Why? Then they have to learn twice. Best just learn on the new version which is fairly intuitive.

That's what the sandbox feature is for - just don't be logged in when you access the editor and you can learn without actually changing anything...

Liking the new version so far, except that editing roads with long names is now more frustrating. Only about 13-15 characters can be seen in the road name field, which is far too few, which means I have to click and drag over text to see/edit the name. Please make the box longer / text smaller or make the whole left panel adjustable (increase info area whilst decreasing map area). Thanks.

Right now, it is of no use. But, for those who do have streets which go by multiple names, it is nice to have the data be totally correct.

I use it because often, highways or routes overlap. The primary name is used for the name most used, and alt name is where other names or routes are input. In my state of the US, all highways are named, and those usually have a route #, but not always.

Also, the primary name is used for shield creation, but alternate names can hold a local name if the route name is the most popular local name.

Permissions have not changed, but rank and cones are now synchronized. Please see the first post and note that "rank" <> "cones" in the previous editor version. Now, they are the same.

There is someone outside of Waze who is looking into a major front-end change specific to mobile/touchscreen devices to allow this. It is a major project though, as you have to override the idea of click-and-drag for scrolling, etc. Don't hold your breath for anything anytime soon. Big project.

Maybe it would be released as a cheap app to honor the development time spent on it... That's just me talking. It's never been discussed directly.

Agreed but with the final death of Cartouche there is now no ability at all to edit that data. Even if incorrect, it's locked in without an ability to edit it. I'd love to adjust what's in a lot of highway segments now that shields are working, to be able to use the local or official "name" on a road and put the Hwy designation number in the alternate. I occasionally took the effort to load up cartouche and add the alternate designations but as I wasn't sure how well it was really working I hadn't made much of an effort to do so. Now should we want to we can't. My opinion, cartouche shouldn't have been killed (perhaps locked to CM status editors) until that feature was available in the WME. And any remaining level 6 locks will be much slower to get unlocked as we could do that in cartouche.
