#4475 new enhancement

restrict editing in areas that are not downloaded

Reported by: dieterdreist Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version: latest
Keywords: downloaded areas, editing Cc:


  1. JOSM prohibits deletion of nodes in areas where you haven't downloaded. But it still permits moving and adding nodes in those off-areas. IMHO it would be better to prohibit any editing in those areas.
  2. When you try to delete there is currently no user-feedback. The item get's unselected and not deleted, but there should be an additional alert explaining why it didn't work (and if possible also an accoustic alarm): "Cannot delete in areas that are not downloaded" or similar.

I get your alert but please do not prohibit it totally !!!

I would prefere though a possibility to disconnect a way from a node with no other connected way.
