By default JOSM's filter 'untagged' option ignores meta tags such as note, source & created_by etc.

This is useful & annoying in equal measure. Is there a way to turn this behavior off? (toggle?)

Is there a list of all these meta tags?

The tags to ignore when looking for untagged nodes seem to be defined in UntaggedNode.java function visitKeyValue(). Currently they are:

  • tag fixme=*
  • tags starting with
    • note, comment or description
    • created_by or converted_by
    • watch
    • source

I'm not sure if you can disable this behavior. However you can explicitly add tags you are searching for, for example by using "untagged or fixme or note".
