No. My e(fx)clipse internal preview naturally has all those informations
because it knows the classpath of the project.

We'd need from the SceneBuilder people an API (once we directly embed
the editor) and/or an interchange format to tell them where to search
for classes.

So if we (Eclipse,Netbeans,SceneBuilder) could work on an interchange
format like

  <entry src="C:/bla/bla/test.jar" type="jar" />
  <entry src="C:/bla/bla/bin" type="folder" />
  <entry src="C:/bla/blo/bin" type="folder" />

this could help you.

It is very easy for IDEs to provide something like this.
