at https://www.waze.com/editor/ displayed insecure content from http://marx.waze.com/socket.io/1/xhr-po ... 2390335765.

It has "calmed down" a bit now, but a few minutes ago, it was logging a new error every second.
