When I start sublime (build 3126) in Sierra I see the window opening and closing on screen very quickly. Thus I always have to click the sublime icon in the dock twice. This seems to happen only when sublime is 'empty' though, i.e. no files were left open in the side bar.
I'm planning on looking into this shortly. I believe it is an interaction between close_windows_when_empty and the initialization of an empty buffer when starting up "clean".
I have the same problem. Any updates about this issue?
Other people are referencing to this problem here:
I'm also wondering if there is any update on this issue.
I'm experiencing the same on Sierra 10.12.2 ..
[UPDATE]Settings "close_windows_when_empty": false in the user settings solved the issue on El Captain ..It may solve it on Sierra too.
Good catch. This solved the issue on Sierra.
You 'da man!
Works on Sierra too.
Yes, this does fix this issue.
What's weird: if I remove the setting afterwards or even if I set it to true, it still works...
Yes, this was one of the things I intended to look into for the last dev build, but I ended up focusing on a number of other things. I still am planning on looking into this and getting it resolved.
I had this trouble too so I disabled close_windows_when_empty. This function should apply only when we close a tab, not when sublime text doesn't have an tab, because it triggers this when opening the app.
