Description Ken Frank 2001-08-17 17:05:33 UTC
1. Enter on a line in Japanese locale or on Japanese windows
tora(in hiragana)tora(in english) with no spaces
2. go to the begiinig of the line
press <ctrl>/-> (right arrow key

3. The cursor goes to the beginning of the line instead of to
the second word (tora in Engish)

4. Java API has wordbreaking facilities for different locales
that don't use space/tab for word breaking as in English.

Comment 4 Jan Kovar 2003-01-15 16:13:18 UTC
I think that this is more enhancement then bug. 

The problem is, that current wordbreaking implementation 
in the IDE is not using JDK wordbreaking functionality as 
it that one is not suitable for programming languages (see 
BreakIterator javadoc at JDK pages).

After discussion with Mila I think that there is a way to 
incorporate JDK different-language-wordbreaking into IDE, 
however as I said its more like adding a feature then 
fixing a bug.
Comment 5 Ken Frank 2003-01-15 17:26:38 UTC
I am changing this to a feature, based on your comments.
Thanks for looking into this; I think the word break
feature would be helpful to those who  put in javadoc,
comments and things like text for messages, in the body
of their code, whether in ja locale or some other locale
(running english version of product)

I am investigating why our Netbeans-based JEditorPane does not 
underline Japanese text as it is being inputted (before it is 
accepted).  A plain JEditorPane with no Netbeans-based documents or 
views does show the underline.  Is this related to this Enhancement 
request?  If not, is it possible to enable this feature in NetBeans?
Comment 7 Ken Frank 2003-10-31 19:25:35 UTC
Following up on previous comment asking if this feature can
now be implemented - it is mentioned below that there was an
idea of how this could be implemented, and it would be good
for all users, but esp customers of our localized products,
to have this happen in editor.
Comment 8 Martin Balin 2016-07-07 07:28:03 UTC
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,
NetBeans IDE 8.2 Release Boss
