January 04, 2011, at 10:18 UTC by Timo - added suggestion to syntax highlighting printing section
Added lines 69-71:

When syntax highlighting uses a white font color (or bright on dark background, as many prefer), printing results in white pages. Since most people probably use regular white paper, there should be an option to print WITHOUT syntax highlighting colors. Or, maybe a second color profile solely for printing, that would be even better.

+1. Also I'd like to be to select some code and define what language it is. For example I might be working on a Ruby file, but I have a function that creates some JavaScript. I'd like to select that JS, define it as JS and see the theme colours I have set for that language.

September 15, 2008, at 22:29 UTC by Daniel Hyde - Automatic EOL on last line
Changed lines 243-255 from:

When I view a file such as *.mine due to a SVN conflict, I need to be able to manually choose how I want that file to highlight. Right now it's all black/white and is hard to separate what needs to be merged. In addition, it would be great if it knew that a .mine extension or *.r[0-9]+ was due to a SVN conflict, and removes that part to determine what syntax highlighting is needed.

Automatic EOL on last line

All the unix command line tools expect there to be an EOL character on the end of the last line of text files, just like there is on every other line.

Currently TextMate is emulating Notepad of all things, and expecting one to add this by hand by placing an "empty" line at the end of the file (which then in turn doesn't have an EOL at the end, but since it doesn't have any characters either it doesn't cause an issue).

Could there please be at least a preference for enabling this behaviour?

For bonus points you could make it default, and then mimic the way VIM autodetects cases where this should not be enabled.

Added lines 169-171:
I've been trying to edit a project with about 250 files in it. The 15 second lag every time I focus the screen is very frustrating. I presume TextMate touches every file in the project tree. For starters, instead of just disabling the feature, is there some way it can do lazy checks? For instance, only check the files I have open, then only the folders I have expanded, then (maybe) the rest of the tree. Someone else mentioned doing the check in another thread so it doesn't hold up the entire interface.

Use with multiple browsers

In the gutter that shows your projects files, when right clicking a file you can open it in "safari" (or I expect your default browser) I prefer to use safari for browsing and firefox for developing ui intensive web apps (firebug, anyone?).

Play Nice with Slow Filesystems

I have a crazy project that requires I edit files in a filesystem that is mounted over WebDAV -- very slow filesystem. TextMate works great for this except that TextMate seems to re-scan all files in a project (or some other kind of filesystem access) whenever application focus is lost and returned. This results in a delay of about 15 seconds of pinwheeling before I can continue editing.

Can we have an option to prevent TextMate from trying to detect if a file has changed? A "Slow Filesystem" option? Even something I could set from the command line would do. This project (which could not be more important) is due next Thursday and I've no way to edit things on a local FS. -jm

Preserve folding when printing

I'd be interested in preserving folding when printing. Today for example, i needed to look at some code, but there was a lot of extraneous stuff in the file that i could fold away and get it out of my brain. But when printed, the folded blocks re-expanded, and i (potentially would have) wasted a lot of paper. Thanks, Bob Kuehne

Per document/MIME/extension themes

Would be nice to add a preference section which would allow setting syntax coloring themes per language.

I'm (Joshua Lock) seconding this and expanding upon it. I'd like this because I work in a variety of languages and have yet to find/create a theme that plays nicely with all of them. Furthermore I'd like to edit plain text (non-source) files in TM from time to time but find this difficult under the moajority of themes. Ideally I'd have a plain theme (just black on white) for standard text files such as README's etc.


Remove trailing whitespace on save

The only thing I miss about UltraEdit: there was a preference to trim extra whitespace from the end of each line upon save. It felt like you were saving electricity or something, getting rid of all those unseen spaces. You could retire after that.

I would second this too but I would like the featuer with a twist. I hate accidental extra white space at the end of real lines. But some lines are just a bunch of tabs holding the current indentation level because there is no actual text on the line. I wouldn't want this removed because then I have to tab in all the time to get the line back to where it should be. No editor does this right in my opinion. It would be awesome if textmate became the first. - Rick Gigger
