Delete the single selected object (segment, junction, landmark). To delete multiple objects, you must click the trash can icon and confirm the multiple delete.

D

Delete a geometry node from a road segment while hovering the cursor over it during road geometry editing

E

When one or more segments are selected, activates Edit mode (shortcut for clicking the Edit button)

H

When a segment is selected, activates House Number mode (shortcut for clicking the Edit House Numbers button)

M

Toggle multi-select mode. Default behavior is that to select multiple segments, you must use the modifier key to multi-select. When toggled active, multi-select mode lets you select multiple segments without using the modifier key.

R

Toggle segment direction between 1-way (A->B), 1-way (B->A), and 2-way while updating road details. See road direction for more information.

Ctrl +

Increase elevation of selected segments (if all elevations are the same)

or ⌘ Cmd +
Ctrl +

Decrease elevation of selected segments (if all elevations are the same)

or ⌘ Cmd +
A

Toggle connection arrows between transparent or opaque so you can see beneath them and click items under them. Often times editors will hit the A key by mistake and then wonder why turn arrows cannot be selected. Some editors use this as their default setting to avoid making Unwanted changes to turns by mistake and deactivate only when they want to restrict/allow turns.

Q

Disable all connections for the selected junction which makes the turn arrows all red for that selected junction

S

Toggles separation of connection arrows so they do not overlap to ease clicking on either

W

Allow all connections for the selected junction which makes the turn arrows all green for that selected junction. Note that this key will only enable all turns that had not previously been automatically enabled by the Waze routing server, called soft allowed turns. The soft allowed turns have a higher penalty than turns enabled by the editor. Therefore since soft and editor allowed turns have the same color green, if it is known that all turns are enabled at a particular intersection, it is better to first force all turns to disabled with the Q key and then press the W key to force them all to editor enabled.
