  • osm-primitives.showid: set to true/false to display/hide the OSM id of the object in the list
  • osm-primitives.showcoor: set to true/false to display/hide the coordinates of the object in the list
  • osm-primitives.showversion: set to true/false to display/hide the version number of the object in the list
  • osm-primitives.localize-name: set to true to display the localized name of the object, if corresponding tag is present (expert mode only).
  • osm-primitives.showid.new-primitives: set to true to display the internal negative OSM id of new objects in the list, instead of zero (0) for all (expert mode only).
