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

Take a situation where multiple ways are connected at a node. I would like to extend one of them (to keep tags, etc), but in the iD Editor, when I click the "Line" button, then the node, I cannot choose which way to extend.

(yes, I can just extend whichever way iD selects, then cut the way and merge the new section with the way I wanted to extend, but that's ugly and time consuming)

In Potlatch 2, I would select the way, then click the end node and extend the line. I'm thinking there must be a way to do this in iD that I've missed?

Found out that a solution will be in the next release: https://github.com/systemed/iD/issues/1721

Here's what it'll do:

  • The line draw tool will always start a new way
  • The way you continue an existing line is by a "Continue" menu item when clicking on a vertex (#560).
  • Disambiguation can be done by selecting a vertex, then a line to continue and using the "Continue" action.
