Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.1.2 (Build 201204101705)
Java: 1.7.0_04; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 23.0-b21
System: Mac OS X version 10.7.3 running on x86_64; US-ASCII; en_US (nb)
After dragging and dropping something from Projects or Files Views or Palette in GUI designers, when you scroll the View or Palette up/down, it keeps scrolling itself back to the drag position, making it impossible to select nodes/components not visible without scrolling to them.
Release Note for NB 7.1.2 :
Broken Palette after DnD to GUI designer. Workaround : restart of the IDE.
I'm not sure if this is exactly the same, but I've seen this also in Projects/Files view - behavior that I'm not able to scroll down/up..scrolling gets "settled" in the middle of the window.
The palette case above is reproducible according to Tomas.
Stando, try debugging it and get details about the cause. With the details it can be filed to Java team, or workarounded probably.
The scrolling is caused by java.awt.dnd.DropTarget.DropTargetAutoScroller. That class is responsible for scrolling a tree/list when something is dragged over it. For some reason the timer isn't reset when the item is dropped or the drag is aborted. Seems like JDK bug since it works fine in other JDK versions.
I'm getting the same problem with the Projects view when running under Java:1.6.0_31; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 20.6-b01-415
It pretty much makes Netbeans unusably irritating to work with.
JDK bug filed.
Fix should appear in upcoming b08 of 7u10. Please verify.

This is particularly bad in this runtime environment:
