JOSM Presets updated

I rearranged the presets in JOSM and am prepared for the usual bashing :) .

Tracks and paths have been reunified into one menu entry only, so the convenience menu shortcuts to the various types of tracks and paths are past. OTOH, I have introduced dedicated menu entries for combined foot and cycleways:

The types have been included as popup menus into the dialogs. Besides tracktypes and hiking scales, I also included mountainbike scales, while more special tags for mountain bikers can be used by including an existing set of externally maintained presets:

Obviously, the dialogs are completely overcrowded. We will not be able to stuff any and all tags that will develop in the future into JOSM. Be prepared that I will do some major cleanup work some day.

    Bashing ? Those changes look much better to me than the previous layout. I share the feelings you explain in the next post – I’m pleased to see that not only am I not the only one have them, but on top of that my favourite editor changes to accommodate them. Thank you !

    Would you be able to add the ability to search all the presets, including synonyms? This alone would make me more interested in using the presets, as I know what I want to add, I just don’t know which sub menus to go through to get it, and it’s faster to just enter the tags manually.
