Re: [Script] UROverview Plus v3.18 (20140827)

3.18 introduces the following changes/updates:

  • Added custom markers for [NOTE]-tagged URs.
  • Re-opened map problems are now marked as such, and can be filtered.
  • Places/landmarks/venues/whatever you call them can now be filtered by category.
  • Events which occurred yesterday but less than 24 hours ago are now listed in their popup as having happened 1 day ago, rather than today...
  • Optimised filtering code to minimise unnecessary operations.

The requests from bz2012 for popups on restricted turns and an open in new window link are being looked into, though at present I can't give any guarantees either of them will appear.

To be quite honest, anyone serious enough about editing to want to use these keywords whilst on the move really ought to be using a phone keyboard that allows for stuff like this to be inserted from a list of predefined text on entry of a shortcode.

On my Android phones I've been using the "Auto Text Keyboard Lite" app (formerly known as FireKeys Free) which lets me define 10 shortcuts, one of which is defined so that "lft" can be expanded to "Please leave for Twister-UK: " - this could just as easily be defined with "[NOTE] Please leave for Twister-UK: " as the expansion text, without requiring me to type anything extra each time I submit a report. AFAIK, similar functionality exists over in the iOS world.

I just had the time to catch up on this thread. Thank you for the app suggestion. Its downloading as I type this.

Minor request:
Please add the bold function/choice to the pop-up.
Open in new WME tab
Open in new WME window
Open in new livemap tab
Hide for this session


I have one 'window' with lots of tabs to different things that I run all the time.
I like to open a UR in a NEW WINDOW (not a new TAB), so I can open other tabs related to that task and then close them all at the same time when I finish with the UR.
Currently, I need to right click on the 'open in new WME tab' line and select the 'open link in new window' line.

Yeah, it is a very minor annoyance, but I figured it can't hurt to ask. :)

It's already active as [CLOSURE] along with [EVENT], and [CONSTRUCTION].

Correct. It is part of the OS.

This would be amazing. I would like to add possibly making it something more simple, as a lot of these "notes"are submitted in motion. What about just WME or Editor?

Can i ask for one more special icon, to record notes to other editors? To make sure the common word NOTE isn't accidentally used inappropriately, I suggest [WMENote] and some sort of notepad-ish icon, or attention icon (so long as it doesn't look anything like the normal exclamation bubble).
