Description Jiri Vagner 2007-08-03 09:18:29 UTC
Customizer Dialog load a lot of comments into comment textfield. In my opinion only comment from previous line should be
loaded. See the screenshots. (Also editor invoked after opening file via popup menu item "Open" shows strange comments
for edited keys.)

Steps to reproduce:
 - create new properties file
 - open it in plain text mode and copypaste there : 

# main menu prop file


# menus

#menu 1 comment
#menu 2 comment

 - click popup menu item "Customize..."  on key "d" or "a" in project tree
 - open file using popup menu item "Open" and also check "d" and "a" key

agree that to much text may be annoying in a textfiel, but on the other hand - if somebody has multiline comments in his
file he's going to see only the last line and such a behavior i would see as a bigger problem because there might be
some missing information. 

We should reconsider a more fitting UI - e.g. a textarea instead of a textfield, ... ?

however - i don't think that some part of the feature wouldn't work or that we would Highly visible usability problem ->
P4. Enhancement maybe.
