#2335 new enhancement

displayed modifiers in selection mode (defect and enhancement)

Reported by: dieterdreist Owned by: team
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Core Version: latest
Keywords: Cc:


The status bar displays for select mode:

  1. "...shift to add to selection (ctrl. to toggle)" but what ctrl. actually does is subtract or delete from selection, not "toggle" (which imho would mean to turn unselected to selected as unselected the seleted).
  1. The Alt-Modifier is not mentioned. Maybe the description could be something like: "drag to move (Shift:add, Ctrl:subtract, Alt:include intersected ways (right now not completely true, see 3.), Shift+Ctrl: rotate)"

The hint: "or change selection" is IMHO not needed and can be replaced by an alt-description".

  1. The behaviour of the alt-Modifier is somehow strange, as it selects ways (and nodes) by selecting a single node, but it does not select when the selection mask intersects the way itself without comprising a node (should IMHO work for both).
  1. the single steps in selection-mode are not undoable (ctrl.+z), because history-events are not created every time (could be an annyoance for complex selection sets, you click one time wrong and have to repeat it all).

1: CTRL toggles. The remove was old behaviour. Only when you draw a rectangular box it still removes, as this is easier to handle. Toggling there would be too confusing.

2: The text is already long enough.

3: I think this is wanted and should stay as is.

4: You can use the selection history to undo this.

where do I find the selection history?

  1. OK, didn't test on single nodes. If things are like that, I suggest to switch from toggle to remove for nodes (and ctrl-click) as well (like for area-selection), because it is consistent. The changement to make ctrl. a "half"-toggle-button is more confusing then helping. Why toggle? Either you want to add (shift) or remove (ctrl). simple as that.

I know that the description is long, but nobody needs the "or change selection"-Text, so it can be substituted. The latter is obvious, while the "alt"-Modifier is not at all.

Which part do you mean by "its wanted to stay"?

I'm reopening it, as enhancement this way, if unconsistent behaviour and wrong hints are not considered bugs.
