Description

Copied from http://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/595 (exchange JOSM with Merkaartor):

19:11:18 crschmidt * RichardF: http://openlayers.org/dev/examples/modify-feature.html
19:11:20 crschmidt * draw a polygon
19:11:29 crschmidt * then click 'modify feature'
19:11:40 crschmidt * you'll see that on each side, there are extra, draggable points

I would love to see that in JOSM. I guess especially the AND and TIGER fixup guys would give all sorts of gratitude :)

If that link doesn't work: imagine you have a way like the following

*-----+------*------+------*

where the * are real nodes, it draws the + as selection points that you can drag, and when you release the mouse, it becomes a real new node with two new + on either side of it, ready for the next drag.

For what it's worth, JOSM got this feature a while ago, and users seem to love it.

I read some nice comments about it on the dev list.

While it seems much work just to avoid pressing CTRL-N and clicking, it is worth considering.
