"loading road images" appears to be failing.
When roads layer is on I see pink. Mouse-over shows roads data is there.


I think it's called "the weekend has started so the servers will be slow". Have patience and it it doesn't improve, wait until tomorrow when they get back to work ;)

Is anyone else having this problem???

"loading road images" appears to be failing.
When roads layer is on I see pink. Mouse-over shows roads data is there.

No joy.

Any suggestions?

Another suggestion, I think I saw it on this thread once but I'll ask it again:

please keep the shift-f full screen state on the local cookie, so a page refresh will remain full screen.

I'd go even further and ask for an improvement on this - please keep the drive on the map when we save.
Right now if I try to fix stuff around a drive, when I click on the drive the maps zooms out to cover the whole drive. To edit, one has to zoom in to concentrate on a zone, edit, and out of the habit, save constantly. The drive green line goes away, and when clicking on the drive, it zooms out again. So it's more time spent zooming out and back in than proper editing.

An alternative suggestion is to let the drive get unselected, but when selecting a drive, only zoom out if the drive doesn't pass around the current zoomed view. Or let the user decide if selecting a drive would zoom out. Or someone add me a checkbox for this in one of the scripts. Or I'll go do it myself >:)

I thought Shift-Z was a curious change, but after using it a while I think it's actually slightly easier than Shift-A. I love that we can change the shortcuts, though. That's a nice touch.

When I first started editing, I was using my mouse left handed but I switched because I was going so crazy it literally left me in pain after marathon editing sessions. In fact, my whole left arm hurts all day every day now. Maybe it's just being a lefty spazz, but I actually worked quicker that way, with the keyboard shifted to my far right so my right hand could work all the shortcuts. ;)

You prefer to work slower?

Ctrl-a or cmd-a is your friend.

For the scrolling and tab issues just use Firefox (or Safari) instead of chrome for a while ;)

Firefox is a dog on my work laptop for some reason. It renders things weirdly.

For some reason also, my left hand isn't on the keyboard when needing to hit "Select All Segments". I will have to revise my editing strategy when I'm "in the zone".

Oh and whose idea was it to make Shift+A into Shift+Z ?!


You know you can remap your shortcuts however you want. I immediately changed Shift+A back to the arrow dimmer. I don't really need a shortcut to the AM layer...if I need to see that, I can use the menu.

Do you use your mouse left-handed or something? I remapped the little accent key under the tilde (left of the 1) to work as a DEL key, so I can do all my common editing shortcuts with my left hand and work the mouse with my right hand. The only time I have to take my hand off the mouse is if I need to type a street name.
