I am new here and fixing coastlines in Finland. There is some lakes where coastline flipping peculiarly. We have very fragmented coastlines with hunders of smaller island in it.

Is there any easy fix for this? Thanks for helping newbie!

Coastlines should always be drawn so that the land is on the left according to the order of the ways.

There is a map that shows coastline errors here (currently showing a potential error in Sweden, but not Finland).

Lakes are drawn with the same direction convention, but different tags.

What you show in your image looks like it could be a rendering issue for the editor, not necessarily an issue in the data itself. Is this a multipolygon that isn't fully loaded?
