Dev Build 2178

@aschuler when you launch Sublime Text from the command line, Gnome Shell doesn't know what icon
it should use for the window so it uses whatever the application provides as an X11 property (_NET_WM_ICON).
I presume ST2 sets the proptery implicitly through GTK2, so it's going to be tough to build a workaround.

Gnome Shell does have a JavaScript API though, you could try that.

First: Why is the Icon a Button? I think the Icon should somehow describe the program, actually it does just add some confusion.

It's a keyboard key. Specifically an aluminium MacBook one from the looks of it. On the contrary, I'd say that is very descriptive of the program!

I like it. Like any design change of something familiar, it's a bit jarring at first, but will soon settle in.

I would say this is a very minor issue, but I find that the icon would be slightly more visually appealing in Windows 7 if it were lowered a bit. Right now it looks kind of off center - vertically, that is. But I don't know how one would go about fixing this.

Regarding the icon, it would look WAY better if it didn't have that glow around the "S". That just makes it look blurry. Without that it would be much sharper and easier to read.

My last issue listed when I did switch from VIM:

-When you are at the last char of the line and hit "v" and go to the start of the line (selecting the entire line). Vintage will let the last char unselected.

Im using this to move start/eol
Code: Select all
   { "keys": ["alt+l"], "command": "set_motion", "args": {
      "motion": "vi_move_to_hard_eol",
      "motion_args": {"repeat": 1, "extend": true},
      "inclusive": true,
      "clip_to_line": true },
      "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}]

   { "keys": ["alt+h"], "command": "set_motion", "args": {
      "motion": "vi_move_to_first_non_white_space_character",
      "motion_args": {"extend": true },
      "clip_to_line": true },
      "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}]

But definitely I can live with that. :D

Renaming a file via the side bar will rename any open files

Yay :)

New Icon, by The Iconfactory

hmmm... Not sure why it's a button, but I can live with that. The 2 things that bug me are (1) the orange (I'd much rather see a faint blue) and (2) the font of the S. The 'S' looks whimsical, not something I want in a text editor. Still excited by the change. Usually I'm a big fan of Iconfactory, though.

Damn... I'm picky :)

EDIT: the orange is growing on me...

I've been lurking here a long time, using the dev builds, etc. Just felt the need to post to say how awesome the new icon is. Good move getting Iconfactory to make it. :)

I like the current icon but I was playing around & came up with this:

I like MrMartineau's color hue changes much better vs the yellow, from the screenshots looks good in the Win 7 task bar but on my dock (OS X) looks sort of out of place (like it wasn't meant for an app icon). Why I'm sticking with Nate Beaty's lighter blue version of http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/download/file.php?id=200

With that said, another amazing update, after seeing the rename file update who cares about the icon :P

(now how about file type icons in the project tree next to the text)
