Hi Alan,
Thanks for reporting back. I took the latest version (1.1.0) from the Userscript.org page. There were initially some oddities with the advanced options showing, but they will show up once you log out, refresh, then log in again, with a possible refresh after that. I will work on displaying the version information -- it's a bit different than with Userscripts, while I could just hard-code the version number, I would actually like to display the actual version number, less of a maintenance nightmare that way. :)
I will post some updates this evening.

Update: It looks like there is an issue with advanced options. I will look into that. It was working for me yesterday evening, I must have inadvertently changed something during debugging at some point.

Update: Problem found. Extension has been recompiled and uploaded: https://github.com/mikebronner/WME-Colo ... safariextz

Mike, the extension doesn't appear to be v1.1. I can't quite tell as it doesn't show the version # info like the Chrome one. I don't get the extended info that country managers are supposed to see either.

Thanks, Tim. :) If it's OK, I'd like to continue to roll in your updates as you release them.

The thought crossed my ming as well, but considering that the only users of this plugin are map editors, not to mention volunteers, this is a very limited userbase, and not really worth it. Speaking for myself, I think it's a nice and small project, great for learning and helping out.

Hi Tim,
Thank you VERY much for such a useful script. Unfortunately I couldn't get it to work in Safari (even with NinjaKit, the Greasemonkey replacement for Safari) it didn't run. So I set about learning Safari Extensions, and adapted your work as an Extension that works natively in Safari. It can be downloaded here: https://github.com/mikebronner/WME-Color-Highlights.
I gave you full credit, of course, as you did all the heavy lifting. As a Mac user, I have come to prefer Safari over other browsers, and wanted to see it work there too. Please let me know if this is OK with you -- if not, I'll be happy to take it down, or alter it in such a way that would accommodate any changes you request.

Thanks!
~Mike

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

Also there are many instances in loops where you need the extra junction, but I guess the script could ignore junctions with segments that meet at both ends.

I figured you had. I can't logically deduce what could be happening, but something clearly is done differently when not logged in that the script gets in the way of, perhaps by causing some kind of error which prevents the enabling of the toolbar...

I tested logging out of the editor and logging back in with the highlights script enabled and disable and I feel that it is 100% reproducible that with the highlights script enabled and being logged out of the editor, causes the Toolbar to remain inactive after logging in until after clicking on or loading a permalink.

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

Yes, I already install v1.1
Now the transparent pale red of this road is imperceptible on the real red color. I want more bright and fat

Are we sure about this? There seems to be some evidence to the contrary.
