Not sure if you can use an existing shape, but you can import a WKT file to add an area.

You could also draw the new area over the top to get it into WAL. The area doesn't save on the map so it won't be duplicated.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I had initially drawn an area comment so I could share that area with other editors. It wasn't too complicated but took some time to accomplish. One of the drawback is the comment area is filled and not just an outline.

As you suggested I did actually overdraw it and saved in WAL - along with generating the WKT file. The benefit of the WAL area is it can be drawn as the outline - perfect! Drawback is that the WKT file would have to be shared with others ... they'd have to have WAL installed and enabled.

I'll probably take the approach of just drawing future areas in WAL ...

Be nice if WME allowed for the export of WKT for areas ...

For any existing area, you can get the WKT from any area place natively by clicking on the copy button in the left panel (see my screen grab). Just paste it in a file and save with a .WKT extension.

Nice! I guess I should go mousing around WME more - thanks for the pointer!

Anyone having any issues at the moment? WAL has been stalling and not working for me...

The problem seems to be WME Color Highlights; not sure what I am looking for in the console.
