TagEditor plugin provides an alternative window for editing tags in JOSM. It provides a spreadsheet-like interface for tag keys and tag values.
- can be launched from the "Edit" menu or using the shortcut 'T'
- supports mouseless operation. A typical editor scenario:
- press 'T' to launch the editor
- enter a tag key and press 'TAB' or 'ENTER' to navigate to the next cell
- enter a tag value and press 'TAB' or 'ENTER' to navigate to the next cell
- press 'Ctrl ENTER' to apply the tags to the currently selected OSM primitives and close the editor
- improved auto completion for tag keys and tag values. Distinguishes between "official" OSM values and "non-official" values from the currently edited OSM data set. Also takes into account whether the current selection includes nodes and/or ways.
- displays a list of reasonable values for a tag key or a tag value in the current context
- provides a searchable, tabular list of JOSM presets
- provides a searchable, tabular list of "official" OSM Map Features (key/value-pairs).
Relationship with JOSM
You'll find that JOSM now uses the same UI component for editing tags of relations in the Relation Editor and for editing tags of changesets in the Upload Dialog. The respective part of the tageditor plugin has been moved to the JOSM core.
