Paste the contents of the clipboard,
at the mouse pointer position into the active data layer:

  • all nodes and parent objects will be preserved as they were selected (relative position is kept)
  • links in the data (node-way, way-relation and node-relation) will be respected only if they were selected; cloned objects will have (new) links similar to copied objects

Pasting object URLs

When you have an open osm data layer and you paste an object URL from osm.org e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/20830918 the object will be downloaded to the current active data layer. This works for all object types.
