Abyss Skin colour for search results not noticable

Komodo IDE, version 8.5.1, build 82367, platform macosx.
Built on Tue Oct 1 12:32:58 2013.

Searching a file for text with the Abyss skin results in matches being highlighted in dark green (#103C09). This is very hard to see against the black background. I've searched the preferences and the underlying source files, but have been unable to locate this colour (I'm guessing it has a lot of alpha). How does one change it? I wish Komodo had a DOM inspector that I could use to find IDs and class names.

When I type function() I get a lot of undesired code


When I type function(), I obtain this code :

var scimoz = ko.views.manager.currentView.scimoz;
var currentPos = scimoz.currentPos;
var lineStartPos = scimoz.positionFromLine(scimoz.lineFromPosition(currentPos));
var currentLine = scimoz.getTextRange(lineStartPos, currentPos);
// Simplification: Emit an abbrev'n only for function statements,
// not function expressions.
if (!(/^\s*$/.test(currentLine))) {
var msg = "Auto-abbreviation 'function' cancelled due to leading characters."

Line number/fold state bug (99808) back in nightlies

Bug #99808 has reappeared for me in version 8.5.2, build 82378.

Anyone else seeing this?

Calltip exceptions in Komodo IDE 8.5

Calltips seem to be more nosy in 8.5. I keep getting calltip (the yellow Post-It Note -looking pop-ups, right?) exceptions when I select the names of my own methods

(exception): can not get property

I like when calltips pop up to remind me of the signature for PHP functions. Such as typing array_walk( and it gives a little definition and information about the required/optional parameters. But the exceptions are kind of a nuisance.

Road testing komodo ide for a team of 7

Spent some time with Komodo edit 8. Like it so road testing the full komodo ide.

Issue 1
It says it is meant to be able to handle git and auto pick up a git repos settings:
We're using source tree at the moment for our git needs.
I have opened the komodo project in the ide, everything works fine and it seems to have picked up all the settings from komodo edit nicely. The ide is picking the git repos and notices when a file has been changed. However when I try to push or pull i get username and permission errors.

Issue 2

What are these/how can I disable them?

Sorry for the vague title, but I get these icons - sort of like plus signs inside misshapen eggs - next to the line numbers whenever I make an edit on the corresponding line:

It follows the last ~5 lines I touch in a sort of annoying trail. I have no idea what to call them (and I don't remember ever seeing it in older versions of Komodo Edit, which I still have/use occasionally), hence my vagueness both in the title and here.

8.5 Very slow when clicking between tabs

I recently upgraded to this build.
Komodo IDE, version 8.5.1, build 82125, platform macosx.
Built on Tue Sep 17 01:46:31 2013.

OS X 10.8.4

The problem I am experiencing is an appox 10 - 15 second delay when switching between tabs of open files. I have tried rebooting my Mac to be sure it's not related to anything else. This happens when only Komodo IDE is running. It used to be instant feeling when switching between tabs.

here is a dump of my log file

[2013-09-18 20:03:44,932] [WARNING] koInitService: Unable to determine the current locale settings, defaulting to mac-roman

Macro save trigger to run rsync command in Komodo


I have been using Komodo for a few months now and only just learnt about triggering macros on save! Awesome tool!

Is it possible to run an rsync command from the macro does anyone know?

I don't know how to write python yet and am assuming that i would not be possible to run an rsync command from a javascript based macro?

I am wanting to push all saved changes of files into a vm box automatically.

The rsync line I need to run is:
rsync -av --delete --filter=':- .gitignore' /git/ me@local.mydomain:/usr/local/www/apache24/data/trunk/

Komodo won't start for managed user in Mac environment

We're testing out the free version of Komodo at our school. Client computers are running Mac OS 10.8 and students work directly on a network login controlled by Active Directory with their home folders on an SMB share. When starting Komodo as an admin user on the client computer it starts, no problem. When a student, whose account is managed and has no write ability outside his home folder, tries to start Komodo the icon in the dock bounces a couple of times, quits and the program doesn't open. No error is written to the "all messages" of the log file in console.

Hangs when switching tabs on remote files


I love the new Komodo edit 8.5, BUT it seems to hang for few seconds when I switch between tabs on many remotely opened files.

I am just guessing but it seems like it's refreshing the status bar at the bottom to show the remote file dir. Is there a way to disable this delay when a tab is switched on a remote file.

It hangs for me even on a faster connection :(

This is the main reason I've moved back to old version of komodo edit.

Please fix this soon.
