Open a Netbeans Module project or a Simple Java project
select a file node in the project window Main.java for eg.
select All Files
path to Main.java is there.
expected: to be able to copy the file path to clipboard
current: a list item with the full path of the file, but no selectable text
You need this feature when you edit a file in NetBeans with a mime type which is not yet implemented.
You want to develop in NetBeans IDE but you need to do actions outside the IDE, and you need the file path for that.
Same applies for Favourites
This  should help you.
