Some default settings I use in Netbeans:
Because I want to see my .htaccess-Files in the Project-View, dont want to see the .git-directory but want to see .gitignore for example I change the Patter used to hide files in the Projects-View.
Tools -> Options -> Miscellaneous -> Files -> Files Ignored by the IDE -> Ignored Files Pattern
Since I prefer dark themes for my OS and my tools, I am using the Twilight-Theme for Netbeans.
Only the default-font I change back to Monospaced.
Tools -> Options -> Import -> Netbeans_Twilight_Theme.zip
Restart Netbeans and go to
Tools -> Options -> Fonts & Colors and Choose it from the Profile-Selection.
Netbeans supports following the currently in the editor opened file in the File-Tree of the project:
View -> Synchronize Editor With Views
Setting a short-cut for "Remove Trailing Spaces"(In most cases i forget to use it, but my ANT-Job does it later for me) to Shift + Ctrl + R in Tools -> Options -> Keymap
Activating some Hints for PHP like "Variable might have not been initialized" or "Variable does not seem to be used in its scope":
Tools -> Options -> Editor -> Hints
Check or Uncheck the wanted Hints.
When working with big projects or while running something else in background I often turn off those Hints because my notebook is old and slow (P4 Mobile 1.73 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, 120GB Drive @ 5400 RPM running Ubuntu 9.04) and it can be a pain to work with it all features turned on.
