I can't edit

Posted by jobrni113246 on 10 December 2017 in English (English)

I am new. I can't edit because it says "zoom in to edit"{ I keep on zooming in with the + button but it still won't let me edit

Nevermind that but how do you make your own cities, countries, etc.

That will take time, it's better to add on or make something small to hone your skills before starting a massive city. Honestly I'm not the best to consult, see if any other mappers who have more skill reach out to you, they will be better at guiding you.

You mean displaying the city name on the map? Use the node tool, mark a spot on the map and tag it place=city, place=town or place=village (in ID editor you can just begin typing e.g. "town" into the search field and pick the wanted tag from the results. The name will not appear on the actual map at once, for some zoom levels it may take several ours after you have saved your edits.

Please read the tutorials with patience and just keep practicing with small detail edits.
