Your example speaks of a no-longer supported browser for an abandoned
(for years now) operating system. I'm all for supporting a large
audience, but I'm going to be blown away if we're talking about %1 of
typical traffic here. That seems like a minimal risk hit to take, if
you ask me.

It can be. Remember, TextMate is all about automation. Build a
command and turn conversion and upload into a single keystroke.

i've been searching the main site, the wiki and the list - but can't
seem to find a bundle that does reasonable xsl syntax highlighting.
did i miss something, is there something worked on, the html/xml
bundles from b15 are just to simple for doing real xsl files. this is
the only thing that holds me back from buying a licence...
thanks for your answers
A colleague recently upgraded to 1.1b15, and since doing that she cant get
project windows to appear, they are listed as being open under the window
menu, but cannot be seen onscreen - is this a known problem? She isnt
running Tiger, whereas I am and have no problem with b15, could this have
something to do with it?

This is my first post. I just wanna say: Wow! This thing looks
truly awesome! But... for those of us doing non-western and non-
UTF-8 encoding web pages, it's unusable.
Oh please please PLEASE add support for Shift-JIS and EUC-JP! (japanese)

My favorite text editor on Windows is UltraEdit, and it has a columnar
editing mode which is useful surprisingly often.
I am pretty sure I understand how TextMate's columnar editing works
(option-arrow to create column selection, then type). However, having
a columnar mode makes the feature much more useful.
When in the columnar mode, any cursor movement stays in the mode, and
shift-arrow does what you'd expect it to: shift-up/down keeps the same
columns selected but adds/removes the next line while shift-left/right
adds/removes the next column for all lines.
When you have one or more columns selected, typing replaces the
contents with the character just pressed, but keeps the same number of
Typing with 0 selected columns enters that key on every row.
Delete removes all the selected columns, yielding 0 selected columns.
Paste enters the clipboard contents into the first row of the selected
honestly, I'd prefer that it pasted to all selected rows.
I think the primary benefit of a columnar mode is the ease of keyboard
selection of the column range.
Additionally, UltraEdit has a feature where you can analyze a
delimited file and automagically convert it to a fixed width file,
which lends itself to columnar editing. When done, you can then
convert it back to a delimited format.
The two features work together to make it great for editing flat files
of both fixed and delimited flavors.
I'm attaching a screenshot of the fixed scan dialog in ultraedit for
illustration of the feature.
It's not the best designed UI ever, but:
x The current file is assumed to be delimited.
x The scan button analyzes the current file's lines to try to determine
the max length needed for each field based on the options selected
(which are all settings except "Keep Delimiter" and "Field Widths").
x Based on this analysis, the Field Widths textbox is populated with
each field's width. If you know the widths needed, you can skip the
scan step and just enter your widths in the Field Widths box directly.
x Once you're happy with the Field Widths values, you click Convert to
translate it to fixed width. The "Keep Delimiter" option determines
whether the original delimiters are stripped from the resulting fixed
The Convert To Delimiter dialog is much simpler (screenshot excluded);
it just takes the last Field Widths used for conversion to fixed, and
slaps on the given delimiter at those lengths.
Sorry for the length, but I think these are very useful features which
could be implemented (with a better UI) in TextMate, and I'd be happy
to see them included.
I just added myself to the list.
My name is Andreas Wahlin, aged 25 from Sweden. I fancy myself as a
such things. I've really just began to discover the rich world of wed
development and try to immerse myself in standards, AJAX and other
buzzwords. I bought a Mac just a few months back, being totally fed
up by windows and not managing to switch to (Suse) Linux. To be
honest, I haven't really switched over to TextMate just yet, but
something clicked with beta15 and I'll probably be doing the switch
real soon, TextMate seems to be heading in the correct way so I
really see it as a future investment!
TextMate 1.1b15 is great, especially the new Theme editor which
dynamically updates any opened files. MUCH easier to make adjustments
Unrelated question: is there a specific reason why 'Show invisibles'
does not show spaces, like in... HEY, like in SubEthaEdit for
example ? ;)

i just installed b15 and updated to the bundles svn to 1359 (and
additionally did a fresh checkout, to make sure) and now markdown
doesn't show any syntaxcoloring at all, regardless of the selected
anyone else? or should I just wait for an update of the bundles

After grabbing b15 and copying over the utilities, I'm getting a weird
error when running `tm` from the command-line:
RegisterProcess failed (error = -50)
If I fully qualify `tm`, it works:
Strangely enough, `which` says it can't even find `tm`:
ntalbott@jacob:~/svn/sandbox/selector_namespaces$ which tm
no tm in ~/bin /opt/local/bin /usr/local/bin [...]
`tm -v` works:
ntalbott@jacob:~/svn/sandbox/selector_namespaces$ tm -v
tm 1.4 (2005-06-16)
ntalbott@jacob:~/svn/sandbox/selector_namespaces$ ~/bin/tm -v
tm 1.4 (2005-06-16)
Any ideas? Any more info I can provide?
