The Live Users layer will display other map editors with the icon above. Editors' locations are shown in real-time.
=====Road Closures=====
<div style="float:left; margin-right: 1ex; margin-bottom: 1ex;">[[File:Wme-closure-2018.PNG]] [[File:Wme-closure-2way-2018.PNG ]][[File:Closure_Gray_TwoWay.png ]]</div>The Road Closures layer displays a closure symbol and direction when a closure has been placed, using either a WME Closure or the client's Report > Closure feature. A red circle indicates a currently active closure. A gray circle indicates either a scheduled, but not currently active, WME closure or an app-submitted closure. Black arrows show the closure direction(s).
At the left side of the window, below your username, is an area which is both informational and functional. Different tabs or single panes of information are displayed in this area based on whether an object is selected, the type of object and how many, which enable you to view and edit details of objects.
====Server shortcut and snapshot====
Below this information is a graphic inviting you to view the introductory editing videos provided by the Waze team.
=====Drives Tab=====
<!-- Copied from FAQ; consider creating a transcludable subpage for both locations -->Drives are journeys or routes that you have driven with the Waze client running. While you drive, Waze monitors your journey (recording details like location, time, speed) and transfers this information to the [[Servers]]. This data is used to validate the existing map (roads, turns, directions) and to learn average journey times. Other Waze users and [[Area Manager]]s can also view the anonymous GPS tracks of many users when editing the map in the [[Waze Map Editor]]. This helps with map accuracy.
Clicking on one of the five visible entries will center the map along that route and will zoom out to try and fit your entire route on the screen. Routes over about 20 miles / 30 kilometers will usually not fit on the map display all at once due to scale limitations. Use the mouse or arrow keys to pan around on the map. Parts of the route that display in red are not currently paved roads. Consider [[Map_Editor_Interface_and_Controls#Zoom_Control|zooming]] into that area to determine if a road should be added.
<!-- Copied from FAQ; consider creating a transcludable subpage for both locations -->Drives are typically processed and available for viewing in the Waze Map Editor within an hour of completing the drive. For most short drives such as commutes between home and work (under about 35 miles / 50 kilometers), you will likely find them in the editor in under 15 minutes. If the servers are bogged down, or if your drive is significantly longer (over 100 miles / 150 kilometers), these drives may take up to a week to appear. If you don't see your drive after seven (7) days, open a ticket from the [[Support]] page, Quick Help box. Use the Email link and fill out the form and submit.
=====Areas Tab=====
This shows the entire [[editable area]] -- the area in which you can perform edits. Click on your editable area. The view will be centered on the editable area. If your editable area is spread out, in several sections, it may be centered between areas you can edit.
====={{anchor|Settings_tab|Imperial|Metric}}Settings Tab=====
[[File:Just tabs Wme-settings-tab-2018.pngPNG|thumbnail|329px]]<small>This feature was added {{As of|January 2015|lc=y}}</small><br/>
To access user-preference settings in WME, click the "Settings" tab in the left pane. Options include:
* '''Draw new roads as two-way''' - determines whether any new road segments you draw start as two-way or one-way
