Currently in TextMate, it’s possible to implement completion using a bundle command. This can be invoked using a keyboard shortcut. Some IDE’s have implemented something like dot completion, that is, when a dot is typed the dot will be inserted in the text and a completion list will be shown. Some editors will even show this completion list for most characters that are typed.
In TextMate it’s possible to set the key equivalent of a bundle command to a dot, the problem is that the dot will then not be inserted in the text. It’s also possible to manually write out a dot in the bundle command. The problem with that is that the dot is not actually in the text buffer when accessing it in the bundle command. This will most likely not work because whatever is parsing the source code to generate the completion expects the dot to actually be there.
Is this something that can be implemented in TextMate, perhaps as a semantic class? Ideally it should be configurable to support any character, ideally more than one. Example, for many languages a dot is what’s needed, but for the C, C++ and Objective-C an arrow (->) would be necessary as well. Just to be clear, I’m only talking about a new way to trigger a bundle command, not implementing the actually completion.

I'm not sure if this is a known issue, or if it is only Python, but the Jump to Symbol window has trouble properly displaying Python functions & methods that have multi-line parameter lists.
A function heading like this
Shows up in the Jump to Symbol window's table as
def makeWeek(geo=AMERICAS, post_by=STAFF_TYPE...)
Aligning the parameter names' leading edges with the opening parenthesis tends to work better with Python linters in this situation, but kind poorly for the Jump to Symbol window.
My way to quickly ge to the bottom of a document is to select it all and then right-arrow to place the cursor at the last character in the document.
For some time now, this doesn’t always work: Often one ends up some-way down, but not at the bottom. Repeating 2-4 times needed to get to the bottom.
It seems to occur when line wrap is on, and the document contains long lines (i.e., text paragraphs)
Perhaps something is a bit off in the algorithm for scrolling the page when lines are wrapping?
Hi all -
I keep a lot of functions folded in my normal workflow. This usually works fine, but when a non-TM program changes a file, (usually switching branches in Git from a client or command line) the folding settings aren't updated and I end up with strange folding in the middle of a line that may throw off everything in the file.
This isn't a huge problem (and I bet if I always used TM's source control plugin, this would be handled automatically, right?) but I wonder if there's any way to just tell TM "hey, forget all the folding in this file". One might think that cmd-opt-0 (Un/fold All Levels) would do this, but it seems to toggle all the folds without scanning the syntax to see if the fold locations are valid. Anybody know how to just delete all folding for a given file? As it is, I have to scan through big files, looking for hidden '...' glyphs.
