Yes, I am still experiencing the following bugs:

  • Linux x64 still crashes when doing a search and replace on a selection with a CREATE TABLE statement and replacing the table name. I sent you a couple of gdb backtraces about this. I do not know if it was present in 2095.
  • Linux x64 is still showing square boxes in the Goto Symbol panel when a python file is indented with tabs. This was also present in 2095.

I agree that this can be useful for determining what scope you are in, but it is also now probably less useful for determining what exact indent level you are at within that scope when scrolling more than a page. I can see both as useful. What scope you are in is useful in python files, whereas scrollable indent level less so. In HTML and XML the scrollable indent level can be fairly useful.

I like the multi-level style. I'm not sure how it would look, but might it be possible to differentiate between the different indentation levels (either by increasing thickness or by cycling through 3 or 4 colours)?

I would say I like the 2108, multi-level style active indent guides, *but*... I'd still wish the current level to be more visible somehow (perhaps a brighter color or a different color)

You can set the colors in your .tmTheme:
Code: Select all
<dict>
[...]
        <key>guide</key>
        <string>#252525</string>
        <key>activeGuide</key>
        <string>#363636</string>
[...]
</dict>

2 bugs:
1. The last indent guide is still sometimes broken up even though it should be a continuous line.
2. It appears to stop after ~15 indent guides. This is a problem for my 37-tab-indented file :(
Screenshot attached to show both problems

Regarding the active indent guides, I'm personally not a fan just because it's too much clutter, especially in a massive file like this. I would love it if I could click an indent guide and only have that guide highlighted, but I'll probably just go back to a plugin to get the functionality I'd like.
