Description Hubert_Grzeskowiak 2016-03-08 09:24:10 UTC
This is merely a "nice to have" feature request that would make the heart of a web dev melt.

While editing existing HTML you often have to switch an element for another. To do this in HTML you need to change both the starting and the end tag. Netbeans offers a really nice shortcut for this: using "Refactor -> Rename" (Ctrl+R) on either tag will also edit the corresponding one. I wish this was default behaviour whenever I edit a tag - without having to press Ctrl+R every time.

Thanks and keep up the good work.
