Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I am using JOSM stable version 13576 and Windows 10. When I use the "Adjust Imagery Offset" window it works fine as it should but when I press OK to apply the adjustment and go back to mapping the Offset window disappears but it does not release. This means that when I left click and drag then the imagery keeps moving and I cannot select any features or draw any features. This happens when I use the Tasking Manager to download a task square and also when I download direct off OpenStreetMap using the slippy map. How can I fix this so I can apply the offsets?

I had the same problem with version 13576 and, thus, went back to 13500. There is a ticket about this issue (https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/16133) which apparently has been closed 4 days ago. It seems to work again in version 13694, but I haven't tested it.

Thank you for the response and the helpful advice. I have found a work-around for Version 13576.

By manually moving the green "active layer" icon to the imagery I am moving, moving the imagery and pressing "OK" then manually moving the "active layer" icon back to the Data layer. This process allows JOSM to accept the moved imagery and revert back to mapping mode.
