Mike, what do you think about adding back the main Waze links "Download" "Guided Tour" etc? I love WazeBar, but feel, from a branding perspective, perhaps we shouldn't be hiding this. Even the Waze logo and tagline are important to brand.

Okay, I said I was going to do other things, but I came back. :)

Timebone's script is showing in WME where it usually does on the left-bottom part of the window. I thought previously that this was hidden. If I uncheck the option to use his script in Prefs, it goes away, but so does the part of the WazeBar which integrates it.

Here's a snapshot of WME beta with WazeBar 0.0.11, which isn't yet optimized for the beta, with Timbone's highlights built in.

Maxed screen size on a 1920x1200 screen. Wheeee!

Hi Alan (and anyone else interested in testing this): I have a preview version of 0.0.11 available for testing in beta WME.

General functionality is fine. A couple UI problems:
1. It says, "Welcome, 1." instead of the username when logged in.
2. The "hello <username>" text appears on the right side of the WazeBar
3. The Highlights tab is still active. This is where Timbone's highlight user script appears in the beta as that is the proper location for it here.

I will be working on beta compatibility for the 0.0.10 patch over the next few days.

The toolbar does fully appear now. Thanks! (But I really just wanted it to work with the beta. Shouldn't it? :D )

I don't think there is any documentation on that. I've wondered myself at times...

mike-bronner wrote:Oh, also please post if you are experiencing issues while using the beta editor. (Theoretically the extension shouldn't even be running in the beta editor, but you never know.) If you do suspect an issue, please take a look at the error console output to see if there are any errors.

Why don't you enable it for the beta, too? It seems that your fix for the screen setup in the production editor has also fixed it in the beta. The only thing now is the Toolbar is half there: the Find box shows, but the buttons do not. Also, since it "isn't loading" for the beta, the WazeBar doesn't appear at all. With the number of users so small who can get into the beta editor, I think you should enable it so we can troubleshoot. :)

Though it's password protected, I don't want to post. It is listed at the top of Timbones' highlighting userscript.

mike-bronner wrote:I was going to add that option in the next update, I kind of figured that might be useful. Just to get an idea, what would your impetus be for using the original size instead of full-screen? (Just trying to figure out what the different use-cases are for that.)

Based on what we understand from Waze, the editing window maximum is set on purpose. This viewable area is directly related to server and network load in terms of preparing road images and sending them to the client. If everyone uses a 25% increased editor viewable area, that is potentially a 50% increase in server and/or network load. (There is a lot of caching going on, so 50% is approximate.) I personally have no issue with the smaller editing window and would, for the sake of overall editor/server-side performance, choose to use it as such.
