Potlatch - Creating a command to apply the same tag

Quite often, when editing maps, I have to enter many times the same tag on various ways (e.g. highway=*).
I would save A LOT of time if there were a quick way to apply again the same tag. Let's say the latest tag entered would be kept in memory and, even when changing way, would be re-applied just by pressing "F4" or anything.
I suspect there must be two buffers: one for ways, and one for nodes.
Thanks!

PS: I have been adding many requests these days. I hope nobody will find me rude. Thanks.

Try hitting "R". It adds the tags/values of the last selected object to the current object.

Re: Potlatch - Creating a command to apply the same tag

Yes, it works, but it is quite tricky.

I created a Way, with a name and a description, for instance, and then I removed the name.
I applied with R the tags on another Way. The other Way lost it's name, but, as expected, got the Description.
This means that the R replicates also the "remove-tag" command...

I think you get an exact copy of the tags on the other way, But I can understand why one would like to just add a set of tags. I don't think potlatch can do that atm.
