Preferences not loading

Preferences not loading

Postby twistedweasel on Thu May 10, 2012 2:56 pm

I am not sure when it happened, but at some point my default global preferences stopped loading. No changes I make in there seem to affect anything although my user settings work just fine.

I have used a symbolic link to put these files into my Dropbox folder so I wonder if that is causing issues. I looked in the console and the only error I saw that looked relevant was:

packages path: /Users/fhg/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages
settings path: /Users/fhg/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Settings
error parsing session: No data at: 0:0

I am on the latest stable OSX build. Has anyone else seen this issue?

I had the same thing happening over here. I think it's necessary that all the package folders (Installed Packages, Packages & Pristine Packages) have to stay together.

In my first try I had only the "Packages" folder in Dropbox.

How I fixed it was to backup my settings, freshly installed Sublime Text 2, copy/pasted my settings in. And then copied the 3 folders to Dropbox & symlinked them.

Hope this will help you.

What's the file name that you're editing? The file name was changed during the beta, when the two separate preferences files were combined. It should be Preferences.sublime-settings.
