Add a "split way" feature

Description

I like to edit in potlatch, but, because there is no "split way" feature, I find myself frequently having to switch to JOSM for the sole purpose of splitting ways at bridges:

  • In potlatch, position nodes at the ends of bridges.
  • Record the IDs of the aforementioned nodes.
  • Click the "view" tab to go back to the slippy map and click "permalink" (since there is no way (that I can find) to get a permalink in potlatch).
  • Open JOSM and use the aforementioned permalink to download the area where the bridge is.
  • Find the nodes, split the way at them, and upload the changes.
  • Back in the browser, open potlatch again, and wait for it to download the data again (including the way that is now split at the bridge).
  • Add the appropriate "bridge" and "layer" tags.

Given this process, creating bridges becomes quite tedious — especially on motorways, where there are lots of bridges. The ability to split ways in potlatch would greatly simplify the creation of bridges.

There is a "split" function in Potlatch - select the node, then click the "scissor" icon at the bottom left (or press X).

Or is that not what you're looking for?
