Windows menu

The Windows menu handles other screen elements in JOSM. For the different kinds of elements the menu has three sections:

  1. For independent dialogs which can be opened from the Windows menu.
  2. For all Sidebar panels like Layers, Tags/Memberships, Selection, Relations or Changesets.
    • These panels can be opened with their icons from the Edit Toolbar too.
  3. For volatile non-modal elements if present, like Relation editors or the Help Browser window.


Note: With a keyboard shortcut the respective dialog or panel can always be opened, even when their menu item or toolbar button is not shown.
