I just uploaded the new version 0.906
"$TMTOOLS" help me
added: show bundleMenu
Regarding to the Ctrl+Esc issue:
For all those of you who don't want to edit a keybindings.dict or to
abandon to some 'global' Ctrl+Esc events,
now you can easily create a normal TM command with
"$TMTOOLS" show bundleMenu
bound to any key-combo;
input = none;
output = show tool tip
to invoke the gear menu. Of course, Ctrl+Esc doesn't work if this
combo is used by other applications.
If there is someone who really need the Ctrl+Esc combo to open the
gear menu regardless of other applications, I believe this should
work (if you have installed QuickSilver and TMTOOLS 0.906):
write a bash script with the following content:
Contents/Resources/tm_tools show bundleMenu
Note: please verify the path to tm_tools!
save it as - let's say -
Note: be sure you set the "execute bit"!
open QuickSilver Trigger pane
go to 'Custom Triggers'
and add a new trigger by looking for the just created bash script
name "TM_show_bundleMenu" for an item; action = "Run [...]"; and set
the target to "dummy"
assign to the just created trigger the hot-key Ctrl+Esc and for
activation 'On Press'; scope to "TextMate"
close the QuickSilver window
try the hot-key Ctrl+Esc in TM
I tried it out, and it works, even if I have Apple Remote running.
