My Mac has OS 11.7.3 and cannot be updated beyond that. Safari is version 16.3. When I attempt to click Edit with Remote Control (...), I see the message, Editing failed - make sure JOSM or Merkaartor is loaded and the remote control option is enabled. I wish to create multipolygons but know this is required. What do I need to do in order to successfully be able to edit using this method?

Sincerely,

Andrew

On the Mac remote control can be made to work with Firefox. On Safari it broke a long time ago.

Remote control doesn't work with Safari unfortunately. You can open a desktop editor (such as JOSM, Merkaartor or Potlatch 3) by downloading it and running it as a standalone app.

You can however create multipolygons just fine using iD, the default in-browser editor on openstreetmap.org - you don't need to run a different editor for that.
