I recently upgraded from 7.2 to 8.0. It looks like this bug was fixed, when i drag and drop a .js file i get a <script> tag, when i drag and drop any other file i get an <a> tag.

HOWEVER i want to open files in NetBeans via drag and drop. In 7.2 i could drag a php file into an open netbeans window and it would open the file in a new tab for editing. In fact, i also edit .js and .css files in NetBeans because of its highlighting and i expected to be able to open them this way as well.

Drag-to-open has always worked AFAICR and it is part of the NetBeans File Drag and Drop UI Specification from .

But now it is broken.

Is it possible to revert this behaviour?

Or disable it via an option?
