Description _ gtzabari 2013-09-08 16:03:25 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201309060001)
Java: 1.7.0_40; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 24.0-b55
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.7.0_40-b40
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_CA (nb)
User directory: C:\Users\Gili\AppData\Roaming\NetBeans\dev
Cache directory: C:\Users\Gili\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache\dev

1. Open Project Properties -> Formatting
2. Shrink the dialog window vertically and horizontally
3. Notice how the middle pane (the one containing the options) gets cut off for most "categories" and in other categories ("ordering") the scrollbar is in the wrong place.

Expected behavior:

1. All "categories" should have two scrollbars, one for the dinner section and one for the preview window. The scrollbar should only be visible if the content does not fit in the viewport.
2. For the "Ordering" category, move the outer scrollbar into the "category" section so it shows up to the left of the "preview" section.
3. The UI should be consistent across all categories.

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,

This is still an issue in dev build 201607060002.

The original description contained a typo.

"dinner section" was meant to refer to the configuration section (the thing to the left of the preview pane).
