    30 Slippy map provides a movable map like on the OSM front page with which you can interactively select the area to download. Only differences are that {{{Shift+Click}}} to zoom is not available, move the map the JOSM way by press and hold the right mouse button and select an area by press and hold the left mouse button.

    3535=== Bounding Box ===
    3636A Bounding Box tab where you can set the latitude/longitude bounds of the data to be downloaded, and also paste an URL from either www.openstreetmap.org.
    37 * To paste from [osmwww: the map] on the OpenStreetMap site, zoom in to the area you are interested in, then either move the mouse over the "view" tab, and copy the resulting URL, or copy the permalink given in the bottom right corner. Then go to JOSM, and paste this URL into the "URL from www.openstreetmap.org" box. (In Windows to paste into the box, left click within the box, and then do CTRL+v).
    38 * To paste from [http://www.openstreetmap.org www.openstreetmap.org] zoom to the area you are interested in, and then copy the permalink location from the bottom right of screen, and paste as described above.

    4242=== Area around places ===
    43 On the ''Area around places'' tab you can search for specific places, street names, etc, in the OSM database. Currently there is only one server for the search availible: [osmwiki:Nominatim Nominatim]. (In the past there was also [osmwiki:Name_finder Namefinder], but this service has been retired and shutdown.) After you have clicked on an search result you can switch back to the Slippy map tab (which has zoomed to the area of the search result) and adjust the bounding box.

    4545=== Tile Numbers ===
    46 A Tile Numbers tab where you can enter number of tiles and a zoom level to download data of those tiles. Alternatively you enter a Tile address. This might look a little awkward especially when reading [osmwiki:Slippy_map_tilenames how to compute the tile numbers]. But sometimes it comes in handy. If you want to easily determine the tile numbers with the mouse, see [https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/40163/tile-browser-link-broken this help centre question].
