Help. The interface is broken.¶
Tabs are overlapping. Text is distorted. The sidebar is broken. Colors are wrong. What happened?
- Sublime Text’s interface is completely customizable. Everything is controlled through a sublime-theme file. A fresh copy of Sublime Text comes with a file called Default.sublime-theme located in the User directory (Preferences > Browse Packages); however, you may find yourself installing user-made theme files down the road.
- So how does this tie in to the problem? Something is wrong with either your theme file or your preferences files.
- Check your preferences file (Preferences > Settings - Default or Preferences > Settings - User). To make sure that your theme is set, look for the following::
Check to see there is a missing comma, incorrect spelling, or syntax issue. Remember, every parameter in the Preferences file needs a comma at the end (excluding the last one). * If there is nothing wrong with the preferences file, then the problem lies in the theme-file. Your best option to restore the theme file is to do a fresh install (Revert Instructions) All is not lost though. If you simply take the new fresh Theme - Default file and copy it back into your Packages directory, you should be able to continue your coding endeavors right where you left off.
