Keyboard shortcuts: Alt-number acts on layers in reverse order

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: team

Description (last modified by Don-vip)

Hi. I'm using JOSM 9979 from Debian without any keyboard configuration changes. The "Keyboard shortcuts" says that Alt+1 is "Toggle visibility of layer: 1", Alt+2 is for layer 2 and so on. If the Layers window shows layers


then I observe Alt+1 affecting CCC, Alt+2 affecting BBB and Alt+3 affecting AAA, which is the opposite of how I expect it to work. Note that I can activate layers the way one would expect: Shift-A 1 activates AAA and so on. Thanks.

I would stick with the current behaviour:

  • Since imagery layers are added at the bottom of the layer list, pressing ALT+1 toggles the lowest imagery layer – independent of the number of data layers.
  • Relating to the screenshot in the description, "Data Layer 2" is added on top of "Data Layer 1". Thus, pressing ALT+1 toggles "Data Layer 1".

Two comments:

  1. I almost never have multiple data layers. The layers are always of different types, and the UI should be manipulating them in the order they appear
  1. If you really think that this is the proper behavior, then the layer-activation keys (Shift-A number) should then be changed.

I prefer to have it simple and while I understand the current behaviour, I still think it would be nicer to start counting at the same spot and not like it is atm start counting data layers from top on and imagery layers from the bottom on. This is confusing.
