===Map Editor Tool Bar===
[[File:wme_top_toolbarWME Top Bar 2018.png|700px]] At the top of the Waze Map Editor you will see the main toolbar. It includes the primary control buttons for the editor.====Map Edit Mode====The furthest left drop down is for Map Edit Mode. This can be set as Map Editor or Event Mode.

At the top of the Waze Map Editor you will see the main tool bar. It includes the primary control buttons for the editor.
====Search box====

In the wide search box, you can enter an address, city, state, country, landmark, point of interest, or a combination of those. After hitting Enter or clicking the Find button, you will either be taken to the only result or be given a list of matches from which to select.
For example, entering "757 Mohawk St, Columbus, OH" (''image on the left'') will center the map and drop a search marker directly on that address.
[[File:wme31 main st newyork search resultsWME NewYork Search 2018.jpgpng|right]]
However, searching for "main st, new york" (''image on the right'') is less specific and therefore, will give you a list of matches from which to select.
