I'm new on the list, so sorry for stating the obvious.
The documentation of TextMate is terrible.
After using TextMate for some time, and struggling with many features, a
collegue pointed that there is some documentation at
However, there is no link to this URL. Please make a link to this page
from the home page. Now, please.
Thanks. What? You haven't done so? Stop reading then! Please do it
*NOW*, before other people waste their precious time.
I had to find the function of multiple functions (e.g. how DragCommands
work, that they only work with file, not URL's, how tab triggers work,
etc. etc.) by Googling and reading earlier posts on the mailing list. I
really could have saved a lot of time if I knew earlier that there was
some documentation out there. In fact I strongly recommend to add a menu
item in the Help menu which directly links to this documentation, and
release a minor update :-)
I just started reading the docs, and here is some first comments:
Please change the order of the paragraphs "Selecting Text" and "Editing
modes" on the "Working with Text" page. "Editing Modes" discusses the
column mode, which was introduced in "selecting text", so the later
paragraph must come first. In the current order, the "Editing Modes" was
hard to comprehend.
