App locks up


Hey everyone!
I cannot start the app anymore since setting the theme to auto (High Sierra doesn’t have OS auto). Probably need to fix the prefs file manually.
Best wishes,



Hi @shushustorm,

Thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re experiencing issues with Sublime Merge.
I’ll try to get this resolved for you as quickly as possible.

To start with, could you:

  • confirm if you see any error messages when attempting to start Sublime Merge?
  • share the contents of your preferences file

You can find the Preferences.sublime-settings file in ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Merge/Packages/User/. If you’re unsure how to find this folder, you can open Finder and select Go > Go to Folder.

Kind regards,
- Dylan from Sublime HQ



Hey Dylan! Thanks for your reply! There weren’t any errors showing. My Default (OSX).sublime-settings included a line for theme, which I removed. Then I could start Merge again.
