I am trying to add a new node to an existing way (footbridge) using Potlatch. I have followed the instructions: select the way, then shift+click where I want to add the node. No matter how many times I try, this doesn't work. I've even tried creating a new way and then adding a node, with no luck (I haven't saved any of this, of course!). I've tried in both Potlatch 1.4 and the beta of Potlatch 2. I'm on a Mac and have tried with both Camino 2.1a1pre and Safari 5.0.2. My Flash plugin is at version 10.1.53.64. Has anyone else run into this problem? Any suggestions? Any further useful information I can provide?

Thanks,
Jolin

It works for me on Safari 5.0 on a Mac and exactly the same version of Flash - that's what I use to develop and test Potlatch, in fact. Do you have any other weird plugins installed?

Works for me with e.g. Chromium under WinXP, so maybe this is a Mac specific problem.

Maybe you can find some Apple users in the OSM wiki and ask them whether they can reproduce this.

If so, you can open a new bug ticket at trac.openstreetmap.org for the component "Potlatch".

Hmm, it's now working for me (I haven't changed anything, just tried again). Very strange, as before posting here I did try quitting and reloading my browser amongst various other things. So I'm not sure why a day ago it didn't work and now it does. In any case, many thanks for the replies and sorry for any wasted time.
