[patch] Faster relation selection with Alt+click and middle-click
|Reported by:||joshdoe||Owned by:||team|
I've been working with relations quite a bit, and it could be easier to select the relation that a given way belongs to (exclusively multipolygons actually). There are a few methods I know of to select such a relation:
- Select the way, right-click on relation in property/membership dialog, then click Select relation
- Select the way, double-click on relation in Relation Toolbox (plugin reltoolbox)
Both of these require moving the mouse and clicking three times; it might not seem like much but it adds up. I propose cycling through relations in addition to ways and nodes, both via Alt+click (my preferred method) and middle-click. I believe this would entail changing NavigatableComponent.getAllNearest(), or creating a modified copy (at least for middle-click, haven't found where Alt+click is handled yet). After cycling through any nearby Ways and Nodes, Relations could be next, based on whether they're parents of the nearby Ways and Nodes.
I think most people wouldn't even notice this change, and it seems like a logical method to select relations to me. Whether to restrict this just to multipolygons or to allow any relation is something I'm not sure about.
