I have a constant that is defined in a local class and I'd like to move it into a class higher up the package structure since it turns out that it is useful across multiple packages. Unlike other IDEs, Netbeans "Refactor->Move" seems to only allow me to move the whole class.
The ability to move fields and methods to other existing classes would be a very helpful refactoring.
At first I thought it was a bug that I couldn't move methods or fields. This is a really essential refactoring that I used all the time in IDEA, it would be great if Netbeans had this too.
That is an important feature which is present in Eclipse but not in Netbeans
This is a very useful refactoring, thought netbeans already implemented it, but was surprised to find out that it did not.
