I would like to enable auto popup completion window for HTML but not for Java. Thus I have disabled it for All Languages and enabled it for HTML. But it has to be enabled in *both* sections for completion window to appear when editing HTML files.

I think the option for All Languages should have no effect when editing HTML files, because it has a separate option.

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 8.0.2 (Build 201411181905)

It is implemented in such way that you can disable auto completion just for html, or you disable all auto-completion. Enabling html auto completion is useless when all auto completion is disabled in all languages.

I don't see a way how can I change this from html editor. It should be changed in  CompletionImpl:350 in Editor Code Completion (CompletionSettings.getInstance(getActiveComponent()).completionAutoPopup()) is blocking auto completion. 

I am sending this back to editor completion.

Milutin, if you want the HTML option "Auto Popup Completion Window" to "override" the same option in All Languages, just use the same key (SimpleValueNames.COMPLETION_AUTO_POPUP) instead of your own (HTML_COMPLETION_AUTOPOPUP_WINDOW) when storing your preferences in HtmlCompletionOptionsPanel. Value for HTML can be stored independently of the rest of the IDE languages then.
