The behavior of double-click and option-arrow have recently changed for
me (only in TextMate), and I'm finding the new behavior really annoying.
For example, if I have the following Python code:
def my_function(parameter_name, defaults=None):
#This is a test + another test ...
...then, 1) if I double-click on the "my" part of the function name, it
select the string "def my"; 2) if I double-click on the word "test",
selects "This is a test ". Previously, #1 would have selected either
"my" or "my_function" (I forget which) and, #2 would have selected
the word "test".
The option-left-arrow and option-right_arrow keys use similar "word"
breaks when moving the cursor: if the cursor is in the word "test", for
instance, option-left-arrow moves it to the beginning of the word "This".
It's not just a Python change, either. If I have the following text:
ALTER TABLE `my_table_name` MODIFY COLUMN `column_name` FLOAT NOT NULL;
...then double-clicking on the word "MODIFY" selects " MODIFY COLUMN
What might have changed to cause this annoying behavior, and how do I
I'd appreciate any suggestions,
