#3748 closed enhancement (invalid)

Cannot edit endnode of a way

Reported by: Tirkon Owned by: potlatch-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: Cc:


If I click an endnode of a way, Potlatch wants me to prolong the way. It is not possible to add or edit tags of this endnode.

You are right, Richard. But this automatic prolonging feature is very confusing if another way (the same street) goes on at this node. Then you have different behaviour within an ongoing street depending if i.e. the maxspeed changes at the node or not. Keeping in mind, that Potlatch is in particular for beginners, it would be much better, to offer the automatic prolonging feature only then, if there is only one way ending at this node. As soon as two or more ways are ending at the same node, the automatic prolonging feature should not be offered.

It's a UI decision with nothing obvious to swing it either way. It's been the same since the very first version of Potlatch 1. I'm not ruling out changing it but trac is not the place for a discussion.

O.K. Thank you. Where should this be discussed?

Well, in theory, on potlatch-dev (where these trac tickets are echoed anyway). But I'm not sure that going over stuff we're already aware of will make much of a difference: it's always been an issue and lots of posts about it aren't going to make it easier to decide what to do. :)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
