I get errors when I try to RTF copy escape sequences for new line in the code. Please fix this error, otherwise it's a great plug-in! Thank you!

NetBeans 8.2 support?

I really like this plugin, but it fails to install in NetBeans 8.2. Any chance we could get an update to this plugin?

Failing conversion with international characters

The conversion problem described below occurs even in the case of accented letters (i.e. è) and the EUR symbol (€).

I downloaded the last version of netbeans yesterday and it shows the error when trying to install:

Algunos plugins necesitan que se instale el plugin Almacén de Configuraciones del Editor.
Se necesita el plugin Almacén de Configuraciones del Editor en la versión de implantación 201510222201.

¿Can you please check your module dependencies please?

Thanks for reporting

I've ticketed the issue about failing conversion on "\n". Will solve it in the new version.

Identified a "New Line" Error

I have isolated an error when copying Java code, I have a line of code as:


This causes the entire copy to fail and I have isolated it further to the \n

Until there is a resolution my workaround has been to manually copy everything but the \n

This is a painful process on larger sections of code. otherwise, I have not run into many issues with this and love the functionality!

Some bug here

This doesn't work with HTML code (no "Copy as RTF format" with right mouse click). With JavaScript or Java ok.
