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.

Good work. I've done lots of technical editing and instruction manual writing in my job, so I applied my experience to try to simplify and clarify your words. I hope you approve.

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.

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

You killed me. I did pretty it up a bit. :)

I also added that the Mac has dual keyboard shortcuts as Ctrl and Cmd mirror each other.

And since I'm here, I encourage everyone to refer to the manual when answering questions from users. If something isn't there which should be, add it, or let me know. I encourage the direct editing because I cannot be a bottleneck for getting proper information into the wiki.

With the recently posted cameras info from Krankyd, which is really a repost of what Nir had posted a couple (a few?) weeks ago, I am just now starting on the Cameras details page which will give more information than the Map Editor Interface and Controls page.

When working on this, maybe refer to what Krankyd refers to as the azimuth as the lens direction to make it easier to understand :) 'Point the lens of the camera photo towards the direction of traffic that is being photographed.'

I don't see anywhere in the guide (or video) about how to delete a road segment.

Waze keeps telling me, when I get close to my house, to drive onto a street that simply is not there. Sure, if you go over two blocks in the grid, the street is there, but for those two blocks, there is no street.

Someone has already designated one of those blocks as "stairway", but that didn't prevent Waze from thinking I could drive it. The other block is shown as a two way street. It simply does not exist.

I tried deleting it by selecting it and pressing delete on my keyboard: nothing. I tried grabbing one end and dragging it to the other (so there would be no segment), but no luck.

Hm!

To delete a single segment, you should be able to click on it and hit your delete key, or click the garbage can icon. To delete multiple segments, the delete key won't work at all...you have to click the garbage can.

You have to have permissions on the segment you're trying to delete and also the adjacent connected segments. If it's a permissions issue, please post an unlock request.

The stairway is an undrivable segment, but if it's connected to a real road, it can be routed. Common practice is to disconnect that sort of thing from the real roads, but the correct thing to do is get rid of it completely, as it serves no purpose being on the map.

That did the trick (not the delete key on my MacBook Pro, but the select-and-click-trash-can).

Seems like one could add that content above to the Wiki?

I suspect you haven't actually read the Editing Manual yet. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... ing_a_road
