Hide sidebar command not working?

Hide sidebar command not working?

Postby handycam on Wed Feb 08, 2012 1:31 pm

In 2175, I just tried to hide the sidebar (something I have done in the past) with command-K, command-B.

I get "no build system" dialog. I can hide and show it from the menu though. Why is this?

Well, because those hotkeys are bound to different commands (command-B is to build the current file, which gave you the "no build system" dialog you saw).

What I did was go to Preferences -> Key Bindings - User, and set my hotkey, something like this:

{ "keys": ["ctrl+\\"], "command": "toggle_side_bar" }

It works by default, check you don't have anything bound to Cmd+K

This doesn't seem to work for me either. I get the same message regarding the build system. If I look in Preferences > Key Bindings > Default (I haven't touched anything in here, I use the User file) I see the following mappings which are related to the same keystrokes:

//Line 17
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+b"], "command": "toggle_side_bar" },

// Line 230
{ "keys": ["super+b"], "command": "build" },

// Lines 509 - 515
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+u"], "command": "upper_case" },
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+l"], "command": "lower_case" },
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+space"], "command": "set_mark" },
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+a"], "command": "select_to_mark" },
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+w"], "command": "delete_to_mark" },
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+x"], "command": "swap_with_mark" },
{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+g"], "command": "clear_bookmarks", "args": {"name": "mark"} },

These look like they clash. Is this what everyone else has in their Default Key Bindings? If so why are their clashing commands?

Yeah I am seeing this too, it's weird... so many super+k bindings by default. Surely this can't be right? As a (brand new) user of SublimeText, I would prefer to learn the default keybindings, rather than set up custom ones. But obviously the default keybindings are broken on mac! Anyone able to look into this for us?

The default key bindings are not broken.

A key binding like ["super+k", "super+b"] specifies a key sequence.
So you'd press Super+K, release the keys, then press Super+B to hide the sidebar.
Key sequences are a very common thing that both Emacs and Microsoft Visual Studio make heavy use of.

The key sequence implementation in Sublime Text has a certain timeout.
If you press Super+K, wait 3 seconds, then press Super+B, it will not recognize the
sequence but invoke the key binding for Build, which is bound to Super+B alone.
