Note: this has been mostly superseded by the simpler creation modes provided in Simple mode.

After a long press on the map on the main screen you will enter the "New" mode (also see Introduction). This is the main way to add new nodes, ways and OSM Notes in Vespucci. At the place where you touched the screen you will see a cross marker.

You can now do one of three things:

Both the last node and the complete way can be moved without leaving "New" mode.

Further actions

Address Add address tags

Adds a node at the current location and adds address tags with prediction. If the node is part of a building way it will further add "entrance=yes" if not present.

Preset Add preset

Create the current new object, launch the property editor and immediately display the preset tab. In multi-pane mode this will simply start the property editor.

Bug Add a OpenStreetMap Note

Create an OpenStreetMap Note at the point.

Split Split

If the marked location is on a way: create a new way node at the position and split the way.

Append Create path

Start the path/way creation mode, just as if you had touched the screen again.

Paste Paste

Copy the object in internal copy and paste buffer to the current position. If the object was originally cut this has the same effect as if you moved the object to the new position and the buffer will be empty after the operation.

GPS New node at GPS pos.

This will create a node at the current GPS position and add elevation tags to it. Note it doesn't matter where on the screen you originally touched, the node will be created at the GPS location.
