I love working with Sublime Text but there are two frequent/serious issues that are making me consider switching editors. The 1st and most annoying one is this one.
Very frequently I will start ST3 and it will freeze midway while loading my past session. This generally seems to happen when I have a higher number of opened windows and tabs. It rarely happens that killing and reopening it many times makes me lucky enough to make it work. But more commonly what I see is all the windows opening, some tabs show their respective contents but then some are just empty, showing that discreet loading progress bar frozen in place.
Yes, deleting the session file solves it. I sometimes was lucky enough to find what section needed to be removed for it work without having to fully delete it. But having to go through this process many times per week gets annoying fast. And losing the contents of my unsaved buffers makes me unable to enjoy one of ST’s best features.
And because 2nd issue I mentioned makes this one worse let me mention it here: it’s very common that ST3 crashes by itself overnight when I leave it running at work. So I get back in the morning to work and instead of resuming immediately what I was doing I have to debug my session file…
Can anything be please, pretty please, be done about this? Thanks!
Note: I did search for past issues regarding this. I found one post that apparently reported the same issue in ST2 but it was considered solved by learning the delete-session-file-trick. I would hardly consider that a solution.
