I'm evaluating Tetxtmate and I found a behavior that I'm trying to
see if it is a feature or a bug.
The caret position doesn't match where the character gets inserted.
if I position the caret inside the parentheses and I start typing the
character will be inserted to the outside the parentheses
I tried it on 2 systems and iMac G5 and a PowerPc Dual G5. same behavior
TextMate version 1.5 (906)
I like the feature set of the editor and would love to use it on
project, but unless I find a way to place the characters at the caret
position is would be really hard to use it..
The patch below for the Diff Syntax modifies it so that diffs
produced by the Perforce bundle are properly recognized and syntax-
BTW aren't the shortcuts for the commands in the diff bundle
incorrect? They all use 'Shift-Ctrl-Alt-D', which I thought was were
reserved to select a syntax (Diff Syntax did not have a shortcut
assigned, the patch below includes that). Shouldn't the command use
Sorry if this is a FAQ, but I couldn't find reference to the problem on
the wiki, so I thought I'd post to the mailing list.
I's using Textmate 1.5 (build 906) under OS X 10.3.9. Whenever I copy
some text to the clipboard, the program crashes. This happens
consistently, whether I'm using new documents or existing files.
Can anyone help?

hi all and alan -- thanks for a great product.
One suggestion: I think a split pane ala mail.app would be an
improvement over the current drawer. Use of a drawer implies to me,
an optional part of the interface, but when working on a project, the
file list is hardly option, in my opinion. Is there any here that
opens and closes the drawer repeatedly to access their project
listing? A drawer makes window resizing a two step operation -- you
have to first position your window to accommodate your drawer before
doing the resize.. Try it, you'll see what I mean. I think really,
managing the use of space *inside* a window is much more natural than
managing it outside.

This, I am sure, is super newbie basic material, but somehow it
eludes me with tenacity...
What's the shortcut to select text within tags in html? Let's say,
for instance, to select "I am a paragraph" in:
<p>I am a paragraph</p>
I'm ashamed to ask that, so go easy on me, thanks ;)
It seems TextMate fails to notice a c++ function definition if I
write it like this:
void * a,
void * b,
void * x )
but all on one line works fine:
foo( void * a, void * b, void * c )
Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a way for me to fix this
myself or should I wait for an update?

I just checked in a new Scheme language bundle into the svn
repository if anyone's interested.
The bundle is really just syntax coloring at the time being. I cannot
find a working solution for indentation with what TM currently
offers, but maybe someone else can, or we'll get some new nifty
feature into the editor someday that allows me to solve the problem.
Anyway, enjoy! And if you haven't ever programmed in Scheme, please
do! It's a really elegant and fun.

I was just editing some embedded SQL today and though of an
Modify the new Edit In TextMate global function to work with
selections, and work inside of textmate.
The flow would go something like:
I'm in an asp.net document
I select some embedded SQL
I hit the 'Edit In TextMate' command
It opens my selection in a new textmate window (saved as a file in a
I edit my text like crazy
Save & Close
My original document shows and it replaces my selection with the
contents of that temporary file
This would be SO totally hip!
I'm sure I could whip something like this up as a command, but I
think native support for it might be better.
It might just be easier to modify the global command to either select
all & activate or use an existing selection and activate.
Then just make it work IN textmate and you're set!
Thanks again for completely changing my life for the better! (the
coding section, anyway)
I LOVE the Edit In TextMate action!!!
I'm absolutely loving TextMate - $50 seems insane for a text editor
until you use it. :)
I'm doing a lot of work with Subversion, and want to be able to
commit a change and upload it to the server as easily as saving a
file. Is there any way to modify the bundle so that it saves the
frontmost window without any dialog asking for a summary? I'll still
use the dialog sometimes but I don't want to have it pop up all of
the time. I realize I can just press enter to move on, but I'm
looking for the fastest possible solution, as I save and refresh
files quite often.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have!
