Is there a way to easily delete inner relations once an outer relation has been deleted in josm, keeping the properties of the inner relations.

Not sure what you mean here. Relation members are easy enough to edit in the relations screen. Do you want to delete a relation, but transfer its tags back to the relation members ?

If that's what you want (are you sure ? relations are a good thing, think twice before deleting one), here's an option :

  • Select a relation, copy it (Ctrl+C)
  • Select a member, and paste tags (Ctrl_Shift+V)
  • Delete the relation
  • Edit/remove tags that have nothing to do in the relation member, like "type=route" for example
  • Copy the member (Ctrl+C), select the other members, and paste tags (Ctrl+Shif+V)

You may want to use a temporary object to edit the tags to be pasted, so that only the tags you want to paste are included.
