Since today morning it is not possible to edit an area I was able to edit just the other day after I drove it. Several other a little bit older drives are also affected.

Well. German keyboard layout would also require a double-shift.
Please fix this. Either make it "?"-only or "Shift+h" for example for "help".

Did you try it, the ?? For me the ? is already shifted, so shift-? sounds a little stupid, but it works when I type a ? (shift needed). I use the American keyboard where the ? is the shifted / key. Working with Chrome on windows.


You are right - I just wanted to show the dilemma. I use Firefox on Windows.

2nd: This function is not mentioned in the wiki.

Which function isn't mentioned in the wiki? German keyboard layout activator for the help window?


I searched the Questionmark full text in http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... d_Controls which was not successful.

EDIT: Found it in http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Waze ... _Shortcuts!
Doesn't work in FF16 on Windows.

You already can select multiple roads (CTRL-Click them or turn on multi-select [see the keyboard shortcuts] and then just click) one at a time or pick one, then "Select Entire Street"...

You can change type, direction, level on roads with different City/Street names this way...

If you want to change City or Street property, you have to change BOTH fields together - you can't select Main St & Town Rd to change just the City property because you'll end up losing the Street name...

Last night while requesting some unlocks to resolve various UR's in my area, I noticed some inconsistent behavior with it, in that it sometimes included the selections and other times didn't.

I've found that the segments are not selected at higher zoom levels... Try changing the zoom level manually in the permalink to see if it works....

From the first post in this topic
shirlig wrote:4) Cones and old ranks are now synced and displayed everywhere as follows:

old rank 0 = 1 cone
old rank1 = 2 cones (currently not in use)
old rank 2 = 3 cones
old rank 3 = 4 cones

old rank 5 = 6 cones (currently not in use)
old rank 6 = STAFF


Has there been a change to ranks since that post? I have a local editor with a rank of (2)...

Ok, maybe calling it a "bug" was wrong... It's still counter-intuitive though...

I think I found another bug... In the layers menu, you can move a few of the layers around, so they are on top of each other in a specific order... The layer at the top of the list is actually below the other layers and the layer at the bottom of the list is on the top of all the layers.

No, that's a primary road (not a major highway)
I'm trying to deny the possibility to turn south, into a secondary road (recently blocked to non-residential traffic).

Here it is the permalink:
https://it.waze.com/editor/?lon=9.57452 ... s=83328752

Attached a screenshot. The green road with arrow is the one I'm driving on.
Even if it is into my driving area (confirmed by the tool), you can see on the left that I'm not enabled to edit :\

thanks for hints


Just realized those segments are unlocked (lock box is unchecked). OK, I'm definitively lost... I identified many other (even bigger) errors I cannot fix due to same reason... :cry:

You are in Italy... The entire Italian map has been locked due to some serious vandalism. Try reaching out to your Area/Country Managers in the Board index ‹ Country (Language) Forums ‹ Italy forum.

Also see my response to your unlock request for a possible better way to make the change you are trying to do.
