Thanks for reassuring me that I wasn't losing my mind, and for the temporary fix!

The recent change to SVL regarding the interface for setting colors is pretty cool looking and makes choosing a custom color much easier (thank you!), but is also sort of problematic for some uses.

When wanting to select the same (new) color for several street types, there's no easy way to do so. Used to be a grid of colors and it was easy to pick the same one. You can get sort of close by dragging the color picker, but getting the same color on all is impossible without typing in the RGB color codes. Which leads to a second issue.... if you're going to type in RGB color codes, it would be helpful if the text in each box would highlight upon tabbing in. Presently when you tab from R to G to B, the cursor comes in at the end of the text string, and you have to hit the backspace to clear the old RGB number out.

If the option cannot be restored to choose between color picker or grid, can we at least get the RGB fields to preselect text when tabbing through them?

Thanks for your consideration.

Interesting. OK, does anyone know how to flip it back?

Very nice! Perhaps a little decluttering of the road names ;)

Looking forward to the color change panel.

Also, I know not everyone likes this feature of the new road layer, but it would also be nice to have the road name text match the road type color (as an option), especially if it's not possible to make OpenLayers show the text at an angle along the road.

Very slick using the attribution bar to change ;) The only problem, you can't change colors with satellite imagery turned off! :o

You can do this – just change the number in the configuration panel.

  • Labels are shifted slightly toward north, in order to see also the arrow below the names and the labels don't cover the segment if it is horizontal.

Hey, this one is a nice idea, but a little confusing in practice.. it seems like the names are a little too far away from the road. It's kind of hard to tell what names goes to what roads. Also, as I'm seeing now, sometimes the name goes to the north, sometimes to the south. It seems it would be a little less confusing if at least they all went the same direction.

Is it possible to support MPH also? Numbers should be 35 and 60.

I like that idea!

What about the possibility of also adding a "clock" if some or all of those restrictions are time-based restrictions?

It is in the bottom left of the editor window, next to Terms and Notices.
