  • 30 October 2008: v0.10f. Parallel path function; show whether data being saved; gradual redraw on zoom in/out; option for noname-style casing.
Is there any documentation for this feature? How does it work, what does it do? --Krza 08:37, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Oops, you're right, there should be some documentation. I'll add some but, in brief: select the way, press 'P', select the offset distance, and two parallel (locked) ways will be created. Delete the one you don't want, edit and unlock the one you do! --Richard 10:11, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Aha ... cool ... I had found the 'P' hin meanwhile but was a bit confused that always 2 ways are created. Now it´s clear, thanks. But one question: Do you think that it´s possible to create a "Parallelizer" feature for aligning 2 existing ways? It would probably be difficult ... yes ... too difficult. But there would be an alternative: If the newly created (locked) ways had their nodes always highlighted, it would be possible to use them as calibre / jig for aligning the second existing way. At the end you would remove both locked ways in this case. Please try this scenario out and optimize the feature accordingly ;) Thanks a lot and best regards, --Krza 16:10, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
