  14. Left pane (2.2) - me tab needs to be moved from the left pane
  15. Left pane (2.2) - some scripts will add a tab here
    1. 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.
  16. Left pane (2.2) - missing explanation of feed tab?
    1. See user space [Insert user space link]
  17. No object selected (2.2.2) - needs to be updated to reflect new changes
    1. When no objects are selected on the map, the Tabs Area displays user information based on which tab is selected. 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. The tabs available are the feed tab, the drives tab, the area tab, the settings tab, and any tabs created by scripts.
  18. No object selected (2.2.2) - needs new image
  19. Me tab (2.2.3) - Move me tab, see #4

  21. Camera selected (2.2.8) - needs new image

Me tab

!!!Update Image!!! Wazer-with-premission.pngPermission levels.png

The Me tab displays your map editing permission level and current points for the server on which you are editing (North America or World).

A Wazer with a hard hat displays if you have editing permissions. To the right of that icon will be information with your editing rank and current amount of points and edits.

Hovering over the 'i' bubble will allow a short information box to appear telling you about your editing permission levels (i.e. Level 2 can edit two miles around drives).

Draw places menu

WME placemenu 2018.png
Hover over this button to show place categories. Hover over the place category you want, then choose the point Wme placepoint 2018.png or area Wme placearea 2018.png button to add the place. Use the left pane to change information about the place. For an area place, use geometry nodes of the place to change its shape. For an area place or a point place, set the Entry-Exit Point using the menu. Wme entry-exit point 2018.png

NOTE: At this point in time we can only set one Entry Point for a given place. A future update may allow more than one Entry Point to be entered.

Draw segments menu

Hover over this button Wme roadsmenu 2018.png to choose between road types:
