I'm trying to update my proposal for the JOSM UI based on the feedback.
However, I'm having trouble understanding some of the things people have
- Someone has added various actions related to GPX track points to the
"possible actions list". However, as I understand it, GPX track points
are just points in a particular layer - i.e. they would be manipulated
in all ways the same as nodes, when that layer is the current layer. Is
this true? If not, what have I missed?
- Someone has added "Delete segment". I thought segments were no longer
part of the data model?
- Someone has added "Split ways with duplicating nodes at identical
positions (yielding not connected ways)". I'm not quite sure what that
means, but I thought that was how splitting a way would work. What other
options are there?
It has been suggested that the same mouse button could be used for
selection and panning; the map is panned if you click and drag on an
area with no nodes or ways. However, it seems to me that this would have
problems when you are zoomed out, because there would be no area of the
map to grab hold of, because there are nodes everywhere. What do people
