I'm seeing something to Rubinator's screen shot above. "You are a level 3 editor, You can edit 4 miles around roads you've driven. You have 170187 points." However, I'm still really able to edit only 1 mile around roads I've driven.

According to my dashboard, I've got 22,014 map updates, so according to the wiki, I'm still nearly 80,000 edits away from being at the 4-mile editing level (except in my managed area). Of course, I wouldn't object to having a larger edit radius, but I think the "you can edit 4 miles around roads" text is a mistake.

We believe it says that for everyone by default now and isn't correct. It shows the same for country managers. It was reported during the beta and they said they would fix it. There were several bugs/issues which are in this release they said they would fix but did not.

Keyboard shorcuts updated

New
Shift+a: Area Managers layer toggle
Shift+f: full screen mode
Ctrl+a: select entire street

Changed
Shift+z: show restricted turns for all segments


Not everyone knows this: it has been in the documentation for a while, but you can remap shortcut keys.

Is there any way to enable the predictable 'click & drag' scrolling? The default speed is way too sensitive for any useful work....

[EDIT] Never mind. I disabled all scripts, cleared cache and had another look. It looks like one or other script was fiddling or clashing with mouse-down events.
I see the default is still click & drag.

The behavior that I saw was that when I left-clicked, the window would start scrolling and the speed was dependent on how far the mouse was moved, pretty much like one of the joysticks you find standard on notebooks these days.

Glad to see this is not how I thought it was.

Now to update scripts & find the culprit, if it's still there....

Hi Kuhlkatz,
Do you have URO or WazeBar installed? URO was throwing errors with the new WME and causing the scrolling to go nuts. I have patched it in WazeBar, and alerted the author as well.

New WME looks great - but found a little problem:
The "+" to add roads etc. overlays the layer selector - see attached jpeg.
How can I change this ? Is it only a problem at my desk ?


That happened to at least one person during the beta last week, and it appeared to clear itself somehow. I'd make sure you clear your cache, disable scripts/extensions related to Waze, restart the browser.


I tried my best (deactivate Greasemonkey, clear BrowserCache, restart Browser and OS) - but nothing changes...
So I will wait that it fix itself over next time.

Anyway - thanx for helping.

Indeed Mike, I already narrowed it down to URO & posted in the UROverview thread.
It seems to trigger easiest when zoomed out max, like selecting an area in the Areas tab. It also seems to trigger when you click before the page is fully loaded.
From there you are pretty much screwed for any Zooming, as the Permalink also does not get updated with the new zoom. Only way then is to disable URO to allow you to zoom to another level.

OK second try:

I want to no if you can provide a hyperlink to the previous version of WME (something like "https://world.waze.com/cartouche_old")

-> yes or no and if yes please post the link!

No, the old editor is offline and no longer available for NA and World. It has been a long time coming and is finally gone. Now we can get on with having a more stable and responsive system.

I don't think he means old cartouche. What I believe he means is yesterday's version of WME.

I'm beat for the day. I'll give it a test tomorrow. I hope it plays nice with the highlighting tool in Chrome. I can't live without it.

In that case, then no. When there is an editor upgrade like this, it replaces the old version.
