Known Issues Versions 1.0.x:
  • Update 19 November 2002: It was reported that this plug-in does not save any files under "IBM WebSphere® Studio Application Developer" Version 5. I cannot guarantee whether this plug-in works under any version of "IBM WebSphere® Studio Application Developer". See bug 634876 for further information.
    Update 09 February 2003:: Fixed in version 1.0.4.

  • Shortcuts for "Cut", "Copy" and "Paste" (Ctrl+x, c and v) currently do not work for the "Comment:" and "Value:" textfields of the main editor (it does indeed work in the dialogs). Use Shift+Del and Shift+Insert or rightclick the textfields and use the popup menus for the time being.

  • In this version file headers will be overwritten when saved. Future Versions will provide an additional textfield for the file header on top of the editor.

  • In this version only unique keys for properties are allowed. Future Versions will allow multiple properties (which are commented out) with identical keys.

  • No Undo and Redo (Ctrl+z, Ctrl+y) function currently implemented for the "Comment:" and "Value:" textfields of the main editor (it does indeed work in the dialogs).

  • I found no way to make "ColumnWeightData" work, so I used "ColumnPixelData" to lay out table columns. For the time being you will have to resize the table columns yourself after a property file is opened.
