Re: [Script] WME Toolbox (1.8.14)

Anyone else had issues with fancy permalinks?

For Map Update Requests (MUR) it should be posting a reply to the thread found in f=63 and t=45872
But instead it's opening a new thread in our Unlock Requests forum (f=852)

It's like both the MUR and UnlockR have the same target instead of different ones like before.

That is a 2-segments loop, loops should never be less than 3 segments (minimum). Red/green arrows or the segments' directions don't matter. The editor who contacted you is right.

I've also seen it happen and Toolbox should definitely keep highlighting this editing mistake.

I'm more than familiar with it, thus why I gave you my first response. It also says that "every loop must be made up of three or more segments" and to "correct two-segment loops".

I assumed you didn't know about that for asking and would have shared it with you in case you had more doubts. However if you already knew about it and choose to ignore it, that's a PEBCAK and there's nothing we can do.

when segment direction and turn arrows are put in consideration, there's no loop. Show me the loop!!

You must have missed it, but I already said this in my first reply:

Now you've seen others confirm it above and give more details. Several of us have also witnessed the routing problems it can cause, even when it's setup like you've done it. So if you prefer to think that we're all delusional or imply that we are collectively lying to you, you're free to do what you want and ignore what everyone is telling you.

Properties editor not working on Roosevelt Bridge
* Bridge is editable for me. I can change the name on a segment myself.

* select the two segments of the Roosevelt Bridge
* use the properties editor to change the street name, but no other properties
* Hit apply
* See the message "WME Toolbox: Info : Creating new street object..."
* No change to the edit count. No change to the segment names.

Thanks for having a look.

Never mind. I can't reproduce this behavior.
I have a request for the Copy Segment Attributes.

I am using it today on a section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Starting at one end of the section I set the attributes the way I wanted then on one segment and then selected the following radio buttons and boxes:
* Copy from first selected segment
* Max Speed
* Delete existing alternate street names
* Copy Alternate Street Name

This works beautifully, until one of the segments I want to be updated does not have an existing alternate street name. IN this case, "copy alternate street name" does not happen.

Can this be fixed, so that "copy alternate street name" works even with "delete existing alternate street names" checked, even if there were not any alternate street names to be deleted?

That would really make this kind of work quicker and more accurate.

Thanks for your help. Without copy segment attributes, I'd be moving much more slowly and making more errors.

Thank you for the update that has Copy Segment Attributes working again.

Can you look at changing its behavior with regards to copying a SL when the destination segment(s) have an already-matching, but unverified, speed limit? Currently, it will not copy / verify a matching SL value, which defeats the purpose of Copy Segment Attributes.

Thanks for considering this request for enhancement.

------------------------------------------------------------------
I am working my way along the main line of the Penna. Tpk, cleaning up alt names while also adding speed limits.

I have the following checked:
* Copy from first selected segment
* Delete existing alternate street name
* Copy alternate street name

For segments where the destination SL value matches the source SL value, the SL is not copied. Nor is the SL verified. The alternate street names are cleaned up, though, so I do have edits to the segments. But I cannot save them because of the unverified speed limits.

RE: Copy Segment Attributes

This is a very useful tool. Can "state" be one of the attributes copied?
Every once in a while, I come across a patch of segments with the wrong state along with other wrong attributes, and it would be convenient to change them all at once time.

Thanks for your help!

Oh! Because it did not give the option, I did not even think to check if it would do that. Thanks for the answer and thanks for testing.

This is a known WME bug, which is not related to Toolbox. Can't find the link to more information on that now, can someone help out?
