Description David Kaspar 2010-03-09 09:54:55 UTC
Imagine the following code-template:

for (Object ${x default="item"} : ${y default="items"}) {

I would like to specify that the "items" should be edited before editing "item" parameter since its name may be derived from the name of "items" parameter.

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,
NetBeans IDE 8.2 Release Boss
