Using iD OpenStreatMap editor. Three tools at the top: Point, Line, Area. Some people have used the Line tool to designate a house, and it shows up as a little square road.

Which line tool are you refering to? Within which editor?

Buildings are normally drawn using lines. So, I'm not sure what you mean exactly.

Also, some tasks only require residential areas to be outlined without the need to trace all buildings.

How can we help people use the right tool?

I am doing loads of corrections.
