[Talk-GB] British National Grid coordinates in JOSM

Hi Bob (and anyone else who’s done this),

I’ve reset the projection, and can now see the coordinates in OSGR. Yay!
But does anyone know how I can jump to a set of coordinates? If I click the coordinate boxes, the menu that comes up still insists on Lat/Lon.

I have got round to resetting the map projection in JOSM to EPSG:27700 (OSGB 1936 / British National Grid), finally.  I am surprised to find northings before eastings in the bottom left-hand corner of JOSM, when we reference BNG positions eastings before northings.  I wonder if this has something to do with the way latitude is referenced before longitude, usually?  I doubt this can be changed in JOSM but wondered what others know?  It is rather confusing.
