The Miscellaneous category contains all of the options that did not fit neatly into one of the above categories.
Indent Level: Specifies the number of spaces that make up a "tab" in DrJava. This is used for auto-indenting.
Recent Files List Size: Specifies how many of your most recently open files are displayed when you open the "File" menu on the toolbar.
Maximum Size of Browser History: Specifies how many source code locations are stored in the browser history. This history can be used to go back and forth, like in a web browser.
The Checkboxes: Specify a variety of options that are personal preference:
Automatically Close Block Comments: Puts a "*/" after every "/**" or "/*" you type, so you don't have to remember to close the comment.
Allow Assert Keyword in Java 1.4: Passes a flag to the 1.4 compiler that specifies the assert keyword is okay.
Keep Emacs-style Backup Files: Tells DrJava to automatically make backups of files such that file file.java would be backed up as file.java~. This is a nice option, because it provides an additional level of protection against lost code.
Clear Console After Interactions Reset: Makes the Interactions Pane clear when it is reset. After a reset, any previous objects built in the Interactions Pane have been lost and must be recreated. Clearing the console helps you remember that you need to recreate everything.
Require test classes in projects to end in "Test": Whether to require that JUnit test classes in projects end in "Test". If this is enabled, classes that do not end in "Test" will not be considered JUnit tests when in project mode.
Put the focus in the definitions pane after find/replace: If this option is checked, the focus will be put in the definitions pane after using "Find". If this is not checked, then the focus will remain in the Find/Replace tab.
Forcefully Quit DrJava: On some systems (namely tablet PCs), DrJava does not shut down properly when quit. Select this option to remedy this problem.
Enable Remote Control: Java's "remote control" allows other applications to control certain aspects of DrJava, for example what file is displayed. This feature is also necessary if you want to double-click on a .java file to open the file in an existing instance of DrJava.
Remote Control Port: Selects the port that Drjava uses for its remote control.
Follow File Delay: Specifies the number of milliseconds that have to pass before DrJava will update a "Follow File" window again.
Maximum Lines in "Follow File" Window: Specifies the number of of lines that a "Follow File" window may contain. If a file has more than this many lines, only the end of the file will be displayed.
