Please keep my 'drive' that I clicked on highlighted so I can remember which 'drive' I'm looking at.

Previous editor kept it highlighted/marked............


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 >:)

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.

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.
Problem started about 24 hours ago and was reported at https://www.waze.com/support/.
Chrome Browser in Win7.
Have disabled all extensions.
Have cleared cookies.
No joy.

Any suggestions?

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 ;)

Im having an issue where I load a recent drive, and wish to use the "create road" function that appears over 30% of the map screen. Problem is after the road is created I can't save it because I "don't have permission"... and its my drive... hmmm...

Hello

Since the new update I'm experiencing some problems when I want to edit. When zoomed in, I select a street that I want to edit. Unfortunately the left editor area doesn't say "one segment selected" (including all editable information) like it should be. It keeps saying "hello stijnley, you are level 1 editor......."

When I zoom out and select the same street, I can edit a few minutes after zooming back in. But the problem keeps coming back when selecting a nearby street.

Can someone help me out?

Thank you!

While I am unable to replicate your exact scenario, it sounds like you may be experiencing JavaScript errors, which can break functionality. See if refreshing the page lets you edit again when this happens to you next time. Everyone has been getting a lot of errors lately due to the fact that they are constantly working on and tweaking WME live.

I have the same problem. So I have to zoom in and out serveral times and then I can select some streets.
