Dev Build 2081

Postby jps on Wed Jul 13, 2011 10:12 am

Dev Build 2081 is out now.

The largest change is a reworking of how scrolling happens in the text control. This by and large shouldn't have many user visible changes, but there may be some outstanding issues - let me know if you encounter anything.

For Windows, there's now an option to have the text rendered via DirectWrite, instead of GDI. DirectWrite is a newer API, and brings support for y-direction anti-aliasing and sub-pixel positioning - this can give better results in some circumstances, and blurry ones in others. DirectWrite is disabled by default, but can be enabled with the "directwrite" font option - it requires Windows 7 or Vista SP 2.

There's also the usual assortment of fixes and tweaks - full details are in the change log.

DirectWrite! Yippee!

It was a bit different at first, but I'm gradually (but quickly) getting used to it. It's nice, now looking at Chrome I feel angry that it's not there yet!

One bug I have found Jon is highlighting lines seems to highlight a gap between them, but only the first to the second.

This was introduced a while back, but I thought it was a one time thing, since then I've noticed it more and more.

The red line in your screenshot, if that's what you're referring to, is by design - it indicates that there is one contiguous selection there.

Oh I see.

Is there an option to turn it off? I keep having the feeling that it's a rendering issue.

Thanks for the release!

Focus issues seem to have gone away!

It seems "save_on_focus_lost" not working for me in this build.

I really love it personally. If you have an option to disable, don't get rid of it entirely.

If I try to add anything to the font_options list in my Base File.sublime-settings file I get this error:

Error trying to parse settings: Expected value in {SNIP}\Sublime Text 2\Data\Packages\User\Base File.sublime-settings:7:19

Here's the line:

"font_options": ['directwrite'],

What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

I've encountered two things so far:
1. When doing a find-all, the Find Results buffer doesn't scroll down as far as it could. I think maybe it tries to scroll before all the text is inserted into the buffer and therefore ends the scroll above where it used to.
2. When holding the up or down arrow key, the movement speed slows down when you hit the edge of the view and the view starts to scroll.

You need to use double quotes around the string, rather than single quotes
