Re: Module dependence problem

Yes, that version installed alright (forgot to mention, that I have NetBeans 6.8).

I dropped a piece of source code to Word, and noticed, that the font of the text was non-proportional after paste !?

And another note: could this 'Copy as RTF format' action have some default keyboard accelerator/short cut ?

Anyway, this seems quite handy and useful plugin, thanks !

Re: Module dependence problem

Unfortunately, this module is a known problem and for each version of Netbeans you need a different version of my plugin (compiled under specific version of Netbeans). Do you tried to install this version of plugin?:
Maybe this is your version?
If plugin still doesn't work. the only solution is to download and compile the source of plugin yourself under your version of Netbeans (it is easy, without any problems). In the next week I willl do a review of netbeans versions and recompile the plugin under specific new versions of Netbeans.

Module dependence problem

I changed this "org.netbeans.modules.editor.settings.storage/1 > 200910212001" manually in the module manifest in the ndm bundle. Didn't seem to have any effect. As a matter of fact, I still get the same error message, when installing this plugin:

"The plugin Editor Settings Storage is requested in implementation version 200910212001."

Is there some kind of "installed plugins" cache somewhere ?!?

module dependence problem

can't you write org.netbeans.modules.editor.settings.storage/1 > 200910212001 in the module manifest. that would allow to install the module on more recent releases much more easily.

Cannot install

I tried to install the plugin on NetBeans IDE 6.8 (Build 200912041610) and got the following message
"The plugin Editor Settings Storage is requested in implementation version 200910212001".
