Sublime Text X 20100930

Hello again.

I noticed some things on the latest version on MacOSX

First of all when the application first starts when I try to create a new file there is a delay of about 3-5 seconds before it does that.
The same happens when I first switch from English to Greek.

By the way what are the configuration directives that can be used in Widget.sublime-options and Minimap.sublime-options.

Finally is there any plan to reload the User configuration on save? Jon, I think you mentioned it in a post.

By the way on the Mac what is the Hot Quit option? Is it like force quit?

Regards,

Nick

The same as Default File Type.sublime-options, these are just overrides used for widgets and the minimap.

Yep, files under Packages will eventually be auto reloaded, a la Sublime Text

It's the same as Exit and Preserve Session in Sublime Text: exits without prompting you to save any changes, but restores the modifications on startup.

Yikes, good point. I'll change that.


It'd be really sweet if we could actually customize the mouse bindings in Sublime X in the same we we can customize the keyboard bindings in Sublime 1.4. On my Mac laptop I use a two-finger click for a right click, and it works fine - I'd like to be able to liberate my ctrl key from the bonds of right-click oppression. Since 2005 all desktop Mac mice have had right-click functionality, and all Mac laptop trackpads allowed two-finger right clicks before even that time, if memory serves -- it's time we let go of that control key.

I think typically option-click is used for column-select on Macs though.

I've been playing around with the 20100930 build, and I'm liking what I see. It looks like you put a lot of hard work into this!

I have a few comments from playing around with it:

I'm a fan of the sidebar detent, and the way it changes based on filename length.

View > Layout - It'd be awesome if instead of using the view menu, I could just drag different views or different tabs to arbitrary locations in the window and have them snap into a grid-like formation. I feel like I'm not being very clear here, but I think this is decently common behavior, so maybe you know what I'm talking about.

Even more than the layout thing I described above, I'd like to have multi-window support (e.g., drag buffers out and back into different windows). I assume this is in the cards, but I'd like to give it an extra plug. I would use multi-window support to the exclusion of multi-pane support if it existed.
Ideally, I would be able to select multiple tabs (which already seems possible) and then drag them all out at once to make a new window, or drag them all at once into an existing window. I want to do this all the time, but I've never seen an app that lets me. Yours could be the first!
Ctrl-click to multi-select seems to work only on groups, whereas shift-click will work on either buffers or groups.

Dragging a tab to a new group in the sidebar is able to change the displayed name of the file to that of one in the destination group. Dragging the tab a second time seems to fix it in most cases.

Could the sidebar groups maybe be renamed views (e.g. "View 1" instead of "Group 1") in accordance with what they represent? I think it'd make more sense to me.

I love the new select buffer window - it looks gorgeous and matches with the rest of the UI, is super fast, and has a really great fuzzy search algorithm. I like being able to slam out letters that include part of the directory name, the filename, and the extension and have it just know what I want. It's great.

That's all I had written down. I'll let you know if I notice anything else!

Thanks!

adzenith: Thanks for the useful suggestions. I'm planning to do more with dragging views around, but it'll be a while till I get to it.

oxman: I'll try and make one available for the next release.
