I had previously exchanged the default icon for a custom icon. Upgrading to the latest update, which included a new, official icon, did not change the icon used when I change between programs (Cmd-Tab) or in the Dock. I have...

  • checked if the update overwrote the custom icon and it did.
  • restarted the computer.
  • removed the .app and installed again.

Not sure what to try next.

Is the icon in the Dock correct? – slhck Mar 4 '12 at 10:38
@slhck No, the dock icon is also the old, custom icon. Forgot to add that to the question. – benregn Mar 4 '12 at 11:11
Try dragging the app from the dock, then pulling it back in. Could also try killall Dock from a Terminal then. – slhck Mar 4 '12 at 11:54
@slhck After I reinstalled Sublime, opened it, closed it and then opened it again, the correct, new icon showed up. So now it seems to be fixed. – benregn Mar 4 '12 at 13:44
Interesting -- probably best if you put that as an answer yourself! – slhck Mar 4 '12 at 13:50

What worked for me: reinstall Sublime Text 2, open, close and open again. Then the correct, new icon should show up.

To fix this problem, I did the following:

  1. Open Applications folder
  2. Right click Sublime Text app and click "Get Info"
  3. Open another finder window to the location of the .icns file you would like to use as replacement
  4. Drag the new .icns file over the default icon in the top left of the open "Get Info" window

...this should do it! Worked for me anyway, no reinstallation necessary
