Description K__P 2011-12-17 00:05:48 UTC
Entering: -overview "${basedir}/${src.dir}/doc-files/overview.html"
into: Project Properties/Build/Ducumenting/Additional Javadoc Options

works on one machine, but when inspecting the string after building javadoc reveals that the ${basedir} and ${src.dir} properties have been replaced with their values. So building the javadocs on different machines requires to manually adjust the path to overview.html.

Would be nice if the properties would not be replaced.

If you are using property substitutions, you are advised to edit directly rather than using the Properties dialog.
