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 keep the screen at maximum of Zoom4 and centered and THEN create your PL!
===== '''Layer Data''' =====
Active editors may click on dozens of PL's during a typical editing session in WME. Having to constantly reset layers in WME to your personal preferences is not only a waste of productive editing time, it simply gets frustrating after a while.
the default WME 'blue' colored PL icon, by adding multiple 'red' colored icons, used to create various types of PL's. Simply hover your mouse over each red icon, and a brief description of what type of PL will be created appears.
The PL icon located farthest to the right, is the PL icon used most commonly by editors.

Toolbox also offers the ability to ''toggle'' the excess data '''on or off''' from the default PL, by simply pressing the 'Shift' key. The toolbox PL [excluding the layers data ] looks like this:
Waze has recently altered the data built into PLs, and the current version of Toolbox does not fix those issues.
