Firstly can I just say I am a massive fan of Sublime Text, not many days go by where I dont spend hours using it.
I’m a Mac user, and am currently running macOS Big Sur, Version 11.4. I recently updated Sublime Text 4 to Stable Channel, Build 4107. The new look is great, I’m a fan, but one thing that is really bothering me is this. When I right click a folder in the sidebar and select ‘New File’, I’m used to getting a filename input box, type the filename, press return and boom the new file is created with the correct name. What an awesome feature.
But what is actually happening is that a new tab is opened up with the title ‘untitled’, the only way it seems to then name the file is to save it and browse to where the file should be and then type the name, which is painfully slow in comparison.
Ive tried a few things to fix this.
Following the steps in the Installation steps from the SidebarEnhancements github page:
Checking that the package is not ignored in Preferences.sublime-settings, as described here
Deleting the Sublime Text 3 app, all associated settings, and re-installing.
Nothing seems to fix the issue. I’ve found this so frustrating that Ive reverted back to Sublime Text 3 as that seems to be the only way I can have this feature working.
Am I alone here, or does anyone else have the same issue, or even better knows how to fix it please?
There’s also a very similar looking ancient issue:
