Description entonio 2009-07-22 15:18:27 UTC
There should be an option to sort the currently selected lines, e.g., by selecting:

    public A x;
    public B y;
    private A z;

and commanding 'sort', one would get:

    private A z;
    public A x;
    public B y;

I suggest that leading whitespace should be ignored by default and a 'reverse sort' could be available.

BTW, it [1] should help you.

BTW I'd rather leave this features for plugins, I'm using NetBeans for several years now and this is the first time I need it... not sure if it's worth cluttering the UI for everyone.
