Description g.mann 2016-10-13 14:15:09 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.2 (Build 201609300101)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_101
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.101-b13

Reproducibility: Happens every time

Python Plugin manually installed, using Darcula Theme (also a plugin)

  * Open NetBeans
  * Click Tools>Settings>Options>Fonts & Colors
  * Change the language to Python
  * Change the foreground colors of the FALSE, TRUE, and NONE categories
  * Apply settings
  * Restart program

  The colors for the Python keywords FALSE, TRUE, and NONE changes to desired color, but when NetBeans restarts, they are reset to their default.

  The colors for the Python keywords should change, and the setting should be permanent.

Not all the settings are like this. The Python category "Mark Occurrences" does not reset, but stays the same way I set it every time. As do the C++ categories "Keyword" and "Keyword Directive".

I don't think so.

Their problem: duplicating a profile causes category inheritance issues.

My problem: on startup, manually changed category settings revert back to default (not all, but some see initial post).

I would like to try that build mentioned in the other bug, when will it be available as a mainstream program (not a development build).
