One suggestion - can you add a key binding option for it, please?

Thanks!


Yes, I'll add it this weekend.


Update released - 2018.05.19.01

Added blank keyboard shortcut for orthogonalization. Go into the Keyboard shorcuts menu to set the keystroke combination.

Justin and his team is doing wonderful work. I hope Waze sees this.

Update released - 2018.05.22.01

Added a button to clear the geometry of an area Place - resets back to a 20x20 square.

I am aware of the issues with the Parking Lot Estimator - at this time I am not sure what was changed in the last WME update to make it so my layer is click through which makes it so the Place you are calculating the parking spots for is clickable (which then un-selects the Place and breaks the workflow). I am looking into it but I cannot promise a resolution timeframe.

I'm not sure we need to reset geometry so easily and so often - the same result can be achieved by pressing Point Place - deselect - select - Area Place. What we definitely need more is Simplify Place.

I'm not sure we need such feature so much - the same result can be achieved by pressing Point Place -deselect - select - Area Place. What is missing from the functionality of WME probably is Simplify Place.

I'm confused why you think there is no benefit in reducing a 4 step process down to one step.

Regardless, it's already implemented :)

New RPP placements are not picking up and autofilling the alt city when primary is set to None. I don't see any PIE errors in my console. Happens 100% of the time for me when placing an RPP adjacent to any segment with no primary but with an alt.

Also noticed that autofill of closest segment name is becoming hit and miss. When placing this RPP, zoomed in far enough that only the PR was visible on the screen, the script autofilled the street as "I-5 S", which is very significantly farther away than NW 41st Ave. If 41st Ave is visible on screen, it works OK.

Maybe this is WAD, but it just seems less reliable than it used to be.

Thanks for all the work on this script!

Follow up to above.... now that I have moved into another area, I have found the problem to be specific to a particular city where I am working.

Autofill works like a charm when working anywhere in rural Battle Ground (No City, Battle Ground as Alt). Move just a quarter mile back to where I was, and it fails every time when working anywhere in rural La Center (No City, La Center as Alt).

Update released 2018.06.06.01

Adding the ability to simplify the Place's geometry (with accompanying keyboard shortcut). Currently the default setting of 5 is used, but will be adding the ability to customize this value (the entry is in the tab, just not hooked up to be used yet).

Adding shortcuts for all of the new Place menu options. When the keyboard shortcut is activated, if a Place is selected the category assigned to the Place menu item will be added to the selected Place if it does not exist already.

If a Place is not selected when the keyboard shortcut is used, the new Place mode will be started.

Sometimes I meet a place with two links to the same Google place. Here's an example. I think it's worth marking such places.
