Added double click (to shortcuts, even if its not technically speaking a keyb-shortcut). Kill me if it's not goodlooking enough an edit ;)

I noticed UR Comments and wondered how to view / add to them. Or is that feature only available to Level 5/ 6 Editors?

I tried to search the Wiki & Forums, but "comment" is a very common word, especially en francais.

I'm happy to present the beginning framework of the new map editor (WME) manual in the wiki. I have written several new pages, building on the layout of some of the existing Cartouche pages, but rewriting from scratch and including all new screenshots.

The head/top page at the moment is http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Waze_Map_Editor and there are already several branches from there, such as in the Editing Manual section. There are also several links to pages which have not been re-written or discarded as a link due to no longer be relevant, so there is much work still to do.

Any feedback, go ahead and leave it. But this is a wiki, so it belongs to the community. I'm just kickstarting it.

I did this because it took me much longer than it should have to find a link to best practices for parking lots. I think this will help a LOT. Having a link to it on the sidebar would be even better.

I took a look at the changes and they should help. Thanks for jumping in.

Also note we have a forum where you can also make requests and note changes to the Wiki so more people can see where the Wiki is getting improved. viewforum.php?f=276

Is there a designated location to discuss proposed changes to the Editing Manual? In most Wikis it's on the "Discussion" page, but that appears empty. I don't want to just start changing things on my own, plus I don't meet the "100 forum posts" minimum for wiki editing.

Good work. I've done lots of technical editing and instruction manual writing in my job, so I applied my experience to try to simplify and clarify your words. I hope you approve.

Waze Map Editor (WME) manual in the Wiki

The problem is that the search function really sucks and often, it's hard to find a link to some pages from pages that the new users are likely to be reading.

After they're done reworking all the pages, someone needs to work on a good table of contents that is well organized. And maybe a few "related topics" links for the bottom of each wiki page.
