(Tested on netbeans 7.2.1)
NetBeans does partially solve the problem by using a User.properties file, but it fails to identify tags for c/c++ files.
1st Method: Change the Author property in Templates
It is a direct solution but changes should be made for each template.
2nd Method: Using User.properties file:
- Click on: Tools –> Template (from the toolbar)
- You should get a Template Manager window. Now click on the Settings button.
- User.properties file should now be open. Un-comment the last line and insert your name.
- What ever name you choose in this file overrides the default name(system name) given during initialization.
3rd Method: For a more permanent solution :-
- Go to your NetBeans installation directory
C:\Program Files\NetBeans X.Y.Z\
- Go into the etc folder and open netbeans.conf file using any editor (advanced text editors Notepad++ would format the text in windows and make it more comfortable)
- Find the netbeans_default_options key
- Now add the following to this line
- Save the configuration file and start NetBeans
(Tested on Eclipse Juno)
Changing ‘eclipse.ini’ file:
- Go to Eclipse folder (which has the eclipse.exe file)
- Open ecilpse.ini file
- Add this after -vmargs option:
- Save the file and start Eclipse
IntelliJ IDEA 13 Community Edition
(Tested on IntelliJ IDEA 13 CE)
Changing the ‘idea.exe.vmoptions’ file:
- Go to your IntelliJ installation folder
C:\Program Files(x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition...
- Go into bin folder
- Open the file named idea.exe.vmoptions (or idea64.exe.vmoptions) and add the following property
- Save the file and you are done.
