Hard to select way with many nodes

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

Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: usability Cc:


If there are a lot of nodes on a way, it's hard or impossible to select because you end up dragging nodes instead of ways.

One use case where this is a problem is aligning a roundabout with background imagery. To select the way, you may have to zoom in...but if there's no imagery at that level...

Can we repurpose the Alt key to mean "don't select nodes" in unselected mode, and "don't try and form junctions" when drawing ways?

For now, don't forget that when a node is selected, pressing 'W' selects the way it belongs to.

Thanks, I didn't know that. Although it doesn't quite solve this use case, because you can't *drag* with W.
