I already know how to show a single GPX recorded track in iD editor.

Either by loading the file in the editor "map data" section under custom map data, or by clicking "edit" on a track I uploaded into my account.

The problem is I can only do it for one GPX track at a time. FLASH based Potlatch could display several tracks simultaneously, allowing me to select which ones to display.

How can I do this in iD editor, explicitely loading and showing multiple user selected GPX tracks? Joining tracks with external program prior to upload is not a viable answer.

Thank you.

I think the answer is "you can't". See the links from here.

alt text I just tried iD and it worked for me. Backgrounds: GPX traces. If this isn't quite what you wanted i think GPS prune will join several traces into one.

Yes - that does seem to be working again. There was a period when public traces either weren't appearing or were but only arratically, but here (turn the GPX layer on) there's exactly the trace that was walked just after Christmas.
