Description Masaki Katakai 2009-05-12 14:22:40 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200905120201)
Java: 1.6.0_07; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 1.6.0_07-b06-57
System: Mac OS X version 10.5.6 running on x86_64; SJIS; en (nb)

When click on some components on "Installed" tag,
Plugins dialog will not be resized properly.

1 plug selected. Uninstall operation will require restart of the IDE

This message is added beside the buttons when
click on the checkbox. In Japanese environment,
close and help buttons disappear.

could you please advice how to place all those components (3 buttons, selection info, restart warning) the best?
Current layout (all on the single line) does not work any more for them since its requires the dialog to be too wide.

(I personally think of moving the "X plugins selected" label somewhere else.. maybe below the buttons. It became not 
well connected to the list)

Dmitry, my answer is maybe not what you expect, but why not to remove the message "Uninstall operation will require the
restart of the IDE" completely? 

We introduced it when with selection, the only thing you could do was to remove plugins. Now, when you select
one/multiple features, you are actually more likely to deactivate/activate then to uninstall and this message only draws
your attention without any reason. 

Even if you do not know this information and you start to uninstall, you're asked whether you want to restart or not. So
it's a safe operation with no need to warn the user ahead.

thanks for your answer. It makes sense to me and I can`t but agree with you:) We`ll remove it soon.
