The editor/demosrc/ contains a standalone example that doesn't compile for 6.0 M10.
Filing this under documentation as it seems the best subcomponent in the list.
While unfortunate I doubt that this is a priority at the moment. In fact using Netbeans editor as a standalone swing
application has always been a nice side effect of the way how things were organized in the editor modules. Given the
amount of changes done for Nb6 we will have to review this setup. It should still be possible to run Nb editor as a

Any help is more than welcome of course ;-). Thanks for understanding.
This is actually an unfortunate regression.
You should probably also change the architecture docs:
"The editor library module provides subset of editor functionality independent on the NetBeans IDE (except few specific

NetBeans was always good at maintaining backwards compatibity. It's sad that such a nice feature (standalone editor) is
Resolving all issues with milestone "future" as LATER. If you feel strongly that
it should be implemented please reopen and set the target milestone to "next".
I felt strongly and so, as instructed above, reopened and set to "Next". Also changed it to a P3, since as Emilian
points out, this impacts our famous backward compatibility.
Assigning to another component. The usersguide module is used for issues on NetBeans documentation (javahelp, tutorials)
I am sorry but standalone editor is not a priority for us --> P4.
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
Thanks for your cooperation,
