No - After a little comparison, I'd say Mail is more tolerant about
the ever so slight moves of the cursor coming from the use of the
Intuos tablet. If I'm careful not to move at all in TextMate, it
works fine, but if I just work as usual, 1 out of 3 times, it will
deselect... In Mail, it just works perfectly...
I pulled out my old mouse from the box to compare and, as I
suspected, I don't have the same problem. I guess that's enough to
confirm my suppositions.
I suggested the idea of a pref for the app so that people who like
the default behavior won't see any modification as a regression.
Although the problem might not effect a majority of the TextMate
users (how many people use tablets for everything on their
computer?), it is still a very fundamental part of the feature set.
That's why I believe it deserves a little attention (read: "slider" :)
I'm currently using Textmate for a work-related
project. I collaborate with my boss, usually working
on the same files during the day. All files are
located on a server at work, so usually I edit them in
vim over ssh. Well the project has gotten too big and
I've been using textmate and mounting the remote drive
in the terminal using:
'su mount -o -P remote.server:/remote_dir
Now that mounts the files just fine and I can edit
them using textmate. BTW, the shell 'tm' is infintely
useful to me.
Now I keep having to type in my admin password
everytime I've been editing a file for a good amount
of time. This is getting kind've annoying and can't
seem to solve the problem with keychain. Is there any
ideas you guys might have so I don't have to keep
typing in my admin password to write to remote files?
Here's a snapshot of the problem:
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How feasible would it be to set hooks like "on save", or "on close
project" etc. to TM? I.E. I'd like to run a command to sort all of my
import statements in files of type source.java, something like that.

I'd like to bind a (different) key to the "next file tab"
function. Can someone tell me what the appropriate string
to use in the defaultKeyBinding.dict file is?
Apologies once more if this is a stupid question--I'm
still learning my way around Mac OS/X.
I'm having problems with my e-mails not showing up on TextDrive
hosted ML's, so yet another test here.

Are there any plans to make TextMate free and open source?
The benefits of this would include:
* Having multiple developers voluntarily fixing bugs
* Bugs get zapped quicker
* Features can get added faster (after volunteer developers are
* Everyone gets to see under the hood
* If someone doesn't like something, he can create a branch of
TextMate, and this can also serve as a test branch for the trunk
* Being open source is the ultimate sign of self-confidence in your
software's security and stability.
And how you can still profit:
* Google Ads
* Technical support
* Donations and funding from individuals and organisations relying on
I mean no disrespect to Aaron and the other guys at Macromates. I'm
suggesting this because it might actually improve TextMate without
incurring a loss on its developers. And after Mozilla Firefox's
success, I believe that anything is possible.
Just my 2 cents. Please correct me if I'm out of line. Either way, I
plan to keep on using TextMate after the demo runs out. :) Everytime I
use TextMate I'm reminded why Mac OS X applications rock.
I want to do Subversion checkout for the bundles but I have some
cutsom setups in HTML and Markdown bundles. I have moved the newly
created entries to the bundle named Ivan. Am I right to assume this
only way to avoid SVN bundle checkout overwriting your setup?
Or any bundles in ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate will overrule
the ones in /Library/Application Support/Textmate. What is the
precedence for the location of the bundles? In other words, which
bundles will TextMate use if the there are multiple copies exists in

I'm trying to extend it to autocomplete to <? ?> and <% %>. Example,

I think I've requested this before, but I'm a Taurus, so I'm
requesting it again. :)
I would love to have the ability to at least set the font size,
possibly even the font face, and ideally even allow/disallow syntax
highlighting when printing.
Turning on/off syntax highlighting would be great because people with
black & white printers probably want it off, but folks with color
printers might want it on. Setting the type size would be great
because I like to save paper, and by default TextMate prints way, way
too large. And it would be nice to set a different font, because I
often set my screen font bolder than I want my print font.
Just a humble request. Thanks!
