JOSM not showing place names

I found that when I tried to download an area with place = neighborhood/villages etc., I encountered an anomaly. If that place is marked with a node, it will show up on that download screen. However, if that place is marked as a polygon/closed way, the name of that place disappears.

Consequently, it causes an unnecessary download to check if that place has already been named or not.

Sincerely.

Re: JOSM not showing place names

Where exactly in JOSM do you miss the place name?

Standard render does not show it by design, and JOSM also

Re: JOSM not showing place names

Is it about the slippy map shown in the download dialog? That's - by default - the "OpenStreetMap Carto (Standard)" style

Re: JOSM not showing place names

Ok then. So how do I get the download slippy map to show the name? I'll try see other styles that might help. Also I might try looking for the reason why the powers to be decided that way.

Thanks!

Re: JOSM not showing place names

You can find places with no name using QA tools or a overpass query.
