Introduction

A new drop down button is added to the editor's toolbar. All parts of the entire file path (all parent directories and the file itself) of the active file are shown in the drop down menu. Several built-in actions are available:

  • Open in System
  • Explore In System
  • Copy File Path
  • Copy Qualified Name (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Q)
  • Select in Projects
  • Select in Files
  • and more...

Custom Actions

In addition to the built-in actions, the user can define custom actions in the Cool Editor Actions options panel. Write your custom commands (e.g. zipping a file or folder) and bring it in relation to a specific file type (or the general file and folder type).

Dependency to Java subsystem

Hi mariusz_m
Thank you for your comment. Yes, since V1.6 ("Copy Qualified Name" action) there are some dependencies to java related modules. I see... with your environment this is a problem. With a modularization I could solve this problem. Please use V1.5.1, this release should work for you.

Java subsystem required?

I'v been using this plugin for a long time. But the latest version require probably all Java plugins for NB, while I am using C++ version only.
Any chance to change it or I must forget about this plugin?

Select in system

"Select in system" does not work under FreeBSD.

In "Explore from here" plugin the target program (konsole, dolphin, anything else) can be specified in Options menu, and this works fine in any OS.

It will be cool if it will be possible to configure "Cool NetBeans Editor Actions" same way.

"Select in projects" and "Select in files" works fine, and it is really cool actions, thanks!
