Thank you for this script. I am sure that when a few kinks are worked out and some of us are educated in the proper use, it will be very useful!

I am currently trying to figure out how to get it to work and how to use it.

When I activate or deactivate the roads flash briefly with the highlight colors but go back to 'default' immediately.

If I turn off roads and activate/deactivate I get a brief glimpse of the FC'd colored segments.

Am I missing some magic words or arcane gestures?

When active, selected segments disappear except for their end points.
When active, 'shift-r' no longer toggles the roads layer. It must be turned on and off with the cursor.

Actions change when I pick a different 'left bar function' (like I go to 'Me' and go back to FC) or I alt tab to the forum window and then back to WME.
Now it is 'flashing' FC roads and the 'shift-r' is working.
Flashing continues even when I uncheck the FC roads enable box.

[Script] FC Highlights

Postby bz2012 » Fri Jun 06, 2014 11:07 am

As I fight to convert areas from old mapping standard roads to FC mapping standards,
I was wondering how difficult it would be to 'recolor' the roads on the map so that
1) the colors 'match' the US FC maps colors for the equivalent types of WAZE map types.
objective: make the WAZE map, if properly configured, MATCH the FC map. That way, a quick glance at an area should show which segments need to be fixed.

2) optionally add 'grey scale density variations' to the 'white types' so that they are easy to distinguish from each other 'at a glance'.

Not sure if this would be best done as options in Color Highlights or a separate extension.

I installed v0.7.1 without a hitch in Chrome. It's management tab shows up in the left edit panel of WME with the color selection boxes, associated "dash" check boxes and the Change road type labels check box. However, even when I check the Change road type labels option those label boxes never show up. I have clicked the Refresh button on the management tab and have done a browser window refresh. I have closed Chrome and reopened.
Also, no option is showing up in the Layers dialog to select for showing the FC Highlights. Any suggestions?
