Concerning responsiveness: It would greatly enhance the
responsiveness of this list if you would stop messing the threading
up. So please do _not_ use the reply button in your mail program, but
just write a new mail to textmate(a)lists.macromates.com if you want to
start a new thread. Otherwise the universe will collapse (as noted in
the footer) and we really don't want that.
I think the delay is caused by what Allan explained about 4 days ago:
TextMate doesn't handle long lines very good if you don't enable soft
wrap. And because there are rather few line breaks in BMPs, TextMate
sucks at editing 1 MB BMPs. But why would you want to do that anyway,
exept by mistake?
Perhaps it should be better to handle these mistakes
and tell, i.
e., "you could not insert bmp image..." :-)
Maybe TextMate could recognize binary files in general (not just
BMPs, that would be rather silly) and kindly ask me about that,
Allan? Or could it auto-enable soft wrap for files where long lines
would cause problems? Although I'm not sure how to recognize these
files in advance.
