Add/modify/remove tags of the relation

All tags of the relations are entered based on type=* key (simple explanation). You (or tools you're using) should specify type=* tag first, then you can active presets or add other details.

  2. Select one or many relations, then add tags using regular tools that work on tags (there many of them: Tags)
