File > Download object

source:trunk/images/downloadprimitive.png Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+O

Load one or several OSM objects (node, way or relation) from the OSM API server either in the current data layer or in a new data layer. The downloaded data will contain the way nodes for ways and optionally any referrers (ways or relations that reference the downloaded object).
Note: Only the referrers of the downloaded object itself are downloaded, not the referrers for any of its children (way nodes).

The following dialog is displayed:

You can choose the type of objects ( source:trunk/images/data/node.png node, source:trunk/images/data/way.png way, source:trunk/images/data/relation.png relation or mixed) to download and enter their ID. Clicking on Download object starts the download.

Multiple objects

  • Use a comma separated list for several objects of the same type if the type is already specified in the drop down list above, e.g. 1,2,3
  • Use comma separated list with the first letter of the type for mixed objects, e.g. w123,n68,n211,r7.
  • Use ranges, like w10-20

Check boxes

  • You can choose whether or not any referrers (parent relations and ways) are to be downloaded:
    • if Download referrers is selected, any referring objects are downloaded
    • if Download referrers is not selected, no referrers are downloaded
  • You can choose whether or not any relation members are to be downloaded:
    • if Download relation members is selected, any relation members are downloaded
    • if Download relation members is not selected, no members are downloaded
  • You can control whether the data is loaded into the current or in a new layer:
    • if Separate layer is selected, the data is loaded into a new layer
    • if Separate layer is not selected, the data is merged into the current data layer

If no data layer does exist, a new data layer is always created.

Data source

The OSM API server specified in Connection Settings is the data source used here.
