Hi all,

I’m not sure if this is the right place to post these questions. I’m a first time validator and I’ve been following the instructions at:


I wanted to add the JOSM Style 'HOT-OSM-Validation' as instructed at the above link. I followed the detailed instructions for map styles located here:


The ‘'HOT-OSM-Validation” no longer appears on the list map paint styles so I added it from GitHub (https://github.com/MarkCupitt/HOT-Osm-Validation). Then I noticed “"HDM by HOT" on the list in JOSM and also added it. 

Which is the proper tool to use?

Also when I close/re-open JOSM I had to add HDM by HOT again. Is there a way to get this option to “stick”?
