The settings are in the General tab, under the Map section.
- Default map view - Choose what is the default view. Users can change this at any time.
- Insert tile URL - Add the URL of the tile service of your choice. Check Tiles - OpenStreetMap Wiki for more examples.

Add /:zoom:/:x:/:y: at the end of the URL and e all three patterns will be substituted with corresponding values, and map will be provided by source server.
Add the tile url https://tile.openstreetmap.org/:zoom:/:x:/:y:.png. The source server will generate https://tile.openstreetmap.org/7/40/27.png.
