Edit Toolbar

screenshot The Edit toolbar has two parts. These allow to enter a Working mode and to activate panels in the Sidebar.

  • The toolbar and its buttons can be hidden, see below.
  • The Single-Up-Arrows up and Single-Down-Arrows down arrow buttons at top and bottom move the toolbar respectively.

Upper part

  • Here some buttons for Working mode are offered.
    • Clicking a button will enter that Working mode.
  • The current Working mode is indicated if its respective button is available on the toolbar.
  • Only three mode buttons are initially shown on this part of the toolbar due to limited screen space.

Lower part

Panels for the Sidebar can be activated in the lower part of this toolbar.


The edit toolbar is usually visible at the left side of JOSMs interface but it can be hidden.

A right click on an button in the edit toolbar offers the following options:
