I can't know, I have no shortcuts documentation access with my main waze editing browser :P:P:P:P

(is it also on the wiki?)

You can redefine them. Click on what you want to change in the help list, then press the key stroke you want. I have shift-m = managers and shift-a = arrows myself :)

Now I just need to *change* the shortcut key to *open* the shortcut keys dialogue on firefox to be able to *change my shortcuts* :oops: (in several european keyboard, the "?" is already shift-something, so shift-? does works on safari and opera but not firefox)

By default, no. All layers are consistently using Shift+<first letter of layer name>.

Read the first paragraph of http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Waze ... _Shortcuts.

EDIT: Beat by the WeeeeeeeeeeZerOneFour. :)

It means there is no shortcut assigned. (Or were you asking this jokingly?) What other word do you think would make more sense here and be less confusing?

The default is Ctrl+a, per the keyboard shortcuts list in the editor manual which I'm sure you've referenced already. You must have Ctrl+a assigned to something else?


It was a short bug report stating that the new WME "?" help dialogue is not consistent with its own key shortcuts, as it states "ctrl-a" to enable area managers - which is really "shift-a" (*), and "ctrl-a" is indeed used to select all segments, but funnily stated as none.

(*) which is a shame, as we're certainly already hardcoded to use the shift-a to toggle the connectivity arrows, which is now shift-z. I'm still constantly looking at the map and thinking "where are my arrows? and why is everything purple? oh right, z, not a!"

Aw, crap. I was just about to ask...

Hey, why is the 'c' silent in the middle of Connecticut?

Can you select a country? There is nothing in that dropdown here in the US...

I show United States for landmarks where I was just editing.

It's the invisible button between ESC and F1 :)


I hope it's not some windows key I haven't on my Mac :lol:

Na, in all seriousness, I think its something they're fiddling around with, where the key assignment just hasn't been established yet.
