What about adding an option for autosave?
Allow a setting for every 10, 20, 50 changes ?

That could be useful, but also really painful. Or problematic. There are some types of changes which you don't want to keep, like dragging another segment or creating another segment just to split a road. You're going to delete it in the next "change" so I wouldn't want to save it...

Maybe set it to always default to Off when first opening the map?
Then depending on what you are doing, the user can enable it
The area I am editing has not had a lot of edits so I can easily get many simple changes very quickly.

If there's good reasons for not adding it, then okay.
Just tossing out some suggestions

Sounds like a good idea, but I can see problems with it as well. Imagine you're in the middle of edits, and the auto-save is triggered, but encounters an error and pulls you away from the edit you were on, not only taking you away from your edit, but also possibly messing things up by interrupting, moving the map, or what not. If you were in the middle of dragging something, that could be bad and you might drag something half-way across the country. :)

For sure off by default. I think it sure could be potentially helpful, and I can think of any significant harm it would cause in general use. Mike, if you want to implemented it and test yourself and let us know how you feel it works in practice, cool.

Only allow a save when nothing is selected?

Autosave could be trigged by a timer.

Good points. I will add autosave as an experimental feature that you will have to enable manually in the Safari Extension settings, that way we can try it out without having it cause havoc.

Also, I have updated the list of known issues, and I am working on addressing them. Thanks everyone for all your help with feedback, testing, etc. Thanks Alan, for all your hard work and dedication (hope you didn't take any offense to my odd sense of humor regarding the "tool" joke, was just a play on words, nothing implied).

Re: WazeBar v0.0.19 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Patch 0.0.19 is now out. It fixes a few minor things:
  • Theme can be set in Safari Extension Settings (changing the theme in the front-end will not be persistent -- we are still working on a way to resolve this limitation).
  • Save button updates now and enumerates the number of edits to be saved. Also changes color to red when more than 9 edits are unsaved.
  • Fixed issue where segment nodes would jump while editing if map hadn't been manipulated beforehand.

Mike, I'm not sure if the most recent update to JNF should be working, but that part isn't showing WazeBar in 0.0.19 for me in the beta. Is this a known situation? I know JNF got 3-4 updates today as the beta versions flopped around...
