Vespucci 0.9.6 Highlights#


Multi-Select mode, currently supports#

  • Deleting
  • Moving
  • Creating a relation from the selected elements
  • Tag editing on multiple objects
  • Merging multiple ways

Multi-select mode can be entered either by double-tapping an element (or a 2nd element if one is already selected) or via a menu item. The mode can be exited by double-tapping an empty area or by the usual other ways of exiting an action mode.

Restyled tag editing with split pane layout on tablets.#

  • Selective tag copy, cut and paste. Tag copy and paste copy to the system clipboard a multi-line textual representation. Paste from clipboard will either set tag values from a multi-line text clip (for example from a OCR app) or use the clip if in the same textual representation to create key-value tupels.

  • Highlight elements of selected relations in a different color than selected elements
  • Allow adding of relations to relations directly
