I can't reproduce this one.

I noticed the "State" dropdown is no longer present in Canada. It used to say 'Other' or perhaps 'New York' depending on where I was, but it's just not there anymore.

Another thing that would be AMAZING (and I'm secretly hoping I can already do this and just don't know it yet...) is select an entire street and be able to click w to enable all turns at the junctions. I am in the process of dang near re-doing an entire city due to the unknown/one way roads that are in reality two way roads enabling all junctions in-between. If there is a way to enable these junctions without having to click on each one individually and then hitting w, PLEASE let me know :)


"Suppress turn restrictions" (or whatever it was called) on the last WME script would have worked, but of course that's broken now.

Time for me to take a nap.

Yeah, so I just tap escape. Not sure about the "quickly" part as it just stays there once I hit Esc. Or I just click Apply. But, Esc then tab 4 times gets you to Apply if we're staying close to the keys.

Whereas before, it was 2 keystrokes, now it's 5.

Annoyingly now, when you start typing a street/city name and it starts matching something else in the "help" list that pops down below, it selects the first entry in the list when you hit tab. This didn't happen before.

I just don't get why the City field even appears in Alternate as a separate option then. I thought it was to select different alt names for the different cities the road travels through, as all the segments I'm finding with this already filled out have different city names than the primary.

When this happens, if I click anywhere on the screen, it places the geometry node at that spot. It's very annoying during mass edits and deletes, where I'm trying to delete a lot of unneeded driveways or nodes in a reasonable amount of time. The only workarounds are to either hit escape and cancel the action, or wiggle the cursor over the selected segment back and forth until it "releases" and goes back to a cursor.


I'm getting this happen all the time. Really annoying! :x I think it's a timing issue: I get the impression that it happens when you click on the link and immediately move the pointer away. Although it seems to have grabbed the node and you can't "drop" it, it hasn't actually done so. I normally save and then permalink and the node is back where it started. I shall have to try wiggling. :lol:

I'm using Chrome, latest version, on Windows XP. I won't be home & editing for a couple of hours, but I'll try disabling scripts to see if it makes a difference (apart from crippling my editing :P ).

I've seen this too and it's not the old behaviour. You can select a segment and it will turn blue but not show the end points and not be editable. You can de-select it, select another segment and the same thing will happen. You have to refresh or hit permalink to fix it.

I think it started more recently than the introduction of the new editor, but possibly coincident with the switch to new infrastructure for INTL. Perhaps WME (on old infrastructure) is getting out of sync?
