Selection List Dialog
This list shows the currently selected objects (nodes, ways, closed ways and relations).
In the list:
- Nodes are shown with their names (likewise their OSM-ID) and their position in brackets.
- Ways and closed ways are shown with their names and if no name-tags exist with their main tag (eg highway, landuse, railway ...). If JOSM is not able to interpreted any tag the OSM-IDs are shown. The numbers of nodes the ways consist of are always shown in brackets.
- Relations are shown with their type and in brackets the name and the number of members.
Select selects the objects currently selected in the selection list.
Note: A very powerful tool is the selection history. Click on the small triangle on the Select button. There you can restore previous selections from a drop down list.
Search is an often unseen feature: it allows a very sophisticated search. See search. Like Select the small triangle within the Search button also offers a drop down search list of previous search.
