That's what I was referring to.
I'm constantly finding gas stations that were improperly saved on the import.
They appear as a point, but as an area they are a box.
Frequently, they are half a block away from the station... and sometimes the station has already been created by an editor.

That's just how they were imported. The data from the import was just GPS coordinates, and when it was imported all we had were areas (Landmarks). Any gas station you see like that is like that because it has been untouched by an editor (or, if it has been touched by an editor, it hasn't been done properly).

I know that.
I was simply answering Tony's question on how it could be a point and a small square at the same time.
It wasn't... it was the default import that had never been corrected.

So, drag the geometry nodes on the area to make it the shape you want and then save. :-)

Remember, gas stations are supposed to be saved as areas, not points.

Correct.

How can they be set to Point and show a small box? :)
Many editors don't ever bother with the Places layer, and, as you've noticed, a lot of those gas station imports never got set up properly. Don't forget to add the address.

Showing/hiding the Place polygons based on their categories... I'll look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.

That would be extremely useful.
I normally edit with places turned off because the map is so polluted. I would love to edit with only gas stations turned on, because there are a LOT of base-import gas stations remaining that are set to type "point" and only the small box... frequently half a block away from the actual station.

I doubt Waze will get to it soon, but as Places will soon be even more common across the map, I think having filtering will be absolutely necessary. Some way to multi-select will be superb. Perhaps expanding lists with the ability to select sub-items as well as parent.


Quite a while ago, I had suggested the list type view for Toolbox (similar to the street list). It was being considered, but clearly Oyyo hasn't gotten to it.
