I just got an android and loaded Vespucci. I've downloaded an area and added a node that I want to tag as a shop. I'm in the tagging editor and have created tags. I cannot figure out how to exit the editor. The only options on the bottom of the screen are trash,copy,cut and help.

To exit the tag editor just click on the back button in the top left corner:

back button

I agree that this is not very obvious and I think I stumbled over the same thing in the past.

Great answer. I never would have recognized that as a back button. There was nothing in the edit tutorial that said press the back button. Works great,saved me a lot of frustration. I like the extent of the features in the app.

It's the standard android way of returning to the "main" part of an application, so not really particularly special or non-obvious (it is so standard that there is no provision for changing the button in the Android API).

PS: naturally the simplest way of finding this out would have been simply to use the online help built in to Vespucci.
