Using Potlatch 2 I discovered this relation:


I have made a minor edit - removing the relation from the lake, but the main problem is:

The relation has this tag "landuse = scrub" - but it does not display as 'scrub'.
Checking the documentation, I found that the tag should have been "natural = scrub".

A simple tag edit would solve the problem, but as far as I can see, neither Potlatch 2 nor iD can edit the tags of a relation - or can they? - how is it done?

With Potlatch 2, double-click on the relation at the left:

alt text

and then you can edit the relation. Scroll down to get to advanced settings, or look at members:

Thanks - a simple and 'obvious' solution that somehow escaped my imagination.

Feel free to add the pictures (and the rather important info that you have to scroll down the relation view to see "advanced" and "mambers") to the FM :)

@SomeoneElse: thanks, done, FM improved. I do not need to scroll down to see the links (they are halfway visible). I'll save the effort of uploading the images. Someone wanting to edit relations will not have a problem to find the links. The links are even the same as for non-relations.

Thanks for the primer-link - I realize I should have found and read this :-)
