Description pgodeau 2002-06-25 11:12:19 UTC
I tried to reconfigure the abbreviation for "en"
in the XML editor, because this is a very common
word in French.
But each time I restart NB this abbreviation
is still here :-(
Apparently this bug is only for XML editor
(not Java).

I cannot reproduce in NetBeans 3.4 beta 2.
Comment 2 _ pkuzel 2002-06-28 21:44:18 UTC
You are right (event in 3.4),
All default abbreviations are allways added again.

Anyway I still hope that it is editor job to merge it properly (e.g. let
removed abbrevs are mapped to itself).
Comment 3 Miloslav Metelka 2002-07-10 12:11:27 UTC
Are the default abbreviations for the XML Editor specified through the
 xml file? If you look into the editor module sources in the layer.xml
file there is

<folder name="x-java">
  <file name="Settings.settings" url="JavaOptions.settings"/>
  <folder name="Defaults">
    <file name="abbreviations.xml" url="XMLs/DefaultAbbrevs.xml"/>
    <file name="macros.xml" url="XMLs/DefaultMacros.xml"/>
    <file name="keybindings.xml" url="XMLs/DefaultKeyBindings.xml"/> 

for the java abbreviations (the "text" and "Editors" parent folders
specification is ommited here).
Could you please check that?
Comment 4 _ lkramolis 2002-07-10 15:55:24 UTC
I tried it and it looks that <Defaults> does not work for Java too.
Try to change 
XMLs/DefaultAbbrevs.xml and you will not see any change. Default
abbreviations are still used from

But it works if the abbreviations.xml file is directly in x-java (not
under Defaults) folder.

   just user's view:
I changed cn->continue abbreviation in Java editor to cn1->continue1
and restarted IDE, and it works as expected (the cn is not an
abbreviation and cn1 is).
Comment 6 _ lkramolis 2002-07-17 14:18:38 UTC
Mato explained me that it is necessary to have both (java and xml)
versions of abbreviation.
Comment 7 _ lkramolis 2002-07-17 14:59:00 UTC
This will be fixed by issue 24366 integration.

Resolved for 3.4.x or earlier, no new info since then -> closing.
