Do you have any extensions? For example I hardly get the segments selected when using the highlights extension, have to look at the code to understand why ;)

Just a heads up that for me the INTL editor is not saving any editing at all. No errors, just no changes apply. :| time for a break

I'm also having the problem.


I think it's back :)

Edit: false alarm, could only save two edits :(

I think I found out yet another issue, albeit I think this was also happening on the previous editor. This seems to be the reason for my reversed A-B -> B->A roundabout and other segments.

- Create a segment from left to right, A->B
- Create a second segment connected to B, also left to right
- You'll have two connected segments A->B A->B
- click on the node
- press delete
- alternatively click on both segments, whichever order, and click on the bridge

what would happen
- one segment with A->B

what happens
- randomly the segment becomes B->A. Funny thing is that 90% of the time, doing "undo" and repeating the exact same operation (delete node or bridge) will do the correct thing and keep the new segment A->B

Now I understand why I have so many segments with one-way and locked but with fwd and rev average speed. It was my adjustments of ramps or roundabout nodes that were reversing the A->B to B->A and screwing the up.

Now it's way easier to identify with the big A and B balls. Again, if fails, undo and repeat!

Taking in consideration the "bug" I reported above, it would indeed be nice to be able to reset the averages, fwd and rev in separate. Because of this A-B reversal, I have now a lot of one-way segments with averages in both ways, and it would be nice to see 0 on the reverse direction which should never be driven.

Just a big thanks for having already implemented the feature of storing the state of the full screen so a refresh keeps the editor in full screen mode :)

I'm not sure Waze did this, or one of the user scripts.


AGHHHHH you are right, it's even not one of the most common ones and one I've installed and haven't yet tried out - WME Junction Node Fixer 0.0.7.3 WTH!?

Trying to delete/edit/whatever a segment I found hiding under another road and can't.. meh..


Yes. It's one of those moments where one changes something, saves, and the change is not applied. As the changes are processed in the background, they should?may? eventually happen, and in the meantime you'll get the "have been modified" because you did modify them.

Unfortunately this kind of situation is prone to create ghost segments, which are segments that will return some kind of error even when the editor is working properly. Usually they are reflected as duplicated overlapped segments (imagine you move a node slightly to the left, which should "delete" the old segment and create a new one with the new geometry, but the first part fails and two segments remains, but the one meant to be deleted can't be changed anymore). Anyway, if this happens, search for ghost segments on the support nanprep form and ask them to remove them if any ghost happens.

Myself if I see my changes not being applied in max a page refresh I just give up and try again later. Had too many ghosts in the past

PS: it seems to be better now.

PS2: try to edit other stuff. it WME is stable, that is a ghost. Just select it and send the permalink to the support asking to remove the ghost segment.
