Added double click (to shortcuts, even if its not technically speaking a keyb-shortcut). Kill me if it's not goodlooking enough an edit ;)

Excellent. I write a lot too, but not very well. :)

One thing I found is that editing by section scrunches everything together, whereas I like an extra wide space between sections.

I am sure there is. Since you're already looking ... why don't you add that in? ;)

Would do but I wasn't sure where best and didn't want to taint your hard work! ;)

Will take a look.

'twas meant to be "Overlays/layers" are currently different on the world server.

I have made some edits and added more info to pages this morning.

The quick-start guide has been created, using the Editing Manual thread as the baseline. I think we can unsticky that thread now. It still needs some basic items added per gettingthere's bulleted list.

Shift key in keyboard shortcuts: I'm not sure they belong there as a keyboard shortcut is an action all to itself, whereas Shift for roundabouts and zooming is just a modifier. If y'all think it belongs, then go ahead and add it.

I tried to reword some of the m, a, s, shift-a shortcuts, but haven't spent much time on it. Not sure if they are better now or not.

If the keyboard shortcut for Linux is wrong, then someone who knows what it really is should change it.

Darren, I tried to be non-US centric, but I admit that it is easier said than done due to "just not knowing," you know? Please provide guidance or update text as appropriate. I am aware that the over/layers doesn't match, but I am hopeful we get to a common view soon.

Nice work, Alan!

We do need to be careful when it comes to things like naming conventions as there are country specifics at this level of detail!

In deed, good work.

I am wondering about Selecting Multiple Segments: Linux: Window-Key + Click

I use Debian based systems since years. This is written in the Wiki Pages but i never had any use for the Windows Key, with the exception of 3D desktops, since there are defined shortcuts.
It's also not a standard in Debian or Ubuntu for example.

Normally it is Ctrl + Click to select multiple segments here. And system wide as well.

WOW - just took a closer look. Tons of detail.

How much time did you spend on this so far? Impressive!

Per my last post, if we can somehow figure out how to give some basic information to new editors without making it overwhelming into they get a chance to dive in, that would be great. Maybe a section titled 'for new editors' 'getting started' etc. Very simple, but with links to more information in the editing manual that open in a new tab.

Just a suggestion.
