Update released - 2018.08.21.01

It is now possible to view and edit a Place's geometry within WME (see screenshot below). This is useful in case someone mapped something with an MC that needs to be created as a Place or if you want to duplicate a Place/Map Comment's geometry from somewhere else in the country. When you paste in the geometry and hit Apply the exact geometry will be set for that Place - it will not transpose to the new location! If you want to use the geometry from somewhere else you will need to copy the geometry of the Place and load it into http://map.wazedev.com. Then you can move the Place to the correct location and copy the new location's geometry back into a Place in Waze.

Unfortunately setting a MC's geometry isn't really possible...it kind of works with the same method as setting a Place, but the method wasn't designed to work with MCs so it causes some side effects therefor the Apply button does not display for MCs.

Available from this button:

Hi Justin,
I have un request for you.
In addition to your last update, can you add a button in map comment edit panel for directly convert MC to POI (I think : draw a POI with MC geometry then delete MC).
I find a lot of POI drawn with MC (INTL server) ...

Thanks :)

May I suggest an enhancement to an existing feature if the author finds it useful. Is it possible to lock the proportions of a place when resizing by holding Shift key while dragging the handle? Regards.

Since I don't have a (easy) way to choose the correct category when creating a new Place, it makes more sense (development-time wise) to use the new geometry feature to copy the MC's geometry into a manually created Place since you will need to set everything manually anyway. If I end up getting ahead on my to-do list someday maybe I'll tackle that as well

I'm not sure, to be honest. Hooking the resize/move events isn't as easy as it used to be. There is a shortcut to enable/disable the scaling mode, though.

Might I suggest you put the info on the parking lot estimator in the OP or (probably better) just put a link to this post from the OP to make it easier to find? :)
