It would be nice to be able to copy source code from NetBeans and paste it into
a presentation/rich text editor with its syntax highlighting intact. I suspect
all that's needed is to support rich text as a data flavor for our clipboard.
We already have print to html - it shouldn't be much more difficult.
Moving to the 'other' subcomponent.

BaseKit.CopyAction simply calls JTextComponent.copy(), which does all the magic. I suspect that adding another
DataFlavor would need to cooperate somehow with the implementation in JTC.copy().

Correct. The editor generates attributed character sequence which is then used for printing (either to a file or printer).
Maybe the solution is here:
Would it be interesting for the NetBeans sources?
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
Thanks for your cooperation,
