The checkboxes under the Validator section don't seem to save between permalinks/sessions. Is this by design? (Because I would expect if I uncheck "Exclude non-drivables and streets" that it would stay that way.

Yep, that was the idea :lol: In 0.4.3 there are just 2 default options: non-editables and duplicates. Let me know if it's ok now or shall I store the values across sessions.

And the same with the settings: there are just 2 persistent options...
For me, I would expect any setting to be saved across sessions.

So I click this button and the flashing segments go away. But, as soon as I pan the map, they reappear instantly. Am I doing something wrong?
The "highlight segments" option and "report" feature are separate. You don't need to run the report to highlight/flash the segments live as you work. The report feature scans the map across a wider area than the highlighting can work (due to zoom at which objects are selectable) and gives you a nice long summary page.

City name on Railroad
What is the problem? City name on the Railroad may cause a city smudge.
Can that be turned off in the US, too? :D
Railroads should not have a city name applied anywhere. There's other discussion threads about this. Unless they are local light-rail stuff.

I don't think I agree with this either. Though maybe I misunderstand what you are saying. Soft turns should be reported on all segments, including dead-end u-turns.

Does a NOTE flash the road to call attention to it? 'Cause that's what I'm looking for when I'm panning around the map. :-)
It will flash blue because it would be a Note and not yellow. I'd prefer to keep it all the way it was before for the US.

Going the wrong way on a 1-way is just another penalty to the Waze routing model. It happens much less often now, but it can happen.

SuperDave1426 wrote:Or really? Wow, that's bizarre. Even with that, you'd think that there'd be less of a penalty for going down the permitted way, and thus that would be the way it would route you.
Sorry, off-topic, but to finish this up I think, for example: When toll road avoidance was first activated. There are many interstate bridges mapped properly as two 1-way segments, with there being a toll applied to only one direction of the bridge. Waze would route drivers backwards along the non-tolled segments. :roll:

WME beta had the 2-way change built-in and the roundabout issue has also been noted in the beta feedback.

There was a US discussion in the last couple of months about whether there are proper places to not have first letter upper case on real streets. I don't remember the thread or the outcome at this time, but this needs examination. Ramps starting with "to" should definitely be an exception for this check, at least in the US.
