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 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 :)

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.

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:

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 :)

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.

Since it is broken for the foreseeable future, I don't think it would help with anything to do that.
