I have made the following
blunder a couple of times. I go to open a file in textMate using
File->Open and am in column view. I accidentally double click on the
folder instead of single clicking. In list view or icon view this
would just open the folder and go to the next level. In column view
this actually opens the folder in textMate. If you are unfortunate
enough to do this at low enough a level, textMate will then start
scanning the entire folder hierarchy.
I seem to remember seeing a command that would stop this process. I
searched the archives of the list, but apparently I didn't on the
right word choices.
BTW. Part of the beauty of textMate is that it doesn't protect you from such
blunders. My chain saw expects me to know not to run it while the chain is
directed at my own leg. If I put a guard on the chain, it would make the
tool REALLY hard to use.
Currently I just force quit textMate and start over. I just wonder if there
is a better way.
Have a great day.
I'm constrained to use Subversion 1.6.x, and this breaks the
Subversion bundle I have. I did try checking out the current bundle
into /Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles, but that seems
not to have helped.
Is there any relief for this? Either a new bundle or some Subversion
properties I can set?
I searched the Nabble archive for this list, and looked back a few
months, but found nothing relevant.
Attached are two services written to take advantage of Snow Leopard's
context menu/automator integration.
TxtToTM sends text selected in any application and opens a new TextMate
window with that text inserted. There is a rudimentary heuristic set up to
bundle type accordingly. This is implemented through an Applescript in
Automator. So this can be extended/improved/hacked by the many textmate
users who are, no doubt, more proficient in Applescript than me.
Edit in Textmate will open any file or folder selected in Finder in
Textmate. Folders open to Projects.
These services show up when contextually appropriate (i.e. when you have
text selected it will be in your right click menu).
To install unzip, and put the two files in ~/Library/Services. You may need
to go to System Preferences/Keyboard/Services and make sure the box next to
each of them is checked for them to show up in your context menu.
These are written using Automator's new Create Service function in Snow
Leopard, so are 64 bit compatible. I have no idea if they would work in
