JOSM problem

Posted by Voivod on 23 April 2020 in English (English)

Well, it's not really a problem. It's something that just bothers me, and I wonder if it can be solved. As you may see in this screenshot, nodes are invisible. I don't know if I'm the only one who has this problem, or if this is because of this newer version of JOSM. It's really annoying not to be able to see what are you editing and where are the nodes, as I got used to see them before. Is there a solution? Am I able to change this in the options menu?

Hello. JOSM currently is set to have nodes not show when zoomed out too far. When my scale in the corner reads 300m or less, the nodes are present; when it is more than 300m (yours is set to 500m right now), they are "invisible" when part of a way. If they are unattached nodes they should still be visible even at 500m-level zoom. I understand the frustration, and I cannot find anything in JOSM documentation about it specifically. I'll keep looking, but it appears that this is the way the program works.

That said, you should have the ability to see the note with the cursor by hovering over a line. The icon should change when in select or add mode. Plus, if you highlight an area with the select tool, you can see groups of nodes within that area. Selecting a way should default to show arrowheads on the way to point to individual nodes. It's not maybe what you're looking for, but it's the closest that I can find.

Sorry if this isn't too much help.
