Description everflux 2013-10-09 20:10:45 UTC
Add a button "Prepare Bugreport in Clipboard" (or something like this) that  can just be clicked and it copies relevant information in concise format to the cliboard (JDK/Netbeans like currently, Distribution / cpu / memory / screen size
in addition for example) for reporting bugs.

I would appreciate it, if it could anonymize data like the user name when it appears in the data. (For example netbeans cache/installation directory).

Possibly something like "Copy to clipboard" name of the action/button would imply wider scope of usage?
Comment 2 Marian Mirilovic 2013-10-14 09:49:22 UTC
No plans to do that, actually if you are willing to report bug directly from the IDE, the relevant information will be a part of the report.

This is for when you do not report directly from the IDE but instead use the webpage to do the report, it is Always cumbersome to get all the info along, a simple button that puts the needed info into the clipboard can't be that hard to fix...
