I am using OSM Place Search Plugin in QGIS for searching and importing places, cities, towns etc. from Openstreetmap database into my projects. Great Plugin by the way. But I have a big problem.
When searching for a city, e.g. München (Munich, Germany), the plugin always shows and imports the boundry as a polygon. Unfortunatelly that is not what I need. I would like to have the node imported, which works as the origin for the text label "München" and is marked as the city center. So I would like to have this instead of this imported. As you might know the plugin uses Nominatim and in it's configuration dialog it provides the ability to filter the query by Nominatim specific API options.
I have read the docs and tried several configurations to make the plugin work as I need it, but I couldn't figure it out, as I am not an Nominatim pro.
Is there any way to tell the plugin to receive the node-label instead of of a (city) boundary from Nominatim? Or are there other solutions to my problem? I am not limited to OSM Place Search, but I really need the plugin's feature which includes several useful OSM information/keys in the imported layer's attribute table (E.g. capital = yes). I know, there is the plugin Geo Coding, which behaves exactly how I want, but unfortunately it doesn't include any OSM keys into the attribute tables, except from the address.
