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.

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 :)


blim you just saved my life! who would have guessed it was possible to change the shortcuts? Haven't seen that anywhere yet.

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)

I'm going to be a pest and say, "It's been in the keyboard shortcuts documentation for quite some time."

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

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.


Oh, geez almighty. Looks like I get to fudge with the highlighting script again and add landmarks to city highlighting. ;)

Because they don't want the extra Illinoise.

In all seriousness, I've been trying to come up with methodologies to deal with city smudges recently, and it's really dang hard to do. At this point, I really wish there were ways to identify a numerical CityID, and just have it spit out 'all segments and lat/long of one of its connected nodes' at me, so I can get rid of the dang things. At this point, it'd surely be less taxing on the database server than having to scroll around, zooming in and out, querying thousands of segments with the highlighting script -- and even then not finding it. ;)

Perhaps so, but even with panning/zooming, you're hitting a lot of cached data. And all the highlighting is done at the browser level only, once the data is loaded from the server.

And after all that work, six months later the city area layer haven't yet been updated and people still complain about a damn city name on the wrong segment on the wrong place that makes that small city become more prominent than, and even over, Lisbon, the capital of Portugal ;) we all hate that city these days, it's everywhere we drive.

At a certain point I just gave up and drawn "other" landmarks over the cities, first to use the extensions scripts to do a mass city set, but just kept them around.

Maybe it's better to forget the automatically city-areas and just let the editors draw them out, with a special landmark with a different colour than most other landmarks - the only disadvantage right now, every landmark not park/green or gas mostly blends with the city area :(
