Command Stack Dialog

source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/commandstack.svg Keyboard shortcut: Alt+Shift+O — one of the JOSM panels

This sidebar panel shows all commands issued. better screenshot


This panel can be used to spot mistakes during editing in JOSM and to undo/redo several actions at once.

Note: Josm uses only one stack for all OSM-Data layers and there is no indication of layer switches in the panel.

Stack List

The stack displays one action per line with:

  • source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/propertiesdialog.svg Tags representing changes on tags
  • source:trunk/resources/images/data/sequence.svg Sequence representing geometrical changes on objects like adding, moving and deleting source:trunk/resources/images/data/node.svg nodes or source:trunk/resources/images/data/way.svg ways
  • source:trunk/resources/images/data/relation.svg Relation representing changes of source:trunk/resources/images/data/relation.svg relations only

If multiple objects were changed in one action unfolding by clicking on the source:trunk/resources/images/svpRight.svg anchor on the left will show one object per line. Depending on the action folding might not be supported or even another unfold is needed to show the objects.

A thin horizontal line displays the current position with in the stack which is rendered in Map View.

Control buttons

Note: Depending on the selection in the stack either the source:trunk/resources/images/undo.svg Undo button or the source:trunk/resources/images/redo.svg Redo button is active but never both.


source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/select.svg Select selects all objects which are not deleted and were modified by the currently selected action in the stack. If an object is selected in the stack it is selected.


source:trunk/resources/images/undo.svg Undo reverts all changes up to the currently selected action in the stack including the selected one.


source:trunk/resources/images/redo.svg Redo reapplies all previously reverted changes down to the currently selected action in the stack including the selected one.
