yeah, I know, it's me again ;-)
I'd like to point out, that it is exactly a tribute to how great and
useful TextMate is (for me) that all I'm requesting are such tiny
little nitpicky features, so I hope I don't come across as
anyway: I'd really like to have a quick, no-brains-involved method to
toggle between the textfield and the project drawer via the keyboard
- I do it a million times a day and I don't want to use the mouse for
it (RSI, anyone?)
currently i can use ctrl-tab to tab *out* of the text area (great!)
further ctrl-tabs cycle through the action widgets at the bottom
until it finally drops me off in the text area again.
while i can use shift-tab to get back immediately, this isn't very
economical IMHO to move back and forth quickly.
so, my proposition: ctrl-tab to toggle between textarea and project
drawer, shift-tab to cycle forward through textarea, projectdrawer
and widgets, and ctrl-shift-tab to cycle backwards
or any other alternative that allows me to toggle with one key-combo ;-)
I am running TextMate 1.1b5
I downloaded the Rails bundle from here:
I double clicked. It installed. I restarted TextMate. When I looked
in snippet there was no category for Rails. How can I get it to
Thanks for your help my friends.
I'd like to request, that the language display in the statusbar could
also act as a widget to change the current language, because often
the automatic detection can't come up with the correct language and
it would make an often-used feature more accessible without wasting
screen real-estate or otherwise cluttering things up.

ok, I just don't get it: *sometimes* when pressing the ctrl-shift-a
key I get the neato little popup with all the svn-related commands
(which is what I want) and *sometimes* I get the status popup (which
is usually *not* what I want).
I just can't seem to figure out the system behind it - or more
importantly how to make it *always* present the popup.
I just have to say, WOW. I get it, I have drunk the cool aid and I am in
heaven. I started using TextMate for a new project, I have been a faithful
beliver in the 'it doesn't suck' BBEdit for as long as I can remember (I
have CD's back to at least 3.0), but I think that app may begin to get more
and more idle time...
The power of this app, tied into the command line and other goodies is only
hurting my productivity in that I keep streamlining my work process, and
tuning it, and tweeking it, oh who knew a text editor could be FUN! Thank
you to every one who has contributed to the commands and snipits, and the
One question though, is there a way to print out a pretty (enough) list of
the snipit triggers for a particular syntax?
this is one app that is so worth registering. Wicked!
I hate whitespace at the end of lines or files, so I wondered if
there's a way to automatically remove those. I could probably define a
command to do this, but I still would have to start it manually.
IMO it would be nice if TextMate allowed running commands on certain
events, especially on saving the current document. This would not only
solve my problem, but would also allow other maybe useful automatisms
like automatically re-building a project on saving or something like
What do you think about this idea?
first: I know, I can adjust this locally myself - but then I'd have
to re-do that, everytime the XMLBundle gets updated (or - from my
understanding - my modifications would overrride any future updates
to the XML Bundle in which case I'd have to forego them...)
my request: pls include the following suffixes for the XML-Language:
the first three come from Zope development and AFAIK don't conflict
with any other suffixes.
I'm sending this to the list, because I couldn't figure out, who
'duff' is, the user committing the most recent changes to the bundle
best regards and thanks,
i am new to the list and have some problem with TextMate using version
Sometimes the project drawer collapses the view i.e. when i update my
local repository from a subversion module which i added to the drawer.
Is this a known bug and will this be fixed in the future? Or is there
already any hidden setting addressing this behaviour?
Thanks a lot for this great editor.
Seeing that b6 was out although unofficially, I've downloaded it, moved
away my ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate, put the svn checkout of the
latest bundles in /Library/Application Support/TextMate/ and...
Lotsa beeps going on on startup and all files are showed using the language
called 'Ruby on Rails' even though it is not a Rails project at all.
Nothing is highlighted of course.
Any idea? I did re-checkout from svn as the path has changed.

I'm obviously just not looking in the right place but can anyone tell me how
to type this character:
I've looked in the keyboard viewer and thought it was command+option+i but
that only shows the invisibles in TM. I've seen it in the Character palette
but would rather be able to type it instead of opening that palette each
Feel free to answer off list.
