Posted during beta testing and not fixed. "Kindergarden" is also incorrect.

Another point I'm curious about: How do points show up on the Live Map or the app maps?

We do not yet know. Ideally, in a future app release, like maybe 4.0, we will get some zoom-based visibility of Point places with category-specific (maybe parent category-specific) icons at the point, etc. This information has not been released yet. Just my conjecture.

Layers menu

The Layers menu should open on mouse over - not requiring a click to open and close.

Totally agree. I gave that suggestion during testing.

Is proper time-stamping of URs/Issues going to make a release soon instead of everything happening 'yesterday'?

'Residence / Home' - Is this promoting the marking of individual polygons for residences now as opposed to just marking the address via the street segment 'Edit House Numbers' feature?

They are still there. Some browsers don't pick up on the changes right away. Cache and force reload usually does it.


I know this is probably being worked on... The URs, MPs and arrows are not showing for me in Firefox 28.0 (I have cleared cache and restarted multiple times). I was able to see them using IE 11 (which I don't use because I have scripts installed in Firefox). :(

Don't take this as promoting the marking of individual residences. During the beta release the guidance provided was:

Well, I wasn't taking at is such but we all know new editors will and will have every house marked they can find...just curious as to the thought behind this new category.

Thanks CB!
