Producing Useful PLs
==== '''Producing Useful PLs''' ====
===== *Centering Screen & Zoom Level =====
Once you select all your segments you want to include in a PL, one last very important step is to zoom out so you can '''see them''' all on the screen, and then '''center''' your view in WME on those selected segments. Keep in mind tho that anything [[User:Dsfargeg/Road_Types_and_Zoom_Levels|farther out than Zoom4]] will usually fail to produce a useful PL. PLs created when segments are not centered, or in view will also usually fail to produce useful PLs.
So save yourself some grief and remember to keep the screen at maximum of Zoom4 and centered and THEN create your PL!
===== '''Layer Data''' =====
As an editor you might work on * '''Map ProblemsMobile Editors'' [MP's] and  Often editors that are helping with 'unlock'Speed camerasrequests, are accessing WME and the communication platform from a mobile device. They are very limited in what they can do in WME, and the typical smaller screens make doing any editing more challenging in general. They are also using cellular data, rather than 'unlimted'cable/ dsl connections. When requesting assistance from such an editor, a PL created excluding the layer data is especially important. The extra map data is not needed for the unlock, and so you will have those layers turned it only slows the WME page load, before the editor can actually do the unlock. That extra layer info also uses additional data on in WMEtheir cellular plan. Obviously we don't want to be a nuisance to the very people helping us!
