Left Pane with segment(s) selected
The area above the tabs will show how many segments are selected. The example graphic to the right shows what the Tabs Area looks like when multiple segments are selected and the General tab is in "Edit mode."
Details on these tab settings can be found under Road Properties
The General tab displays the segment name and alternate names details at the top. Just below that information is an Edit button. More info on that below. On this tab, you can modify the road type, toll road checkbox, direction, elevation, and lock. Further down past a separator line is more general details about the segment(s) which is/are selected.
Segment Edit Detail
When you click on the Edit button, or tap shortcut key 'e', the General tab changes, displaying more detail information and allows you to make changes to the country, state (US only), city and segment name. Next is where you can add or remove any alternate street name information. An alternate name, technically referred to as a "linked street," is used to capture detail such as the state or US route name of a street as it goes through an urban area where it is commonly referred to with a local name. The local name would be put into the primary name field, but the highway name can be entered as an alternate name. An alternate name street must also have the same city as the primary segment.
Be sure to review the naming convention used in your area before changing names.
If you run into an extreme case where you need to rename the city name on a large number of streets. Review the article Smudged city. The end of the article includes a link to a special form to converting a mass number of segments using the help of Waze staff in the database.
Select Entire Street
When you click the button titled "Select Entire Street," or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+a the editor will select all segments connected to the current segment with the same name, city, state, country information. It will also select some segments off the current visible area.
Edit House Numbers
When you click the button titled Edit House Numbers, or use the keyboard shortcut 'h', WME enters the House Number editing interface.
- The Edit House Numbers button appears when there is only one segment selected.
- The Edit House Numbers button isn't available to click when there are changes which need to be saved. The message, "Save your changes to edit house numbers" appears below the button.
When you click the button titled Add restrictions, or use the keyboard shortcut 't', WME enters the Scheduled Restrictions editing interface
- The Add restrictions button appears when there is one or more segments selected.
- If there are restrictions which already exist on any selected segment, the button name changes to Edit restrictions.
