TextMate to BBEdit switcher’s guide: BBEdit has command-t now! (well, sorta)

For the full details, see here:  https://groups.google.com/d/topic/bbedit/J5YUlmHsVvM/discussion

Now, this feature is wonderful if you’re a long-time BBEdit user. It’s pretty extra awesome if like me you can only run PeepOpen on some of your Macs. And, for switchers looking for a native way to replicate their beloved cmd-t, it’s not bad.

That said I can totally understand why switchers would say “Not the same, not what I want/need”. My dream was to see them re-use the same dialog as the “Insert Clipping” window, which is just like (or damn near, in any event) TextMate’s window. PeepOpen includes extra functionality like showing SCM status.

Still, you can bind it to cmd-t and it’ll work close enough that your muscle memory might not get too confused. And be sure to check out the even more recent betas; they’ve been doing some big performance improvements (one of the reasons I have always kept BBEdit in my Applications folder, even when I’m trying out another editor or using an IDE for stuff like Java).
