Merge layers when downloading after opening file

When you open JOSM and the first step is opening a kml file, then when you download OSM data the file layer and OSM data layer get merged.

Please, describe your problem with more details and suggest what JOSM should do instead of merging. -Thanks

Note: You can always use the checkbox in the lower left corner of any download dialog to download into a new layer.

Thank you, I haven't noted the New layer checkbox. If you first download OSM data and then you open a file, the new file opens in a new layer. I will describe de steps:

  1. Open JOSM
  2. Open a KMZ file
  3. Download data
  4. OSM data and KMZ file get merged. It should download data in a differente layer.

It's very confusing, if you don't pay attention you can easily upload changes to OSM including the KMZ file you opened. In my case I open the KMZ file where I have administrative boundaries, that KMZ file also helps me to know which area I have to download OSM data, and then I translate those lines into JOSM data, add tags, correct them, etc.

Well, what is your suggestion ?

  • treat KMZ as separate type and never merge automatically ?
  • treat opened files separately and never merge automatically (could be a preference option) ?

Forgot: there is a hidden feature to prohibit JOSM to upload files (upload=false). I am not sure if it only works with OSM data files though.
