Way splitting: assign history automatically

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: way splitting Cc:


What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. select a way.
  2. press P to split the way.

What is the expected result?

The Splitting Tool shall not ask the user which way should keep the history, but answer this question automatically or let the user assign it to both way parts.

What happens instead?

Since version 8964 the user is asked which way should keep the history. The dialog only contains a mutual list of way parts, with no information about the history to keep. So answering this question is guessing. Secondly if I split the way I might want to keep the history for both parts, so the question is rather pointless. Thirdly this new dialog hinders the user in working quickly.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

I think this new behavior came in with revision 8886.

The history to keep is the id of the way to split with all of its former versions (e.g.,

It is impossible for both split parts to keep the history. This is due to the design of the OSM API.
