#12243 new enhancement

Quick apply tags

There are numerous keyboard shortcuts for drawing tools, but tagging is still largely UI menu driven and has a lot of potential for being more efficient.

How about we expand on the convenience of copy pasting tags to allow anyone to quickly apply common tags to a selected object using a vim style key combination.


  • t-b building=yes
  • t-b-l-4 building=yes+building:levels=4
  • t-h-m highway=motorway
  • t-h-m-m highway=motorway_link
  • t-h-r highway=residential
  • t-h-o oneway=yes
  • t-B bridge=yes+layer=1
  • t-T tunnel=yes+layer=-1
  • t-plus upgrade tag (stream-> river, tertiary->secondary, town->city)
  • t-minus downgrade tag
  • t apply previously applied tag
  • t-t auto mode: create new features with previously applied tags

This would be a huge timesaver for expert mappers who work on a large amount of features by allowing one to focus on tracing and not navigating tagging menus.
