    109== Map Projection ==
    11 
    1210On each startup JOSM sets the projection method, the coordinate display format and the system of measurement back to user default settings.
    1311
    14  Projection method::
    15  For the current session the projection method can be changed here.
    16  A list of common projections is offered and customs projections can be set.\\
    17  \\
    18  **Projection code** shows the EPSG code for the projection.\\
    19  \\
    20  **Bounds** shows the region where the projection is valid.
     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.
     15
     16 Projection code:: shows the EPSG code for the projection.
     17 Bounds:: shows the region where the projection is valid. \\
    2118 Some projections are valid only for small parts of the world.\\
    22  \\
    23  Common default projection for JOSM is Mercator (EPSG:3857).
    24  It has certain advantages, one of them is that geometric figures (e.g. circles and rectangles) aren't deformed when displayed.
    25  JOSM reprojects raster images from the projection of the source automatically to the current projection method.

    31  Display coordinates as::
    32  Set the user default coordinate format (Decimal, Degrees, Nautical or Projected Coordinates).
     28=== Display coordinates as ===
     29Set the user default coordinate format (Decimal, Degrees, Nautical or Projected Coordinates).
    3330 
    34  System of measurement::
    35  Set the user default system of measurement (Metric, Chinese, Imperial or Nautical Mile).
     31=== System of measurement ===
     32Set the user default system of measurement (Metric, Chinese, Imperial or Nautical Mile).
    3633
    3734In 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.
    3835So the numbers in ''Bounds'' may not fit to ''Display coordinates as''.

     68
     69=== Autosave ===
     70* enable or disable [wikitr:/Help/Action/AutoSave autosave] altogether
     71 * set a custom value for the time interval in seconds (default is 300).
     72 * set a custom value for the number of backup files per data layer (default is 1). 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).
     73
     74=== Backup ===
     75* keep backup files when saving data layer \\
     76 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. \\
     77 Here you can specify whether JOSM should delete the temporary file or whether it should leave it as "backup" in the file system.
     78
     79=== Notification ===
     80* Choose if you want to see a small notification at each save.

    76 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.
    77 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.

    79 1. Go to the tab **File backup** in the Map Preferences
    80 1. Select or deselect the checkbox **Keep backup files**
