About this image

The area above the tabs will show how many segments are selected, and a link to "Select Entire Street". The example graphic to the right shows what the Tabs Area looks like when multiple segments are selected.

Select Entire Street

When you click the link "Select Entire Street," or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+A the editor will select all segments connected to the current segment with the same primary name, city, state, and country information. It will also select some segments outside the current visible area. The "Select Entire Street" link and the multiple segment ID numbers are highlighted in yellow in the image to the right.

Address Box

When you click on the Pencil button, or tap shortcut key E, the address box displays 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," can be used for address searches, while primary name is used in navigation instructions.

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 for converting a mass number of segments using the help of Waze staff in the database.

General Tab

On this tab, you can modify the road type, direction, speed limits, elevation, lock, and special properties "toll road" and "tunnel". Further down past a separator line are more general details about the segment(s) which is/are selected.

Details on these tab settings can be found under Road Properties

Add Restrictions

Edit House Numbers
