Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201109070600)
Operating System = Mac OS X version 10.7.1 running on x86_64

According to my research, componentOrientation is the property you set to choose the alignment of the tabs for a JTabbedPane.  (tabPlacement is for which side it's on, but it defaults to centered.)  If I change the property from <default> to <null>, I get a crash (which I have reported separately).  If I click on the "...", I'm told that custom editing of this property is not supported.
