[snip] I like the short(one second) display of status messages in the status bar and I don't want to remove it.
When I save a file, that status bar "File ... saved" message appears and doesn't go away until I hit an arrow key. I'm not seeing a one second delay anywhere.
I tried it and I saw you need to wait for a delay _and_ hit a key or move the text cursor. I think this could be better if you can wait _or_ hit a key to suppress the message.
Anyway, I agree that the file saved message isn't that useful at this point. Maybe all file action related messages could be skipped. So, there are three possible solutions: a) just skip the file saved message in the status bar (not in the status window) b) skip all file action related messages in the status bar (not in the status window) c) add a preference to suppress all status messages in the status bar (also messages about find results and similars)
I would prefer solution a or b.
Just my 2 cents, but for consistency and also for avoiding too much redundancy, I like (b).
I also think a preference is welcome. Let me explain myself. Sometimes I work with several files and I need to make some minor changes like changing the charset of the file. In this case I'd like not to get a confirmation message as I need to see the charset of each file.
Sometimes I also need to make changes on a config file for example, and in this case I like to get the saving confirmation message.
My 2 cents.
