SB3: Crashes on Package preferences edit

SB3: Crashes on Package preferences edit

Postby casaper on Sun Feb 23, 2014 10:02 am


I installed Package Control on SB3 3059 on a Mac Maveriks with all patches.

Installing a Package with Package Control, I get the following behaviour:
  • Installed SidebarEnhancements (works fine as expected)
  • go to Sublime->Preferences->Package Settings->Sidebar->default
  • The default preferences get displayed as expected
  • Save them outputs the following error message in a msgBox:

Code: Select all
Unable to save ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Packages/SideBarEnhancements/Side Bar.sublime-settings
Error: No such file or directory

But with some packages SB3 crashed completely with this.

It seems the packages default settings are not beeing saved to the default location at install, so they're not present as expected by sublime.

I'm not sure if this issue is related to Package Control or SB3, so feel free to point me to PackageControl in case I'm completely wrong here.

I am in the exact same situation, running Linux (Ubuntu 14.04). The problem exists for all three packages I have installed now (Alignment, Package Control and Side Bar). I stumbled upon this issue because my alignment key bindings are not working and I wanted to debug these.

You need to use your "user" folder for package settings, not the "default". The "default" is there for you to copy and paste into "user". The default is overwritten every time a package is updated.
