Should be available in Properties files as well

Currently the menu item is only available in the context menu of a Java file

But I think it makes sense to also add this to the context menu of a properties file (as properties files only support ISO-8859-1 encoding)

Does what it says in the box. If you don't need it you won't see the point. If you do need it, you will nevermore wonder why the moron developer put too many spaces in the regex.

Re: Why doesn't it show up inside NetBeans?

Hi tkellerer.
First of all, thanks for your comment.
I this version it's not possible to turn off the confirmation. I'll see if I create a way for the user to turn it off or if I remove it at all.
I do not know why it is not listed as an update.
Regards, Jean.

Why doesn't it show up inside NetBeans?

The tool is indeed very nice. Can I turn off the confirmation "Do you really want to do this?"

I wonder why the Plugin Manager in NB 6.0 (RC2) does not list this plugin although the plugin portal is listed as an update center in the settings (and is enabled)

Excellent tool. Very useful.
I used in m10 of the 6.0 and the RC1.
