#1580 closed enhancement (invalid)

JOSM: Show row number in file open failure message

Reported by: krza Owned by: Tom Hughes
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: admin Version:
Keywords: JOSM import open failure message Cc:


Sometimes I get corrupt osm data files from the servers. When I try to open those locally stored files with JOSM the error message does only describe the failure but does NOT tell where the corrupt row can be found. At the moment I am - again - not able to find the causing row in such a file.

So please add the row number to the message text! This should be quite easy because the information should be available and only needs to be added to the string.

Another enhancement would be to offer the option to skip the corrupt rows while importing the file. But even if you think about doing this - please add the row number first and don't wait until it can be implemented.

Thanks a lot and best regards, Kristian

Sorry for putting it here wrongly but I came from the mentioned site as far as I remember. Must have been mis-directed somehow. I will try again. Kristian
