Description ulfzibis 2005-04-09 22:43:00 UTC
IDE settings are not completly imported automatically when starting qbuild
200503291306 first time

It was the first time, that taking over the configuration of the existing
4.0-installation was processed. Great! (I don't know if it works when I change
netbeans_default_userdir="${HOME}/.netbeans/dev" to "${APPDATA}/.netbeans/dev";
see Issue 49813)

But not all options have been taken over:
- favorites
- element selector combobox in editor
- UI mode settings

This issue was reported in NetCAT 4.1 program.

Comment 2 ulfzibis 2005-04-23 21:33:34 UTC
On starting NetBeans 4.1 RC1 I was asked, if I want to import the settings of
NetBeans 4.0.
But what's about importing the settings of NetBeans 4.1 dev ?

There should be a choice between 4.0, 4.1 dev and all other installed versions.
Comment 3 rmatous 2005-09-21 09:31:27 UTC
There is supported just import from previous version of NetBeans whereas not all
settings are unavoidably imported (which are imported and which not depends on
module owners). Import for settings of dev builds isn't supported.
