Description swpalmer 2012-10-04 18:13:17 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201210040002)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_07
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.3-b01

I wanted to find where I had used \u2122 (TM) to replace it with \u0AE  (R)
The search doesn't find the actual ASCII strings that are in the properties file.
Also, the NetBeans editor (both in text mode and the table mode that is sometimes used for .properties files) only shows the final unicode character, making it hard to use the editor to replace it.

1. Open file
2. write \u2122
3. close window
4. click edit file

Expected behavior : I will see \u2122
Actual behavior: There is no \u2122 but (TM)

In java file, you have expected behavior.

It is ok - showing TM in table mode (open property file), but not in edit mode. And also it is not ok to saving it with (TM). It should save it as \u2122
