I am trying to understand how to do some basic operations with text mate but I didn't find help in the manual, wiki o faqs so I try here:
- New Project
I used to have all my web project files and directories inside a main directory, when I create a new project in textmate I drag such "main" folder into TextMate icon and save project. That seems correct and seems to be the only way that allows files or directories created later in the finder to appear in the project without the need to manually drag them. The question: is there any way to have the paths set from my "root" element? For example if I drag an image that is placed into /myroot/img/ the html file that gets it uses a src link like "../../img/image.gif". Is it possible to have "/img/image.gif" instead?
- Project Drawer and new files in project
How can I create a new file or duplicate an existing one? The alternatives seems to be:
- go to the file menù and select "new" but in this way the new file
appears in a new window outside the project and I don't know why;
- go to project drawer, select the directory where I want to create it
and hit new file button. Seems ok but Project Drawer behaviour feels a bit strange sometimes.
- use the file menu and "Save as..." to save the current file with a
new name to duplicate it. That's seems quite ok but Project Drawer seems bugged about: If I do that, I cannot see the old file in PD, or I can see it but it seems to have the same name of the new file created (that is no true). To fix it I have to quit and restart PD. Is there any way to have PD list updated correctly?
- go to the finder and make duplications from there. But this way is
longer than any other and I think it should be possible from TM.
Further more if I want to delete a file, the only way I found in PD is to *select the file twice* (why?) and then hit the "delete" keyboard button. There is no "delete" command in the right click menu, as for duplicate.
If I use the new file or new directory button in PD without selecting anything the behaviour is more strange: the file is placed or displayed in a some strange location in the project tree. The directory is called "group" but I don't know what it means.
Right click or control-left click will bring up a contextual menu that gives you all of this and a lot more.
- While I editing CSS or HTML files, sometimes I need the color
chooser, the default keys CTRL + SHIFT + C do not open it. That keys seems to be used by the default Math bundle. Is the solution to manually change such keys in Math bundle? Why TM provides such overlapping keys?
- A little "bug" with file tabs
When opened files number exceed TM window width, other files are visible under the ">>" button of tab list. Unfortunately if you need to work on a file listed in ">>", you cannot see it selected in the tabs so it is difficult sometimes to know on wich file you are working or where it is placed.
The window title gives you the file you are working on. Command click on the title gives you the full path to the file (standard mac behaviour).
