Description gromit190 2017-03-09 07:22:04 UTC
Externally editing project files makes Netbeans show a popup-message asking if I want to reload the project. On this event, Netbeans steals window focus which is quite annoying tbh. Often I organize the project from a terminal window and while typing/pressing enter Netbeans suddenly steals focus so suddenly I've pressed enter on some prompt in Netbeans rather than in the terminal where it was supposed to go.

Please disable window focus stealing, nobody wants an IDE to have that behaviour.
