A Potlatch question!

I'm creating a new area (a forrest) and that area will share about 1/2 of it's points with an existing area (a lake).

Can I use the existing points in some automatic way ("multi select and create path" or something like that) or do I have to click each point manually?

As it is now I manually click each point. This is time consuming and often generate double points when there should actually be just one.

You can do this using the Follow feature in Potlatch 2.

To use this feature to draw the forest:

  1. Start drawing the forest.
  2. Click on one of the nodes on the lake.
  3. Click on the next node on the lake, in the direction that the forest goes.
  4. Press F, and the way will be automatically extended to the next node.
  5. Keep pressing F for as far as the ways share nodes.
  6. Continue drawing the rest of the forest as usual.
