Textmate, Coda etc all have a very useful option to open the currently right-clicked file in another app. This would be really useful to me because I edit CSS in another app & currently have been using the Finder to open the files. If I could do that from within Sublime it would be brilliant.
It's very handy since you do a lot of back and forth while editing code, and you don't have to 'remember' to set a bookmark.
it's hard to do since you have to decide what to do in cases such as file and lines deletion.
What I mean is when I type text, it is very slow to appear and it appears in bursts. Same thing with erasing and scrolling. Kind of like network lag in video games. This is on a fresh install on Ubuntu 12.04 with no plugins. The system is fast otherwise with a fast cpu and 16 gigs of ram.
After I erase all the settings reverting to "fresh install", it is fast for about two minutes on a normal text file and then becomes very slow again.
If you look at the link I include below you will see that it has a visual panel that comes up and lets you click on the different changes and branches and see what you had where. This allows the user to easily pluck deleted code from the history and add it back in without all that undoing and saving a bunch of other snippets into open blank document windows that you might have to do now.
Also, being able to use a diff tool on this would be even better so that you can see the differences between two different points in history or between the current version and a different point in history.
A preview, while moving my mouse , or up-down keys on the menu items would be very helpful for those who would like to play around with themes like me..
I'd like to be able to set up the project so that the two folders are pinned to the project sidebar and the two files as well - right now, when adding a file to the sidebar, the file gets openend instantly and is not pinned. Is there a way to do that?
There is window.open_file() that can be used for opening .sublime-project files. However, it opens the file to a new tab for editing. The suggested window.open_project() would work differently. Instead of opening the file to the tab, it would act similarly if Project - Open Project... had selected from the toolbar.

TextMate's was a bit messy because these colors were global. You had to add names (classes?) globally in Preferences. It would be nice if you could specify which names were colored in the language and what the default color is. Then when you view this "wizard" it shows you the options based on the current language (TextMate mixes functions with Markup). From there you could customize a color scheme for a language, or globally (for those that share names).
- Indent css properties by "X" tab/spaces
- Each property on separate line (on/off)
- Opening brace on separate line (on/off)
- All selector for a rule on same line (on/off)
- Blank line between lines (on/off)
I have yet to find any code editor that implements some of the interesting features that IA Writer has.
Some things of note are the following. I have included the time at which it occurs in the IA Writer video (http://www.iawriter.com/):
- Theme option to toggle menus off as you start coding (:20 seconds)
- Focus Mode: as you click on blocks of code or type within a block of code, the surrounding code would dim via an opacity setting. (:35 seconds)
