I started a new session after the latest IDE patch. In a maven project, I refactored a static inner class out of the good then, now erroneous Java class which I then moved into a separate package. Nothing special. The error icon is shown in the projects window but the editor does not have any error badges.

I have always been thinking that there must be a way to clean a project from the IDE perspective not just Maven. Eclipse IDE can do this. I get an error like this once or twice every week, and there is no resolution other than deleting the IDE cache. When after so many years, will the Netbeans team start acknowledging that the IDE is not perfect, and that in such cases there needs to be a cleanup procedure which is not as radical as clearing the cache an re-starting the IDE. 

This entails the downloading of all Maven indexes. Takes an hour in my case.

Changed priority from 2 to 3. I could recover by re-starting the IDE.

This still happens with version 8.2

When I build a maven project then errors are flagged in the output, but the editor does not highlight them.

Interestingly, the editor tab has an error icon, but the editor window does not contain any red error badges in the right gutter, no other markers, except some SCM highlights, in my case Git.

The problem fixes itself after an IDE re-start.

I did some refactoring such as renaming methods and removing methods, but in a very normal, slow and controlled way.

There are log entries that advise to add the log file to bug 112566

This is definitely hard to reproduce.
