On the map at there is part of a large parcel of land. It's labeled "Port Orange City Forest". (There are other pieces of land with the same name that are south of I-4. I'm only concerned about the one on the north side.)

According to the Volusia County Property Appraiser, this land isn't owned by the City of Port Orange but by the City of Daytona Beach. It is the site of the First Step Homeless Shelter (the construction area on US-92 on the north side). The land has no special designation. According to the Volusia County Property Appraiser, the Short Parcel ID is 610100000020.

The issue is that I'd like to delete the border that identifies it as Port Orange City Forest. But when I try to, I get an error message that I can't delete it because not enough of the feature is currently visible. But if I scroll out then I can't edit anything because I'm scrolled out too far.

So. How am I supposed to delete this sucker. I don't think it's worth trying to see if I can connect my laptop to the television.

Hackish solution remove nodes from the whole thing till it is small enough that you can delete it (unjoin the nodes first from any other ways pls), or non-hackish solution: use essentially any other editor that supports geometry edits.

Pleas note that the object you are planning to delete belongs to a relation (multipolygon) and describes the outline of a protected area. I'm not familiar with the laws in your region but it might totally possible that a patch of land owned by the City of Daytona Beach still belongs to a protected area with the name of Port Orange City Forest.

So before just deleting the object you should make sure the protected area is actually wrong or has been changed. Maybe the outline needs to be changed by moving some nodes rather then the whole outline deleted.

Actually I work for the City of Daytona Beach. There are no protections on that land. In fact, we've contracted with a paving company to dig up as much sand and topsoil as they're willing to pay for.

I'm not saying I agree with this decision, just that it was made and is happening.
