Yeah for me (with Solarized Light) it doesn't work with highlight_line on and the simple inversion makes the text under the cursor near unreadable.

It would be awesome if it would honor the same settings as SublimeBlockCursor: https://github.com/netpro2k/SublimeBloc ... figuration

Nice find facelessuser..

Unfortunately there are some wrinkles; it only works in insert mode, and seems to change the caret to an underline for insert and a normal, vertical caret for overtype. Whereas without this pref, the caret behaves opposite ie. vertical for insert and underline for overtype.

Also, deleting the pref doesn't revert to old behaviour without restarting Sublime, unless it's explicitly set "false" in which case the caret types remain swapped (underline for insert, vertical bar for overtype) until restart.

Really like this style of block cursor. What would be very nice:
- to see the block for insert or overtype carets (underline and vertical bar),
- for the caret type to remain consistent in block mode,
- for the colour of the block to be configurable,
- optional XOR so that bright block cursors don't occlude the character underneath as it flashes/pulses

@qgates, yeah, I was looking at it from the standpoint of someone who doesn't use vintage mode. I poked around and found the setting. I figured I would post it for those who don't use vintage but want a block cursor. For those the non-vintage users, I imagine it would be something that would get set once, and then you forget about it.

An update YAY! Most wanted features of these months(?) without updates:
- Ability to filter from search results certain folders such .git, but display these in sidebar.... (I've a project with a .git folder with 4000 files and the real project has 300 files, everytime I search for something it says: searching in 4300 files.. instead of skipping the 4000 files)
- If a very long line is going to be shown in a search result please try to crop it.
- When folding a piece of code, likely a large one, a click in the minimap will make the whole screen to "jump" causing confusion. Please sync the minimap after folding/unfolding something.

Everything works really great here B-)

I've had a problem with indexing, but it was my fault, one of the folders in the project was updated with new files constantly, and that triggered the indexing multiple times keeping the CPU usage high. Maybe adding the ability to blacklist certain folders from the index..

Ahh, I've a problem, a real one, the sidebar selection is problematic a non intuitive. Almost all the times when selecting multiples files, you will end with at least one selected file or folder that you don't want in the selection.. the selection of the sidebar is lost every time we focus a file, that is........!! a bug. Imagine you switch of tab and you lost your buffer selection.. I feel exactly that.
- Open any file from sidebar, that file will receive a "selection"(because is highlighted) [any other selection you have had will be trashed.]
- Now select a bunch of unrelated file with control. The first file that is opened in a tab, is still selected. I guess you may want to highlight it but not as a selection. If you don't notice the file is selected(because of scrolling in the sidebar to some other place) you may end deleting it or moving it to an unrelated place.. just that, we already discussed this in another thread. The same still apply for me, this tree has a very special behaviour that after my years using it, I still don't like it and I think is wrong.
Give APIs, let the community build the rest!

Loving the block cursor! It was really worth the wait :mrgreen:

It would be great if we could set the background colour in the theme using a different key and only use selection colour as the fallback. Btw, it doesn't seem to work on scopes with a background colour.

This is not a block cursor, this is a kludge hack effect to simulate a block cursor.

Nice to see Jon adding even this though as people have been asking for a block cursor for a while. It would be nicer if we had an actual block cursor eventually :)

The hide menu function looks to be working great.

It was glitzy at first (menu overlapping the tabs, etc.), but I narrowed down the issue to a plugin (WakaTime) that must be doing something strange with the menu.

You can already do this via adding
Code: Select all
,-path/to/ignore/
(ending with a '/' is important) in the "where" field.

Can you explain this a little more? Where is „where” field? Are you suggesting having something like this (in settings file) ?
Code: Select all
"folder_exclude_patterns":[ "-.git/" ]


Thanks.
