Description Patrick Keegan 2008-02-15 16:06:23 UTC
Apologies in advance if this is the wrong component.

A common question is how to globally change the user name that is used in file templates. The Templates manager has this
feature buried at the bottom of a list template categories (which are somewhat orthogonal to the idea of changing a
global property). This property should be made more discoverable. Perhaps simply putting the User Configuration
Properties as the first thing in the list would help. Perhaps even pulling out as a leaf at the top level
would be even better.

Honzo, where should we reassign this, please? Are you still working on templates? Thanks
Comment 2 Jan Pokorsky 2008-02-18 16:27:24 UTC
It was implemented as issue #114625 by jtulach. Reassigning to the same componet as the origin issue.
Comment 3 mslama 2008-03-04 15:46:46 UTC
Passing to HIE
Comment 4 kissedsmiley 2008-12-15 03:38:59 UTC
I added notes to the other bug, 114625: 
How about adding a button on the pref/editor/codeTemplates area. This button is "showAllVariables" and it would show all
variables allowed to be used, according to whatever file netbeans is currently using. 
If they are/not editable, then a button could be added to make them so.

This UI is really terrible!
Comment 7 Martin Entlicher 2010-10-12 15:56:00 UTC
Fixed by changeset:   179343:af8540549e4a
Settings button added and "User Configuration Properties" folder is filtered out.
Editing of properties though a properties file is kept, however.
