Is there a way to restore the default palette?

If you delete some category or beans from the default Palette content (either accidentally or intentionally), you can restore it as follows:

  1. Exit the IDE.
  2. Go to your user directory and go down to the config/FormDesignerPalette/ subdir. Under this directory, the files or categories deleted from the default palette content are presented as empty files with _hidden suffix in their names.
  3. Delete these _hidden files to let the palette categories and items appear again in the IDE.
  4. Delete entire config/FormDesignerPalette/ directory to completely restore default content of the palette.

If you want to restore the default ordering or visibility of the palette items and categories, then delete the config/Preferences/org/netbeans/spi/palette/CommonPaletteSettings/formdesignerpalette.properties file under the user directory.
