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!

You've been a busy busy man! :o

Not sure what you mean by this bit

But I wonder if you could maybe find some way to squeeze into here that we have our own version of the guideline here?

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.

Thanks for getting this started!

I haven't looked in detail yet, but I envision a section of the new manual that is covers common editing issues and that is geared towards new editors. Easy to find and very simplistic. Such as:

* How to update a street name (with link to naming convention)
* How to correct one-way streets
* How to correct allowed and restricted turns
* How to add missing streets (this one of course is more involved)
* How to junction a road
* IMPORTANT - The 4 basic steps to editing - add road, name, junction, set allowed turns.

Sure, I should contribute to the Wiki myself. Haven't gotten that far yet :cry:

So what is the official name of the editor? Going to be keeping the old name of Cartouche? Very confusing...

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.

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.'

The Wiki is shaping up nicely! I am sure in the near future is going to be fantastic.

Nice job Alan. This was much needed now that pap is the default engine.

For some reason I could not login to the Wiki from my iPad to edit a couple of things. I'll try to do it from PC later.

Was also thinking that the Shift-click for zooming and the shift for Roundabouts should prob be in the main shortcut area and detailed more in the hints.

Trying to kick around another way to describe the m, a, s, and shift-a shortcuts to better instruct that they are toggle commands from the default edit mode, more concisely than the m command describes the toggle.
