Description fommil 2012-07-12 15:50:48 UTC
This is with 7.2RC1.

I recently switched my GUI Editor preferences to have local variables. When I need to make a variable visible as a field, I deselect the 'Use Local Variable' just for that variable under the "Code" tab.

However, even though I have 'private' listed as my 'Variable Modifiers', this only seems to be respected on occasion. Specifically, the first time I change a variable from local into field, it appears with 'default' (i.e. package) visibility.

The 'Variable Modifiers' value should always be respected.
