re item2: I did not started this thread to get a sticky of "Unofficial bug tracking" thread, I started it for the reasons explained in item0, but the stick is appreciated thanks.

The thread lost the intended focus, and moved to something else, If there were moderators of this forum, I guess all that non-relevant conversation should have be moved to another thread. ~

That would be great!
I thought I was just really stupid because I couldn't find the subscribe button.

If an independent support forum is set up, maybe someone could explain to me how to enable multilingual spell checking. (Swedish/English)
I followed the instructions I found and the Swedish spell check can't find a suggestion for any words.

dont let the door.. .. .


That's one way of looking at it, especially coming from the F/OSS world where anyone is free to do whatever they want (essentially, let's not start arguing about *that*) with the code, and support other users to the best of their abilities if they wish. The difference here is that (hopefully) many of us paid good money for this product, and expect something more in return besides a lack of popups when trying to save, and the privilege of alpha/beta-testing the new version. I am perfectly happy to support Jon's coding habit, as I feel he should be rewarded for creating such a fantastic editor. However, it'd be nice to have some semblance of a professional support structure in place, even if it's just one person monitoring the forums here, and maybe contributing to the various StackExchange sites, responding on userecho, updating the docs, etc.

I'm not ready to leave ST, as I've invested so much in it, and there aren't any really viable alternatives yet (although apparently that's starting to change, judging by the side-thread here). I can completely understand Jon's wanting to focus on coding instead of other, perhaps less-interesting things, but in order to run a successful business it needs to be done.

Jon replied to an email of mine the other day, in regards to this topic.

Communication from my side has been pretty scarce recently, I'll look at addressing that next week.


He's busy, he's doing amazing things. Give him time :)

Good. Because this is exactly what we need: one more discussion board.
User echo, this forum and github issue tracker are all too mainstream? :mrgreen:
