[BUG] User .sublime-settings don't work (Build 2059)

[BUG] User .sublime-settings don't work (Build 2059)

Postby rwtolbert on Sat May 14, 2011 3:48 pm

I've searched to see if that has already been reported. I apologize if this is a dupe.

In setting up my own preferences, I've modified my Base settings to expand tabs to spaces, but clearly in Makefiles, this has to be reversed. According to this page, http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/2/indentation.html, there are two User places for putting User settings. But at least in build 2059, they file-type specific version does not work.

From that page:
Settings files are consulted in this order:

Packages/Default/Base File.sublime-settings
Packages/Default/Base File (<platform>).sublime-settings
Packages/User/Base File.sublime-settings

but when I place the following in Packages/User/Makefile.sublime-settings, the settings are never used:

Code: Select all
   "word_wrap": false,

    // The number of spaces a tab is considered equal to
    "tab_size": 4,

    // Set to true to insert spaces when tab is pressed
    "translate_tabs_to_spaces": false

Maybe I'm doing something fundamentally wrong.

No, it's not you.

I'm trying to slap HTML into submission by enforcing a 2-space tab with indentation detection set to off and it insists on 8 spaces. Got the HTML.sublime-settings in Packages\User, but it doesn't seem it has picked it up.

Code: Select all
    "detect_indentation": false,
    "tab_size": 2,
    "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true

It says on the console it's reloading the file when I write it, but doesn't seem to enforce anything.
