Description Christian Lenz 2014-03-21 10:26:12 UTC
As you can see here:

click on a tag, press ctrl + r and it works for (X)HTML files only but not for plain XML Well-formed document :/.
Comment 1 Christian Lenz 2014-06-17 14:07:45 UTC
I figured out that if the root folder is public_html, all is fine, I can rename xml files too but if we have no root folder or we have a folder called public inside public_html or not inside, it doesn't matter, the renaming feature doesn't work anymore.
Comment 2 Christian Lenz 2014-07-04 06:29:39 UTC
The same for Remove surrounding tag, surround with tag. No hints are available.
Comment 3 Svata Dedic 2014-07-09 10:51:14 UTC
The feature was not planned or implemented for XMLs, changing to an enhancement.
Comment 4 Christian Lenz 2014-07-09 10:56:11 UTC
But what I figured out was that it's working for XML files, if I created a normal HTML5 project, if I changed the rootfolder to the main projectfolder or added a public folder to the plublic_html folder or whatever, its broken.

Refactoring doesn't work in a clean maven pom project inside pom.xml or settings.xml or other xml files.

FYI Code for HTML-Rename is based on CSL

Comment 7 Christian Lenz 2016-05-26 08:05:13 UTC
Can't refactor XML tags inside a layer.xml file inside a netbeans module too.
