source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/delete.svg Keyboard Shortcut: Delete

Delete the currently selected objects.

Deleting objects

The results of deleting an object are:

  • If a deleted node was at the end of a way, the way gets shortened.
  • If a deleted node was in the middle of the way, the way is changed that it runs between the remaining nodes.
  • If the user deletes a way then the way and its untagged nodes not being child of another way get deleted.
  • If the user deletes a relation only the relation is deleted.

In all cases the object is removed from all relations it was a member of before. Usually a warning is raised in advance of deleting an object`s membership.
