    6464The first step of actual editing is to [wiki:Help/Action/Draw add a node] or way to the OSM data. You can add standalone nodes or you can add nodes to ways, especially where there is a [Help/Action/Draw#Commonnodeswithanotherway junction between two ways].

    66 To add a node, highlight the "Node" button, either by clicking the [[Image(source:trunk/images/mapmode/node/autonode.png,20,middle,link=)]] button in the left menu bar, or by hitting the "A" key on the keyboard (the button should then be highlighted). Then move the mouse cursor over where you want the node, over a way or over your GPS track (if you uploaded one) and left click wherever you want to place the node. A red dot (a selected node) should appear and a rubber-line spans from that node to the mouse cursor. If you create subsequent nodes, the earlier nodes will be shown as yellow nodes.
