    67Settings for the map projection and data interpretation
    78
    89== Map Projection ==
     10On each startup JOSM sets the projection method, the coordinate display format and the system of measurement back to user default settings.
    911
    10 You can change the map projection method between Mercator, and some others. Be aware that projections maybe only valid for a certain area of the world.[[BR]]
    11 The default projection for JOSM is Mercator. This projection has certain advantages, one of them is that geometric figures (e.g. circles and rectangles) aren't deformed when displayed. This is useful for mapping.
     12=== Projection method ===
     13For the current session the projection method can be changed here. \\
     14A list of common projections is offered and customs projections can be set.
    1215
    13 JOSM is able to automatically reproject raster images from the projection of the source to the projection that is set in JOSM. To avoid having set an unsuitable projection for a long time JOSM resets the projection setting to Mercator at every restart. In [ExpertMode Expert mode] you can set another projection as default with the "Set as default" button.
     16 Projection code:: shows the EPSG code for the projection.
     17 Bounds:: shows the region where the projection is valid. \\
     18 Some projections are valid only for small parts of the world.\\
    1419
    15 You can also change the system of measurement here (Metric, Chinese, Imperial, Nautical Mile). (You can also change it in the [wiki:Help/StatusBar status bar].)
     20Common default projection for JOSM is Mercator (EPSG:3857). \\
     21It has certain advantages, one of them is that geometric figures (e.g. circles and rectangles) aren't deformed when displayed. \\
     22JOSM reprojects raster images from the projection of the source automatically to the current projection method.

    17 == Map Paint Styles tab == #MapPaintStyles
     24 Set as default::
     25 With this button the user default setting for the projection method is set.
     26 It is visible in [wikitr:/Help/ExpertMode Expert mode] only, #14877.
    1827
    19 In this section sources for displaying the data can be changed. Beside the internal styles also externals styles are presented and can be activated.
     28=== Display coordinates as ===
     29Set the user default coordinate format (Decimal, Degrees, Nautical or Projected Coordinates).
     30 
     31=== System of measurement ===
     32Set the user default system of measurement (Metric, Chinese, Imperial or Nautical Mile).
     33
     34In the [wikitr:/Help/StatusBar status bar] the coordinate format and the system of measurement can be changed in the context menu for the current session.
     35So the numbers in ''Bounds'' may not fit to ''Display coordinates as''.

     55Use [[JOSMImage(preferences/activate-right)]] the blue, right arrow in the middle. \\

    4260=== Add a preset from the file ===
     61Include one from a URL or local file (or network-located file or file in a Dropbox alternative) by clicking on the [[JOSMImage(dialogs/add)]] plus button on the right.

     63Adding presets requires a restart of JOSM. Then the [wikitr:/Introduction#Presets tagging presets can be selected as usual].

    4868
    49 == File Backup == #BackupSettings
    50 If you save geo data to a local file and the file already exists JOSM writes the data to a temporary file (with the suffix {{{~}}}). It then copies the temporary file to the target file.
    51 In the File Backup settings you can specify whether JOSM should delete the temporary file or whether it should leave it as "backup" in the file system.
     69=== Autosave ===
     70* **Auto save enable**: enable or disable [wikitr:/Help/Action/AutoSave autosave] altogether (`autosave.enabled`)
     71 * **Auto save interval**: set a custom value for the time interval in seconds (default is 300) (`autosave.interval`).
     72 * **Auto save files per layer**: set a custom value for the number of backup files per data layer (default is 1) (`autosave.filesPerLayer`). \\
     73 If you increase it to 2, JOSM will not only save the last snapshot of your changes, but also the last but one (in case it differs from the last, otherwise an even older snapshot, if available).
    5274
    53 1. Go to the tab **File backup** in the Map Preferences
    54 1. Select or deselect the checkbox **Keep backup files**
     75=== Backup ===
     76* **Keep backup files when saving data layers**: enable or disable file backup of data files (`save.keepbackup`) \\
     77 If you save a data layer to a local file and the file already exists JOSM writes the data to a temporary file (with a tilde `~` as suffix). It then copies the temporary file to the target file. \\
     78 Here you can specify whether JOSM should delete the temporary file or whether it should leave it as "backup" in the file system.

    56 See [Action/AutoSave#Preferences AutoSave Preferences]
     80=== Notification ===
     81* **Notification at each save**: choose if you want to see a small notification at each save (`autosave.notification`).
