The ramp highlight is useful for determining whether some ramp segments are perhaps unnecessarily named. I could see it being desirable to be able to turn the no-name highlight off for ramp segments temporarily, but having it off for ramps and on for at-grade connectors (not something you can program around) seems like it'd be an inconsistent experience.

Cannot we achieve that using toolbox's sort option?

Which do you mean? Removing names from parking lot roads is easy to achieve with Toolbox, yes, so the separate highlight for named parking lot roads isn't necessary. With ramps, it's specific ramps that do and don't need names, so you need the visual.

The benefit of not highlighting parking lot roads is removing clutter, which doesn't affect and isn't affected by Toolbox.

Private roads do often have names, though.

Three questions:

1) Can I get some details on "Turn Warnings for Selected Nodes*"? I'd like an explanation of how it works, why it has an asterisk, and how it compares to the similar functionality of the Toolbox.

2) Why is there an asterisk on the Unterminated Roads option?

3) Could we get an option to have "no name highlighting" only apply to specific road types? It is typical for parking lot roads, private roads, and often ramps and service roads to not have a name, and the highlighting only makes it busy.

I wonder how feasible it would be to be able to highlight two different types of roads simultaneously? They could both be purple, for my usual needs (though different colors would be a bonus :) )

Thanks again for this indispensable script! (Just discovered I never actually clicked Thanks on the first post! :oops: )

With regards to the AM-only advanced options - specifically, the filter by editor option...is it possible to have that option available to everyone to review only their own work? I, like I'm sure most editors, made stupid overenthusiastic n00b mistakes that I'd like to clean up, and having the ability to highlight all my work would certainly make that faster.

Just a thought.

if you are already using Toolbox, use the list tool to sort segments by country

You need to install Tampermonkey, then the Highlighter City. It is not fully packaged like the standard highlighter and the current Chrome executes it only through Tampermonkey - which is a minor nuisance for me.

Best regards,

Edit: If you need an area to see/test what I mean here you go: Zoom=0 east of Zürich (Switzerland). You see lots of forest landmarks and some of them seem to be allocated to Germany. That's why you'll find yourself in the chat for Germany instead of Switzerland. Landmarks are selectable even in Zoom=0.

Here is a permalink with such a landmark selected: Landmark with Country Germany


Problem in my case isn't so much with chat as with drawing new roads. As they also get wrong country. And as it is now - I had today investigate this and spend my time checking every road segment, every landmark to find these - which have incorrect country. So as said before, feature "filter road/landmark by country" could be VERY useful.
