I had to restart TextMate 2 twice afterwards for the settings to take effect. – Daniel Beck Feb 10 '12 at 17:35
  1. Close the project drawer (view->hide project drawer)
  2. Move the application to the left of screen leaving little or no gap on the left but plenty on the right
  3. Open the project drawer - it should open on the right
