On a JOSM upload, if a potential problem such as a single-node way is found, a dialog box appears:

JOSM validator box

Is it possible to copy details of the errors from this? It seems not to be.

If by "copying" you mean "put in the copy-paste buffer", then it seems to be possible at a basic level:

  • Get the dialog to appear or even use the validatior tool in the sidebar
  • Open all branches of the tree using the mouse
  • Type Ctrl-A to select all and Ctrl-C to copy
  • Open your favorite text editor and type Ctrl-V to paste

It returns something like

Warnings
Crossing buildings (1)
TestError [tester=org.openstreetmap.josm.data.validation.tests.CrossingWays@7a48772, code=601]
Building inside building (2)

A name:* translation is missing. (1)

...etc

Which is only mildly useful. This works for me, JOSM 6232 on Linux.

That works for me too now. Must have been user error at my end previously.
