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 Modeedit mode====
The furthest left drop down is for Map Edit Mode. This can be set as Map Editor or Event Mode. The Map Editor is where you'll spend most of your time. The event mode is explained further later on but is used for specific events such as parades.

<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).
===Left Panepane===
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.
When no objects are selected on the map, the Tabs Area displays user information. The top section greets you by name and is always visible regardless of what is showing or displayed on the map. Map Problems and Update Requests are not considered map objects, so the tabs below your name will display when a Map Problem or Update Request is selected.
=====Me Tabtab=====
=====Drives Tabtab=====
<!-- 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.
=====Areas Tabtab=====
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 Tabtab=====
[[File:Wme-settings-tab-2018.PNG|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:
</imagemap>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 Streetentire street=====
[[file:select entire street 2018.png|right]]When you click the link "Select Entire Street," or use the keyboard shortcut {{key press|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 in the images to the right.
=====Address Boxbox=====
When you click on the Pencil button, or tap shortcut key {{key press|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.
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 Tabtab=====
On this tab, you can modify the road type, direction, speed limits, elevation, lock, and special properties including "unpaved" 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 [[Creating and editing road segments#Road Properties|Road Properties]]
======Add Restrictionsrestrictions======
When you click the button titled '''Add restrictions''', or use the keyboard shortcut {{key press|T}}, WME enters the [[Scheduled Restrictions]] editing interface
======Edit House Numbershouse numbers======
When you click the button titled '''Edit House Numbers''', or use the keyboard shortcut {{key press|H}}, WME enters the [[House Numbers in WME|House Number editing interface]].
*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.
=====Closure Tabtab=====
On this tab, senior editors can enable closures in real time. For more information, read the [[Closures#WME_closure_feature|WME Closure Feature]] page.
For the Waze application to be as useful as possible to drivers, it is important to ensure all fields of information are fully and properly completed.{{clear}}
===Map Display Areadisplay area===
All the layers currently selected for display show up in the map display area. The map display areas takes up the majority of the browser window. Any object displayed is selectable and editable, depending on your editing rights in the area you are viewing. Select a street and change its geometry. Select a landmark and change its name. Add a road where one should be, or delete a road which should no longer appear.
