#1251 closed defect (wontfix)

Merkaartor allows to enter the same tagkey multiple times in the properties dock

While theoretically legal, it should be prevented for several reasons

  • our internal data model doesn't accept this construct and will silently throw away one value
  • most other tools also don't provide for this
  • it will probably not be possible anymore with 0.6 api anyway

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Only the last value for a key is kept. The next time the properties are shown, only the real value is displayed.

I don't think creating a complicated GUI construct to inform the user of this fact is usefull.
95% of the time, he anyway wants to set this value whatever was in before.

It's actually a feature that the user do not have to search for the key in the list ;-)
