mapcat wrote:Bug(?) in chrome, windows: hitting Q when a node is selected automatically turns off the yellow (soft turn) but not the magenta (reverse connectivity) highlights. If I hover over the magenta after hitting Q, it disappears, however.

I attempted to fix this by binding a reset function to the Q key. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in Chrome. :( It does work in Firefox though.

Many many thanks to Timbones and bgodette for this script. The number of reverse connectivity issues that exist is downright startling!

It is, until you consider that the default behavior in WME for about a year was to produce reverse connectivity, which then just makes it sad. :(

Word of advice before everyone goes off on a 'Q W' spree : make sure you verify existing turn restrictions first... :grin:

Hi Tim, would an additional checkbox to disable or enable the turn-highlighting functionality be something that is easily doable? In most cases they are extremely helpful, but there are times when one would want to turn off highlighting.

I really miss the highlighting of all nodes with soft turns and segments with revcon. Any chance these will return?

I believe there was already a conversation on that topic during the beta phase. Cannot find the thread at the moment.

I stopped upgrading once that feature went away, because I have a thing about preventative maintenance. Should probably discuss it in the original forum, though.

I seem to have run into an issue with the city highlighting. I select a city from the drop down, and not all the roads that are in that city get highlighted.

I added in an image of the drop down for city selection, and there are a couple of options (including the state, which is odd. I've not seen any roads in the area that have the state mistakenly entered into the city field, but I've not checked every road. The state has been in the drop down every time I've checked it across multiple areas of Kokomo). I can select either of the other 2 options, and no roads get highlighted at all. Also, note that the grey "No city" option is checked, and these roads are not marked as "no city".

This is located here, if you want to take a look yourself.

Also, note that the "Highlight a road type" function doesn't seem to be working, either. There is nothing populating the drop down box. However, when the check box is selected, I occasionally get a random segment or two highlighted in purple.

I got the notice today in FF that the script had automatically updated itself, so I went to Chrome, downloaded the update and dropped it on the extension page. The city highlight issue happens in Chrome v22.0.1229.79, but it doesn't seem to happen in FF 15.0.1. Some zooming in & out seems to refresh it in Chrome & it will display properly. The "Highlight a road type" doesn't seem to work in either Chrome or FF.

All in all, I'm very happy with this extension!!! Makes life much easier, thank you!
