Posted by misias on Sep 24, 2014 Check out if this one works fine: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/56173/?show=true

man! I wish I had seen this on wednesday 25th , would've saved me 3 days of headaches looking everywhere on the web for some
'Editor Settings Storage' or 'Editor Library' plugins,
that were nowhere to be found.

works pretty great with new version, all colors of all Java netbeans configurable Categories (constructors, fields, local variables, etc. ) do get captured and carried!
the (underlined, etc.) effects that netbeans allows, get lost though (but certainly makes sense as i don't think RTF format allows underlining, or any other effects, in a different color, which is what netbeans does..)

Plugin is broken after updating to NB 8.0.1

Same issue as zhyi - any idea when this plugin will be updated?

Doesn't Work with NetBeans 8.0.1

While installing, I'm told that the Editor Settings Storage plugin is required, but I've no idea where to install that plugin.
