Potlatch: selecting several nodes when they are part of a way

There is a problem regarding addresses for some towns in Argentina, where some users added addr:housenumber=* to the entire town but they forgot to add addr:street=* to the nodes.

I would like to select all nodes corresponding to a street using Potlatch 2, so I can apply the tag addr:street, but it appears that selecting multiple nodes using CTRL-click only works when the nodes are isolated, not a part of a way. In this case, there is a way with addr:interpolation=* between each pair of nodes.

How can I proceed?

Re: Potlatch: selecting several nodes when they are part of a way

If you want to add the name of the street, use name=... on the way and not addr:street=... on every node.
The various addr: keys are used to provide address information for buildings and facilities. See wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:addr

The addresses use addr:street and addr:housenumber on each node at the end of the block and then a way with addr:interpolation joining these nodes. Read this wiki page: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Pro … uhe_Schema

I solved the problem by changing to JOSM.

Re: Potlatch: selecting several nodes when they are part of a way

My interpretation of your first post was that you intended to add address-keys to every node of a way. I understand now that you are talking about the buildings along the way and was looking for a smart way to represent their house numbers.
Good to hear that JOSM solved your primary question smile
