This is the first time ever I post something in the mailing list, and
I have to say that Texmate is an awesome tool, I have a crappy
English and stuff; anway, I have a problem with the blogging bundle
and I'm not really sure if this is the right place to discuss about
it, by the way I really love it and I've been using to replace ecto,
so the thing is... I can't tell if this is a bug or is not even
included in the features of the bundle but, when I try to set a date
different than the current one, and publish the post, the bundle just
changes back to the current. I have tested this on a Blogging
Markdown template, with a Wordpress setup.

What I want to do is have some of the SVN commands (not CVS, sorry
couldn't resist) operate on the selected directory in the project
drawer. It seems that some do and some don't. Quite possibly I am
just not doing something right to make it happen aswell.
SVN status is the command that springs to mind, despite my best
efforts, it always operates on the whole project. From memory, the
previous version I had (I currently have 1.5.1 (1100) and I only use
official releases) allowed me to do this by selecting the desired
directory in the project drawer and making sure the drawer had focus.
Any clues as to what I am doing wrong or is this how it works now?
I put together a [CTags.tmbundle] for easy double-click
installation in recent (cutting edge) TextMate versions.
The CTags bundle allows you to quickly look up function definitions,
variables etc. It uses the Exuberant CTags program to generate a list
of definitions, and presents any match for the current word when
Allan, if you give me access to the bundle repository I'll gladly
submit and maintain this bundle.

See my "Reload Preview Document" script:
I'm new to TextMate, I really like it and am using it mainly for
writing with latex.
I had usually set
until I ran into problems with texniscope in the combination with my
custom made bibliography style (which uses babel). Then I switched
TM_LATEX_VIEWER to preview, and that works ok, except, that I have to
close it before I compile latex. If I don't close it the changes made
with the new compilation won't show up.
Is there somewhere in preview the option to "refresh the view", so
that the changes in the pdf file appear?
Is it possible to use Acrobat Reader or Professional or any other
program as pdf viewer with TextMate, and what would be the correct
value for TM_LATEX_VIEWER? (side note: I looked in google, and all I
have found is TextMate in combination with preview or texniscope...
why is that?)
One could argue, I should change/make a new bibliography style file,
in order to make TextMate work with Texniscope, however I would like
to keep it for now, if I could resolve the "refresh" issue with a pdf
viewer. Or would you say texniscope is the way to go?
Thanks for your help,
I'd imagine that if the key combination was mapped to another app then I'd
see it working in that context. However I've not installed Huevos and have
tried just running the system and TextMate and the problem persists.
I've checked with a couple of other people here who use textmate - we all
have the same set-up - and it doesn't work for them either ??

Nope, I just misunderstood the usage until I read your "well,
exception" and double-checked to find:

in the manual. This is at odds with the normal behavior of
~/Library/KeyBindings relative to the system bindings (it only
overrides those it sets -- its mere existence doesn't blow away all
bindings), so I somehow missed this, and just had a skeletal set of
extensions and modifications in my TextMate user keybindings. Also,
using KeyBindingsEditor's built-in "Open TextMate user keybindings" to
get an empty Application Support/TextMate/KeyBindings.dict doesn't
So the simple answer is "RTFM -- very, very carefully."
I am trying to figure out how to do an emacs-like highlighting of the match
of a paired character such as a paren. I feel sure it must be supported in
TextMate but somehow I just can't run it down in the documentation. Is
there a way to do this?
[I am aware that things can be configured so that there is a brief flash on
the opening paren when the cursor moves over the closing paren, but I am
looking for a way to indicate the match more obviously and less
transiently. Also, the flash only seems to occur when the cursor is on the
closing paren, not the opening one, and I want to be able to find the match
in both directions].
When I press ^q in all modes I've tried (C++, Plain Text, Markdown,
...), I first get nothing. Then, on the second press, my selection is
obliterated and a space inserted. If I try this with no selection, I
consistently observe that the only ^q-related binding seems to be
something like: ^q ^q --> insertSpace. (The menu command works, and
is labeled, as expected.)
However, there are no references to "q" with any modifier anywhere in
any of my keybindings files, so far as I can tell.
I've spent months unable to use ^q for Reformat Paragraph, and always
assumed it was a stray keybinding on my aging OS install. I've since
gone back and rebuilt my profile from scratch on a new machine, with a
totally fresh bundles checkout and I carefully moved a select few
keybindings. Unfortunately, I failed to do it slowly enough to notice
when ^q ceased functioning.
Has anyone else observed this? Clearly something or someone,
somewhere has jacked ^q without my knowledge, but I can't for the life
of me figure out who or what.
