ST2 installed, setup with packages and themes etc to suit.
Changed colours (I think this was the trigger, unsure), and the text on both of the Syntax menus disappeared.
Changing back settings, trying new themes etc did not fix.
Posted about it and received zero responses.
Fresh application of packages (downloaded, not copy across from old install, in case a package was responsible).
A week later, same problem - blank syntax menus.
In some projects I wouldn't mind this inconvenience. Create file then start coding.
Current project requires much copy/paste then edit and fix - being able to set Syntax instantly is handy.
