10.6.5 to 10.6.7. Now Edit in Textmate has disappeared from my Edit menu in applications
like Mail and TextMate, and the key binding Ctrl-Cmd-E doesn't work even on TextMate
itself (eg, when editing snippets).
If installed (properly) *and* the application is running in 32 bit mode then there should
be an Edit in TextMate entry in the Edit menu.
Since it is not appearing in TextMate (which is 32 bit) it indicates that the input
manager is not installed correctly.
Try in Terminal to run: ls -lR /Library/InputManagers/Edit\ in\ TextMate
This will show all the files and their owner/protection flags, this may shed some light
over what is wrong.
You can also try remove it and use Bundles → TextMate → Install “Edit in TextMate”… — I
just tested this on a new (clean) machine running 10.6.7, and after switching Mail to run
in 32 bit mode, I had the menu item and the ⌃⌘E key even worked (at some point Mail
swalled this key).
I'm running TextMate 1.5.10 (1631) on both
computers, and updated my bundles. Edit in TextMate is checked under System
The Edit in TextMate _service_ has been discontinued long ago. It is the _input manager_
QuickCursor has been recommended to me, but based
on the comments I've seen the current version doesn't match Edit in TextMate's
I have yet to try this myself, given the comments in this thread, it sounds like it is
about time I do :)
Thanks for helping us out here. I have tried many times to get Edit in TextMate to load.
For example, just now, I removed InputManager from Library and used Bundles → TextMate →
Install “Edit in TextMate”. But the Symbolic Link button returned the message "The
input manager (/Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/Resources/Edit in TextMate) was not
found in the TextMate application bundle." Indeed, Edit In TextMate is not in
Resources. I opened Resources using the gear, and also looked inside Resources via the
terminal with ls, and it is not there. I tried reloading TextMate from Macromates
website and Edit in TextMate is still not anywhere to be found on my computer. I discarded
old files and tried reloading again. I also tried the link just above the Symbolic Link
button and followed your instructions using terminal. I always ran up against the same
problem. Where is Edit in TextMate?
QuickCursor is not nearly as useful as Edit in TextMate, at least not to me. You will
quickly learn that QuickCursor simply uses the clipboard to move text from one file to
another, and can lose data and formatting such as quotation level lines from mail. It
does not permit multiple edits without creating multiple files.
