Sidebar file actions are limited to Delete/Rename for some reason. One of the most common tasks when working with projects is rearranging files or folders inside your project directory. Any time I need to quickly move files between folders, I can do it via fast sidebar drag-and-drop in pretty much ANY IDE or programmer editor (like Textmate). Except for ST2, for all its other niceties. Every time I need to copy or move a file I have to take detour into Finder which is VERY frustrating.

This is pretty much THE only missing feature preventing me from buying the product. I'd guess this is a showstopper not only for me but for many other people considering lack of this essential feature as a sign of product immaturity, to put it simply.

It would be nice if you could add Sublime Text 2 to the Ubuntu package repositories so everyone can just install it using apt-get or the Ubuntu Software Center.

When auto completing a function pop up a small off-set message of the parameter inputs.
ex: foo( int a, real b ); // declared above
when foo auto-completed "foo(" is put and a message shows "foo( int, int )"

Finding text inside my selection is never what I want to do, and yet it happens by default if anything is selected.

This makes me think that text doesn't exist in my code, when it actually does.

It's particularly bad because if I've just searched for something else, the result is *selected* and I have to clear the selection before I can proceed!

Make use of fallback fonts so that Japanese (and Chinese, etc.) can be displayed if the currently used font doesn't support those characters.

Sublime Text looks like the perfect editor for something like the Raspberry Pi. I use it considerably on my desktop and laptop, and it would be great to be able to use it on my other platforms as well.

In the user-defined .tmTheme files, fontStyle seems to only accept bold and italic at the moment. Adding support for underline would be greatly appreciated.

Currently, dragging the last file file from a window to a different or new window leaves behind an empty window, which in the vast majority of cases you'll want to close. I suggest closing the window automatically once the last file has been removed.

I've got many Situations where i want to insert Images to my Project, when i select an Image i get the preview of the includet data as Text. It would be nice, if you provide the functionality to get a preview of images. Maybe you use the file extention as trigger, or you read the file header to check if a different preview is needed.

This feature could be used for several other files like .pdf, .mp3 (audio files in general), .mp4 (video files in general) or even .ttf (font files in general).

This functionality would be pure epicness!

It would be nice if bookmarks were shown in the minimap or on the editor pane scroll bar. 

Thanks!

It's be great if the replace option could also work in all currently open files, in addition to per-file as it is right now.

I usually develop with whitespace characters always enabled, but the default look of them in Sublime Text is rather distracting -- it would be nice to make them more transparent like Eclipse Indigo now offers.

A semi-intelligent case-sensitivity mode for searches as option, like in Emacs, where, if I type the word to search in all-lowercase, it will search case-insensitively and as soon as I type something containing uppercase, it will search case-sensitively exactly for what I typed.

I was searching for a ftp/sftp plugin just like Zend Studio 5.5 / Notepad++ etc. I stumbled upon this thread: http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5846

Because it isn't yet possible for a plugin to add custom items to the sidebar such a plugin can't be created.

An option to paste formatted text from clipboard. For example, the Visual Studio productivity power tools copies code in both plain text and HTML format (syntax colored) to the clipboard
In SublimeText (and I think almost in every text editor), you can only paste the plain text version. However, I would love to be able to paste the HTML formatted text (text including the HTML tags).
So essentially as MS-Word like "Paste special" functionality.

QuickCursor is an application from Hog Bay Software that lets you pull the text out of any text field (in any application that uses native Cocoa text fields) and edit it in your editor of choice. Currently it supports BBEdit, Espresso, MacVim, Smultron, SubEthaEdit, TextMate, TextWrangler, and WriteRoom.

Please add support for the ODB Editor Suite that is required so that QuickCursor can support Sublime Text 2 as well!

I'd like to be able to right-click on a file in the project sidebar and duplicate the file.

And instead of just making a new file called "somefile_copy.php", show the rename panel, allowing the user to specify the new filename straight away.
