One cannot see which tab triggers have been defined when browsing the snippets menu. It would be nice to see them there, too.

In 2165, the snippets menu has been replaced with the Command Palette, which does show the tab trigger

Confirming which git branch I'm in at a glance would be spectacular. Mock-up here:

I've done some searching and have come up with nothing other than the current plugin that is lacking the rest of the SVN functionality. (https://github.com/burriko/sublime-subversion)

Would also love to see Git integrated into Sublime Text 2. Many of my projects use SVN and many use Git. I love that Textmate gives me the abilty to use both within the editor. 

This is and code folding are 2 things lacking from Sublime, but other wise I am LOVING it. Great job.

Kind of like how Chrome's find on page feature shows you where to scroll, it'd be nice to have a yellow line or something appear on the minimap for matches.

This has already been added for OS X, but not for Windows (at least Windows 7 x64) and possibly not for Linux.

ST should automatically ask for admin password, if not already running as admin, when saving to a folder that requires admin privileges.

Created this new topic as other ones are already marked as completed.

Here is link to previous completed suggestion: 27820-prompt-if-need-elevated-permission-to-save

Being able to sort files in the sidebar by modification time would make it super-easy to find and edit recently and frequently modified files, without ever having to leave Sublime Text.  Would be especially handy for folders with lots of files.

Currently the only way to duplicate a block of code is to go through a tedious process of select->copy->go down->unindent if needed->paste.

ST1 had a plugin (poweredit) that made Ctrl+Sift+D duplicate currently selected text if it's available. If not, it would duplicate current line. This is super useful and productive feature and I think must come by default with ST2.

When plugin uses add_regions API, sometimes tabs row or icons on the gutter (or both) disappear.

This bug was detected among the majority of Sublime versions and on all platforms.

Unfortunately it appears randomly. I can't tell how to reproduce it except using plugins that draw icons on the gutter (like Modific).

maybe a global preference to disable animations on side bar?

The tree_animation_enabled global setting was added in 2139 to control this

 Thanks very much for implementing the 'gutterForeground' setting in build 2020. Allowing setting the colour of line numbers to other than a modified version of the 'foreground' setting is awesome.

Would it be possible to do the same for the vertical ruler colour setting?

In some uses having a vertical rule establishing the tab settings is very useful and for that case I would like to set a colour a shade or two away from the background so the readability of the text is maintained.

In some uses the ruler being brightly highlighted would be ideal.

If I was able to set the ruler colour then these different cases could be handled better than the current fixed setting allows.

Thanks for any time considering this and especially for any time implementing it if you choose to do so.

It would be nice to have API that can add stuff to sidebar. 
For example, I want to make a plugin that display Ruby on Rails projects not by its directory structure but in logical one, i.e. templates under controllers, etc
I thing it would be useful for many kinds of plugins such as VCS systems, FTP plugins and more

Option to display a subtle border around the minimap to help distinguish between the content and the minimap (same as in Sublime Text 1)
Jon Skinner 6 years ago
A shadow is now added when required to separate the minimap from the buffer

Add a means of editing/viewing binary and text files in hexadecimal.

Off hand, that looks to be the only feature missing from everything I regularly use in UltraEdit.

Just like in notepad++ or aptana. Many developers work on remote servers and current ftp plugin is so time consuming... Please!

Being able to open another pane, similar to the file browsing pane, with the list of symbols in the current file would be handy. The Go to anything feature is handy in files you know well, but having the list for new code makes life easier.

The holy grail of C/C++ text editors is to integrate with Clang/libclang and parse the code the way the compiler does--by actually compiling the code.  This would enable extremely expressive syntax highlighting, continuous build error reporting, and full refactoring, without having to maintain one's own parser.

if an xml file has an xsd designation that is accessible (i.e. in same directory as the xml file) it would be wonderful to have the ability to validate against that xsd and also to have autocomplete as suggested by the xsd.

Closing tabs should work the same way as it does in Google Chrome.
Before you say anything: I am not talking about moving the tabs to the title bar like this post suggests.
The cool thing about the tab closing behaviour is, that the tabs only resize once you leave the tab area. If they all have the same size, the cursor is directly beneath the next close button, once you have closed a tab.
There is a nice blog entry about why Chromes tab closing behaviour is really nice, so I think I will just leave it at that and post the link.
(Maybe this could also be implemented for the "Open files" area? This way the files don't move under your cursor when you are opening multiple files.)

I have a load of files that are throwbacks from the days of double-space indentation. I now use tabs (tab width 2).

I've set my default indentation type to tabs and set it not to autodetect indentation:
    "auto_indent": true,
    "detect_indentation": false,
    "tab_size": 2,
    "translate_tabs_to_spaces": false

It'd be great if, upon loading a file with space-based indentation, it'd detect it and convert to tabs for me. As it stands, I'm having to notice the spaces and use "Convert indentation to tabs" which is a great feature, but it'd be great to have it automatic.

Maybe I have my settings wrong. I thought detect_indentation might be key here, but it appears to simply detect the file's indentation method and override the default with that (which is actually what I would expect, so I'm not complaining there).

Hopefully that makes sense.
