Editor becomes unable to select objects

Reported by: StellanL Owned by: potlatch-dev@…

Sometimes when shift-clicking a way (to add a node) Potlatch suddenly stops being able to select objects. All other functions remain operational. Only way I have found to clear this condition is to save, exit and reenter editor.

I'm having the same problem. shift-click normally works fine, but sometimes causes this bug. Whatever was selected at the time seem to remain selected (though un-highlighted in the main map window) and it's then impossible to change the selection by clicking in the window.

After many tries, I've finally found out how to reproduce the problem. Click somewhere empty on the map (so you start drawing a way), hit delete to cancel the drawing. Then hover over a way so it is highlighted, hold down shift and click on the way two times. Now the editor is borked.

It's a really annoying bug. Hope you can get it fixed soon. :)

Excellent - thank you for the steps to reproduce. It was a problem when deleting a single node in a way with Delete (I always use Escape so hadn't noticed :) ). Fixed in the latest svn build, not deployed yet. There are still a few edge cases where something similar might occur but hopefully much rarer.
