Description Vladimir Riha 2013-01-25 10:42:56 UTC
As I find typing short class selector faster than looking for it in the expanded list, I simply typed already existing selector and confirm it. As a result, the rule was inserted at the end of css file although there was already the same rule. Could there be a check and if target file already contains this rule, do not create it again? 

To reproduce:
- run html file
- invoke Edit CSS Rule dialog from Navigator and add some already defined class to element
=> target css contains 2 same rules

I cannot reproduce the behaviour - if the class already exists in selected stylesheet it is not added again. Please verify.
Comment 2 Vladimir Riha 2013-08-28 13:21:08 UTC
Still reproducible for me:
 - have css with class rule "test" and below ID rule "foo"
 - in HTML file, select e.g. body, right click and select Edit CSS Rules
 - type name of new class selector "test"
 - confirm
=> css file contains 2 same selectors
