#474 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Being unable to turn off node creation, without node-reuse being turned off.

If I have a way




And I want to create a new t-junction at 'a', it instead snaps to the nearest node, if working at a reasonable zoom-out.

Rather than having to:
Select zoom, zoom in to area, create beginning of way, zoom out, pan to where you were before, selct creation tool, continue creating way.

Perhaps Alt-Gr would turn off node-reuse, but keep node creation?

Personally, I'd like a box which lets me select:

MetakeysDescriptionAutoConnectNew wayNode ReuseAutoinsert NodeKeep Node tags
ShiftCreate/add with no connectnonoyesyesno
NoneCreate/add nodeyesnoyesyesno
Shift-Alt-CtrlCreate new node/way copying tagsyesyesyesyesyes

A tooltip pops up if the user holds a metakey for a few seconds, listing the current settings.

Did you know you can zoom using the mouse wheel? I don't know if it's a good idea to add yet more modifiers...

Doesn't work well - for example, If I'm tagging all features on a WMS image, I can't zoom and pan back to the original place, it's a seperate operation.
Neglecting the fact that zooming is slow.
