Tools > Join overlapping Areas

source:/trunk/images/joinareas.png Keyboard shortcut: Shift+J

Join areas that overlapping each other.

You can select two or more closed ways. If one area is surrounded by the other(s) it will automatically create a multipolygon. If the areas to join have different tags, a conflict dialog will show up. You need to choose there which value you want to use for the joined area. The options are:

  • all single values of the different areas
  • none - the key will be removed
  • all - all values are used for a key, seperated by a semicolon

If the key is capacity=* or capacity:*=* there is one more option:

  • sum - summs all numerical values of the selected areas
