Yeah, I had enabled Vintage for a little to try it out. I turned it back off and that's when the problem happened. Maybe the views got stuck in ro mode because I was in command mode when I turned Vintage off?

When Vintage is enabled, it'll set the command_mode and inverse_caret_state settings on all views. When it's disabled, it removes these settings. However, if it doesn't get notified about being disabled, such as via Global.sublime-settings being modified when Sublime Text isn't running, then the settings will be left around.

I'll take a look at changing things such that these settings are never serialized.

I did not enable VI mode intentionally, and afterwards moved the package to the ignored packages folder, and even that didn't help. It is still not clear to me how I got in VI mode. What is the keystroke to enter/leave vintage mode? I didn't see anything in the key bindings.

Temporary solution:
1. Save and close the project
2. Edit the project file
3. Replace "command_mode": true with "command_mode": false
4. Replace "inverse_caret_state": true with "inverse_caret_state": false
5. Save the file
6. Reopen the project

I experience this problem today on Lion.

Closing all buffers, quitting and then re-opening sorted it.

I don't remember ever enabling Vintage mode.
