I want to crop an OpenStreetMap (a specific area, for example a town). I want to save and export this cropped area using QGIS (format could be .osm or .shp).
I have searched everywhere but I could not find a valid answer. Is this not possible? One can crop an OpenStreetMap directly but it is limited by the size of cropping area. I assume this is a fairly common practice. What are the alternatives available?
I am using QGIS 3.10 over Ubuntu 18.
