Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

First of all, thank you for the release of the standalone Potlatch 3 program after the phasing out of the Flash based Potlatch 2.

However, when I start from the web based OSM.org, Potlatch 3 cannot be found for Edit with Remote Control (JOSM, Potlatch, Merkatoor).

Also, the background SPW(allonie) imageries do not load.

The assumption is (just as for all other desktop editors) that you have already started the app.

P3 specific issues should go to the P3 repository https://github.com/systemed/potlatch3/issues

Also worth noting that, in case you're using Safari, it doesn't currently support Remote Control (on any editor).

It works for me. I downloaded it from a link here https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Richard/diary/395259 when you run it you get a world map.One option is to zoom all the way in.. which isn't so convenient. A better solution is zoom into the map as we did with Potlatch2 then reduce this window to a half screen. Start Potlatch3 app and reduce that window to the other half of the screen. Go back to the zommed window and click on the Remote edit box. The Potlatch3 window will then be in edit mode, change it to full screen and it is just like using Potlatch2. See JPEG
