Often, segment selection just fails and I have to hit Permalink to refresh it.

This is a huge problem because an unterminated dead-end can be miles long. The highlighted route may not be in sight. Remember, this is a navigation app. It tells you where to go. "Proceed to Highlighted Route" is never acceptable and immediately signals that something is wrong with the map.

The unterminated dead end problem is documented in the Wiki and discussed throughout the forums.

xtago wrote:Also you do know that if you move the end of a segment that has a junction the editor automatically removes the junction, you can only keep the junction if you move the junction itself.2


This only happens if you select the segment before you move the end. If you select the end node without selecting the segment, you can move it around without losing the end node.

Fabione72 wrote:Hi,

I've got a boring editing problem.

I noticed a map error while driving on a road, and I'd like to fix it.

When I enter into the editing screen, I verified that, even if the whole road area is available for editing (that's very close to my last drives), the system says I'm not enable to edit it...

I checked the tutorial, I should be able to do it...

any suggestion? is that my problem or some kind of bug?

I'm using Chrome 22.0.1229.94 m

Ciao


Is the segment you're trying to edit locked by a higher level user? If you're trying to edit a major highway or complicated junction, it's common practice to lock these at a high level to prevent inexperienced editors from making changes.

Either way, you may want to post a permalink in the update requests forum along with the general location and a brief description and someone can try to help you out.

Because they don't want the extra Illinoise.

Yes, there's a couple if extra mouse clicks, but the Ctrl-A negates any other inconveniences.

I still like the tools better on the right hand side (which is how it was for the majority of the time in this beta).

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.

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.


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


This happened to me several times a few nights ago. I assumed it was some kind of server issue. No problem with it today. If you're running any Chrome scripts, disable them and see if the problem goes away.

This is a Firefox bug. Use Chrome.

If you're having loading issues on the NA server, try resetting your Cable/DSL modem. There hasn't been any type of editor outage this weekend. Not sure about the International server.
