according to the ISSUE http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=90522
I started to consolidate the option settings for these modules:
The main idea is to remove all Advanced Options settings which we have in
NetBeans now. The necessary options should be placed into the new panel placed
in the Miscellaneous. For this is necessary to prepare some short description
of new options (in the ideal case to do UI Specification). I will be
consolidate UI design for you together. Please, let me know if you are able to
do it and try to tell me the time frame in which we can suppose be ready with UI

I've written up a little summary of what editor related settings we have and
what I think we should do in terms of migrating them to the normal
Tools-Options. Can you please review this? Thank you.

Great! Be sure I will help you.
Thank you for cooperation
I've updated the document and added mockups for the panels in the Editor
category. Also it looks like we won't need a new panel for print settings. Can
we have another review, please - perhaps via email or this issue?

moving opened issues from TM <= 6.1 to TM=Dev
I'm trying to clarify in the Summary field what's the goal of this issue.
When issue #90403 is fixed the whole 'Editor Settings' node (and all its subnodes) will be part of a deprecated autoload
module and separated from the editor infrastructure. Modules will have a chance to remove their BaseOptions and
Settings.Initializer subclasses and remove their dependency on this deprecated autoload. When all modules do that the
autoload will not be loaded and the 'Editor Settings' node will disappear.
On the other hand we might want to be a little more aggressive and even remove the 'Editor Settings' node from the
autoload module. That way even if there are modules using the old settings infrastructure the node will not be shown. Ideas?
See also issue #123346. There are no editor related settings in Tools-Options. The work on the new UI spec for
Tools-Options is being monitored in issue #137318.
