[SOLVED] How to show the menu back?

#1

I’m using Sublime Text 2 (registered! :smile:) and I clicked “Hide menu” to have a better “Full screen” view.

But now I can’t bring it back :unamused:

Hovering the top of the program won’t show the menu like it does in Mac OX.

Is there a way or a shortcut to bring it back?

Thanks!

Pressing the “alt” key should show the menu for you. This is reasonably standard behaviour in applications that allow menu hiding…

Not standard for me (not a windows user). I didn’t mean that it was a Sublime problem, just wondering how to bring it back.

Thanks!

Hi, to show the menu back, do the following:

  1. Close sublime text
  2. Go to /home/-user-/.config/sublime-text-version-/Local/
  3. gedit Session.sublime_session
  4. Look for the last line with “menu_visible”:false,
  5. Switch to true
  6. Save the file
  7. Reopen sublime text

Bye

The easiest way, which works on all platforms, is to use the command pallete: on Windows ctrl+shift+p followed by ‘vmen’ (short for View Menu).
