Description dusty 2017-03-21 16:34:17 UTC
If I have a code like:

let x = 2
console.log('x: '+x)

and I put the cursor under the "x", netbeans correctly automatically highlights all the x instances, ans hence the x on both lines. I can also refactor the name correctly.

If instead I define it as "const" or "var", for example:

const x = 2
console.log('x: '+x)

netbeans does not highlight them, even if it should.

Also, I suppose for the same problem, I'm unable to correctly refactor its name: all the usages are not renamed correctly

I verified the problem both in NB 8.2 and netbeans-dev-201703210002
