Hello Is there a way to move a segment that contains at least a dot without loosing the straightness?

For example, there is the segment of a bridge with a bench in the middle of it. When there is the need to reposition the bridge by moving its segment on one end, the straight segment will bend in the point where the bench in positioned.

Could you tell us what editor you are using ? AFAIK in JOSM when you move a way, all its nodes move at once.

If the bridge is not a single way, you can select all the parts by Shift-clicking.

Move the bench. Maybe separate the bench from the way. It isn't a situation I have any experience of. I'm not sure how well it will render. Do you have a link to the location? or a jpeg. This bridge has a chapel, once a toll, attached to it. https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/52.32272/-0.07530 does this give you an idea?

Now it is OK, I simply deleted the bench and the stairs, moved the bridge and newly added the bench and the stairs. This is only one example, but I am often confronted with that problem in other situations.

The section is this https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/46.22066/9.03723 It is not fully rendered yet.

Your example is a little bit different, the chapel is not right on the bridge.
