Description mclaassen 2007-02-02 18:45:38 UTC
In our configurations, we often use a lot of options.  It would be nice if, in
the configuration dialog, there would be a way to show more information.  

I think the older versions on NB had a way (like shift-F2 maybe) to popup a
window with a text area in it for typing multi-line content.  I think it would
be helpful to have a way to see more characters at a time.

I am not sure if it would be better to just show a small entry field and then
allow for a shift-f2 as mentioned above, or to just show more lines in the dialog.  

That being said, once the configuration is made, it is really only a matter of
editing the properties file that is created.  Doing this, the whole netbeans
properties editor is at my disposal.
