Do you have v1.1? That already makes them bold and red. Do you want them more bright or fat?

Hello, Timbones
Can this script add highlights for red segments (a new road recorded via client) - more bright or fat color? It would make appreciable such segments of big scales on the maps

While these are superfluous nodes, they don't really affect routing and so don't need to be deleted.

Thanks for all your work on this. I would like to see a highlight for soft-turn restrictions.

What browser, version and OS are you on? This was never reported during testing.

On a related note, it appears that sometimes the buttons and search bar are disabled sometimes after initial login to the editor. Usually, a permalink click solves the issue. Could you verify whether clicking permalink does or does not make this problem go away?

I had the same issue. I was away from the computer for a while and needed to log in again when I returned to WME. After logging in the buttons wouldn't ungrey. Also, the Advanced options weren't in the highlights tabs. This was on FF14.0.1 with Highlights 1.1.0 running in Vista 64bit.

Reloading the page fixed it all.

I fully agree. They are supposed to be butt-ugly and 'in-your-face'.
Looking around areas that I have 'unlocked', I would say that WME should go as far as NOT allowing any [other] edits while there are newly paved roads in your viewport.

People almost never remove all the paves of driveways or building complexes that are 100% useless.
They also seem to ignore the incomplete edit adjusts for previous pavers. Seems like it's too much trouble just to look up the actual street name or even area and fix the direction and turn restrictions.
Nooooo, there's 100's Km more of red road to add before they would do such a simple thing. :roll:

{edit} : Just clarified the edit part. Not being able to edit at all will not allow you to 'fix' the reds.

I'll see what I can do to make this more robust.

As is ALWAYS on? No way to turn it off?

Yes, it's always on, with no option to turn it off. Is there ever a need to disable it?

AndyPoms wrote:On the previous version one could select an editor & see their recent edits as well as locks (depending if the lock roads box was checked)... Or was I seeing ALL their edits before and now there is the option to "hide" older ones?

Before, the script would highlight any segments that were either recent or edited by a user (in green). Now, it only highlight segments that are both recent and edited by a user (in green). Segments locked by that user should still be highlighted in red, etc.

User levels? Can we highlight by editing rank now too?

The user levels appear in the dropdown box of editors, in brackets. The old editor shows the old levels (AM = 2), while the new editor will show number of cones (AM = 4).

I shall reintroduce them at some point, once I've figured out an appropriate way to present them.

Timbones wrote:- added Filter by City in Yellow

Very cool feature... Seems to be a little flaky when updating the city dropdown box... Loaded WME in one town, zoomed out, panned over to a different town, list never changed... Zoomed in almost all the way, list still didn't change... Refreshed page, got one town, although I was sitting on the border of two... Zoomed in on other town, got dropdown to refresh with 4 closest towns...

On the previous version one could select an editor & see their recent edits as well as locks (depending if the lock roads box was checked)... Or was I seeing ALL their edits before and now there is the option to "hide" older ones?

P.S. This is a wonderful plugin & I use it constantly... I kinda snuck into your beta when someone posted a screenshot of it and I did a search for the name... Every change has been for the better... Keep up the good work... Thanks again.
