The bug has been reported here:
http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12451&p=49645

There seems to be a problem for (some?) Mac and Linux users with the Sidebar
not showing any files.

Seen in:

  • Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit
  • OSX
  • Windows 7 64 bit - portable

This bug did not occur in build 3021 first seen in 3033 and latest version I have tried is 3047.

Not seeing any files in the sidebar makes the current builds unusable for me.

I don't know what other info could be relevant, so if there's anything I can add, please let me know.

I'm having similar sidebar problems in Ubuntu 13.04 64bit.

I see often the root folders, or sometimes I only see the project folder, or sometimes none.

If I try to expand a folder, the icon changes and nothing else seems to happen. If I resize the sidebar after doing so, I can see the text from the expanded folder overlapping the other folders in the root directory.

@ShawnMcCool Can you try to reinstall Package Control with the latest version and upgrade Theme - Soda (in case you use them?) This solved it for me.

Its not solved, it just doesnt happen always anymore at a clean startup. It seems to be caused after switching project now.

I have the same issue as ShawnMcCool on Windows 7 64bits with a portable installation of ST3 Build 3047.

It happens usually after switching project, and sometimes persist after closing and restarting ST3.
In the latter case, removing the file Data/Local/Session.sublime_session resolve the issue, at the cost of losing all history, opened files, etc.

That sounds as the exact same issue like i have. now that we have noticed this bug at 3 different OSs, I think we can conclude this might be a serious thing, not OS-dependant.

Could it possibly be caused by a package (perhaps a theme?) somehow?

I was able to resolve it (at least temporarily) by opening a new workspace, which might be similar to deleting the session file.

I have had the same problem (including in ST3 build 3059) on MacOS. I first saw it when switching from ST2 to ST3 beta. As a workaround I've found that deleting my workspace files allows me to open the associated project files without problem. But it'd be nice if the code was more robust about handling workspace files it doesn't like.

Maddening, isn't it? My projects keep losing their files. In most cases I can just delete the workspace file and it starts working again, but in one case I had to generate a new project file.

I think I know what happens:
If a project is opened in SublimeText 2, then in SublimeText 3, the workspace file may have become incompatible !

I don't think it's as simple as ST2 vs ST3 because I never run SublimeText 2, yet some of my projects still get corrupted. Nonetheless, I did see it more when I was transitioning from ST2 to ST3, so it does appear to be one cause. I synch those files between home and work and I wonder if that somehow contributes (though my config is the same in both places). I should probably exclude those files from synch.

It would be great if ST3 could recognize a corrupt workspace file and rebuild it, instead of silently failing in this awkward way. I also wish ST3 would save its workspace files someplace else, as that would make it easier and safer to synch and share project files.

I’ve found what triggers this, and how to keep it from happening.

This issue seems to be related to the View > Side Bar > Hide/Show Open Files option, which is stored in the project workspace file.

When you switch between projects where this option is set differently (i.e. switch from a project with Show Open Files selected to a different project with Hide Open Files selected), the workspace (and the sidebar file display) becomes corrupt.

The work-around is to make sure that all of your projects are configured either to Hide Open Files or Show Open Files in the sidebar. As long as you don’t mix the two, your workspace should never become corrupt.

In my case I can't show the sidebar if the "Show open files" option is not active. Plus deleting both the workspace and the session file hasn't produced any positive effect.

like @jpsandiego, I have also only just started having this issue with the latest update (Build 3065, Windows 7 32bit, ST3 Portable) and the added icons.

It happens after switching Projects. However, I can get the folder/file list to show again just by hitting the Alt key, but this isn't a permanent workaround as I then get lots of garbage as I open/close sub-folders...

I've had the same problem, ST3 (never used ST2 on this machine) on Mac OS 10.9.2. Sometimes no files are listed. Other times it does this:

Plugins don't seem relevant, and it happens a lot more on large projects. Closing the app, waiting a minute, and reopening usually helps for a while.

Getting back into graphics programming this reminds me of what happens when the graphics buffer is not cleared before drawing the next frame. The canvas might have been restored from ?cache? and then drawn on without clearing it first.

Fixed it with rm ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Local/Session.sublime_session

Only downside is that I lost my file history.

This happens to me on Windows 7 with Sublime 3.

My workaround is to open my .sublime_workspace file and empty out the "expanded_folders" key, so that it looks like so:

    "expanded_folders":
    [
    ],

I'd imagine a similar change within the .sublime_session file would work if not using a saved workspace.

@robkorv, @eliveikis: While clearing the problematic session will allow you to work around the issue temporarily, the next time you switch between two projects that have a different ‘Side Bar > Hide Open Files’ setting, your sidebar will become corrupted again.

The only persistent fix for this at the moment is to follow the steps I posted above to make this setting consistent across all your projects.

I resolved my case, where files under 'Open Files' would eventually vanish when mouse clicking the project directory tree or by control+pagedown.. By removing the following from User/Preferences:

@sentience: I've just encountered this bug the first time in several months and your workaround fixed it - although I still have no idea how "Hide open files" got into my workspace settings. I'd recommend to solve it with "find in files": Filter .sublime-workspace, replace ("show_open_files":\s*)false with \1true.

Is anybody still working on this software? This bug has been around for two and a half years.

Fixed by find/replacing "show_open_files": false, and "show_open_files": true, with a blank line in all my *.sublime-workspace and *.sublime-project files and starting all my projects off fresh.

Luckily, I keep all my project/workspace files in a folder.

I have a variation on this happening to me now.
Sublime 3114, though it started happening with the previous build.

I never change show/hide open files (always on) and do not use workspaces.
When I select Open folder... it only shows the files within that folder, never any subfolders.

This makes working on projects an incredible pain!

Edit: deleting the expanded_folders section of .sublime_session had no effect.

I just had this bug happen to me on os x yosemite 10.10.5 with sublime text 3 build 3126. It happened after I pressed "Open Recent > Clear Items". Even after resetting the program it persisted.

Deleting the workspace files fixed the problem and returned the files/folders to my sidebar and it seems to be working fine now. If it keeps coming up I will report back.

Happening to me now after following the directions on https://packagecontrol.io/docs/syncing and using git as the sync method. My packages synced correctly, but so far my projects are not syncing correctly. It shows the project name, but the root directory for each project is just empty in the ST3 sidebar. I had to delete the projects and add them again. Kind of annoying.

I switch between two projects all the time. Just created a third project with a single file in it. I don't see how this can be called "closed".

@Pointy Can you open a new issue with a bunch of details about your situation? We've had very, very many commits to the codebase since build 3107. Ideally you'd include the contents of your console, what types of filesystems your project is located on, etc.

@wbond my apologies - it's been like a year and a half since I started a new project (which seems amazing when I think about it), but my problem was starting sublime with subl foo.js instead of subl . in the project directory. I'll probably remember that for another year and a half. Thank you for noticing my comment however :)

One thing people should be aware of is their system limit for inotify, I think most distributions set this to 8092 or something quite low. If you've got any time of file synchronization utility running, its likely eating up all of those resources and not allowing sublime to watch the folders/files in the project tree.
