#20979 new enhancement

Not a bug, but it is really hard to determine what areas you have downloaded. The contrast between the layers (particularly aerial) makes it almost impossible to keep track of your download areas. Thanks!

Reported by: hamish.henderson@… Owned by: ris
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Plugin markseen Version:
Keywords: template_report Cc:


What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Using markseen to keep track of areas that have been edited

What is the expected result? to be able to tell what is within your download area and what isnt

What happens instead? there isnt enought contrast between download and not download area.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

This is actually behaviour inherited from JOSM's own SlippyMapBBoxChooser @

You could petition JOSM upstream to simply amend to pull the downloaded-area opacity out of a manually configurable preference instead of using a fixed value of 32. Or even make the full RGBA color configurable in the way that many of JOSM's colors are.
