Attaching symbols

After the laptop breakdown, I’m experiencing a forced connection breakdown. Long story short (all details are known to Frederik, my mentor), I’ve managed to connect to the Internet in some provisional way.

I’ve added just today a little feature to Osmarender Frontend. It’s now possible to attach a simple symbol to a set of nodes. Now I’m finally starting to manipulate the rule section of the file, so it’s probably time for a refactoring to better manage the data model of the rules.

However, as you can see in the first screenshot, you need to select a key/value pair in the rules panel, then you need to go to the symbol panel, select a symbol, tweak with the controls…

Then click, for example, to “attach to railway, station”, and then you have the airport symbol near all stations!

If you tweak with height and width, obviously you can have them bigger!
