User Global.sublime-settings not working

Mark Hahn 7 years ago 0

I'm new to sublime and I can't get the user settings to work.  I know I'm using the correct file because it checks syntax when I save it.  I'm bringing up the file with "Global Settings - User" menu in preferences.

My file contents follow.  None of the options do anything ...

{ "highlight_modified_tabs": true, "tab_completion": true, "wrap_width": 100, "word_separators": "./\\()\"'-:,.;<>~!@#%^&*|+=[]{}`~?", "rulers": [100], "highlight_line": true, "match_brackets_angle": true, "default_line_ending": "unix"}

I'm on Windows vista and build 2126.

------------------------ EDIT --------------------------
When I moved them to the FILE settings instead of Global they worked.  Am I going to have to make these edits for every file?  What is the right way to do this?
