Issues adding points in Potlatch 2 -- Correction of similar bug #

Description

Hello bug team,

I've been having some weird issues when I try to edit. I'm unable to edit ways in Potlatch 2. It seems to be similar to the problems reported by 4274 on March 4. For example, when I try to select a way, it lights up, but I am unable to add points. Also, after I do try to add a point, all ways no longer light up when I try to select them. In addition, when I first open OSM and click on "Edit," not all of the street data loads. Sometimes the name of a residential street is displayed, but the white line for the street is missing. Also, where there is a turning circle, sometimes only the dot for the turning circle is visible, but the white line for the short street leading to it is not visible. I have tried to edit on two different computers and have gotten the same result. On one computer I recently installed a new version of Flash, but I'm not sure if the Flash update has been installed on the other computer. I use Firefox. This happened since the update to the interface that changed the look of the first page. Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone know what's going on? Thanks for your help.

Best,

Charlotte Wolter

Could you confirm if this is still the case, and if so, provide a URL (i.e. containing lat/long of your editing location) where it occurs?

The problem seems to happen everywhere, but he last place I have edited is around Twin Lakes, New Mexico (http://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?lat=35.7091&lon=-108.7659&zoom=14), especially Bass Lake Road.

I get that behaviour when Flash is running low on resources. Are any of the POI icons missing as well? Does restarting the whole browser help?

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by techlady

3/8 morning I also have noticed another distinction in the problems I am having. I now can add new ways (and the points to create them), but I cannot add a point to an existing way. This is true for all kinds of ways, including railroads.

Could you confirm what Flash Player version you're using?

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html will tell you (look for the long number by the red arrow, part of step 2).

Closing as no further reports or response to request for FP version. Strongly suspect it was an old version of FP involved.

I'm seeing exactly the same issue - I can't shift-click to add nodes to existing ways, but can add new ways and move nodes fine. I've seen this for a few weeks, i.e. since around the time of the front page redesign. I am using Chrome on a Mac and the latest version of FP. I've been getting around it by deleting ways and adding new ones in with my desired extra nodes, but this is obviously not ideal!

comment:8 Changed 7 years ago by Richard

In my experience, failing shift-click is usually a result of Flash throwing an exception somewhere. Would you be able to have a try with the Debug Player (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Potlatch_2/Using_Flash_Debug_Player) and see if it reports anything?

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by Oliver O'Brien

I'm afraid that the log file isn't logging anything when I do the Shift-click action. The following possibly relevant messages appeared when I first loaded it up however:

warning: unable to bind to property 'selected' on class 'net.systemeD.potlatch2.collections::Stylesheets' warning: unable to bind to property 'theMap' on class 'potlatch2' warning: unable to bind to property 'selected' on class 'net.systemeD.potlatch2.collections::Imagery'

comment:10 Changed 7 years ago by Richard

Hm, curious. Thanks for trying: no, the binding warnings won't make any difference. I would have expected to see an actual error but evidently not. I've not had any issues with Safari or Opera on OS X: just downloading Chrome now.

Is there any specific location in OSM where this happens, or is it everywhere?

comment:11 Changed 7 years ago by Richard

Works fine for me with the same setup as you - same Chrome version, same OS, same Flash version. Odd.

comment:12 Changed 7 years ago by Oliver O'Brien

Just tried in Firefox and see the same issue. Appears to happen anywhere on the map. If I Shift-click on the yellow line of a selected way (red dots, with yellow lines between them) then the red dots just flash off and on again. Exactly the same response as a normal click. Also can't Shift-click to select multiple items (for merging).

comment:13 Changed 7 years ago by Richard

Sounding much more like a Flash issue than a P2 one. Clutching at straws a bit here, but...

What keyboard layout are you using?

Have you tried removing the surrounding HTML (press "M" to maximise) in case any of that is for some bizarre reason overflowing the SWF area?

comment:14 Changed 7 years ago by Oliver O'Brien

Keyboard is standard (British) layout. No difference after maximising. I'll see if I can replicate on other machines.
