Left button should drag map!! Please!!
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||team|
There is a discrepancy between JOSM's dragging action and *every other mapping application in the world*. In JOSM we must right-click and drag to move the map around. *Everyone else* uses the left button.
I find it very difficult to switch between the OSM Mapnik view on the OSM web pages and JOSM. It's utterly frustrating.
Please consider making the functions for selecting and dragging configurable. I wouldn't ask for these functions to be changed for everyone, but please make a configuration setting where I can select 'Left button drags map'. Please. I have been using JOSM for 6 months and it's fabulous *but* this L&R button swap is driving me crazy.
In my opinion the left button click should do the same as it currently does. A left button drag should move the map (it currently draws a rubberbanding selection box). A left button drag with the shift key should do the rubberbanding selection. A right click should bring up a context menu. Again, this should be configurable, especially not to annoy current users who are used to, or even like, the current operation.
