Changing Ctrl+F to move forward on TextMate

I updated my version of TextMate a few days ago (to version 1.5.10) and on this new version they changed the Ctrl+F binding; it didn’t move forward one character as I wanted, à la Emacs.

This was driving me fucking crazy.

To fix it, I changed the key binding from a command on the Rails bundle that was taking precedence of the default ^F behavior.

Do this:

  • Bundles > Bundle Editor > Show Bundle Editor
  • Find a command called “Jump to Method Definition” and change its key binding. On my case, I changed it to Ctrl+Shift+F:

Voilà, that did the trick for me.
