not a textmate issue at all. You are on 10.5.6, which is known to
work, for what appears to be the better majority of users.
So, just to confirm, you have no problem with double clicking
extensionless files and getting them the open with tm? If so,
that's encouraging at least.
You have something strange going on with your system.
Amen to that! BTW: I just moved from 10.4 where all this worked
fine to 10.5 where things have been bad from the beginning.
While there is
a chance TM is making it more apparent, file opening, either by drag
and drop or double click etc, are easily controlled by Mac OS X.
Curious what happens if you select a file and press command-O on the
same result as double click. opens in wrong app.
At this point, I suggest you crete a new user account
in OS X, login
to that account, and see if that solves it.
New user account -- but same machine, so same Applications folder.
Here's what I did to check things.
Open TM. Create a new file using Save as. Quit TM.
Double click the new file. Get this error:
The document "newfile" could not be opened.
Help Viewer cannot open files of this type.
I removed TM from Applications, download a new copy, put that
in Applications, tried again, and got the same error.
P.S. Thanks to John Laudun for expressing sympathy!
