Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Am I alone in finding Potlatch 2 overly keen to save my changes whilst I'm editing? I suspect that this causes many novice users to save unintended (& incorrect) changes to OSM.

Whilst I understand the desire not to lose my intended changes whilst I'm editing (why would they disappear?), it does seem overly difficult to abandon any changes made without saving them! (I do realise that selecting a way and pressing Cancel abandons changes to that particular item) My preferred method is to exit Potlatch (eg select View in OSM) and then re-enter Potlatch but on my slow PC, this is somewhat tedious.

regards Dave

Having (now) read the FAQ, I realise that this is not an appropriate topic for a question & should be raised in the forum. Apologies.
