If indentation settings are "indent using spaces", then auto-indentation and the TAB key should insert spaces.
When a TAB character ("\t") is pasted from the clipboard, it should remain a tab character.
Add an option on the right-click menu at the Mac dock icon to open a new window.
Many apps on the Mac have some useful commands on the menu that appears when you right-click their icon on the dock, Sublime has none, but an option to open a new window would be really useful, specially when working with mission control spaces and you want a new sublime window on the current space.
"View" in the menu should mostly have options for presentation, not for changing the file.
When a newbie like myself wants to convert indentation to spaces or tabs, one would probably look under Edit and Tools.
Thanks very much for the awesome editor!
Currently, the results of a multi-file search end up in a temporary editor. It would be an *extremely* time-saving feature to have the ability to edit the files in-place, inside the search results window. Unfortunately it edits the search result editor's buffer, which can be saved on its own, but that's much less useful.
In fact, when I did my first search and got a whole bunch of results in a seemingly editable file, i thought I was being offered dozens of mini editors, and i was blown away. Then i was very disappoint.
"It may be worth doing this, but I'm concerned about confusing people: people may not know what a 'workspace' is, so they use the project functionality when they'd be better served by using workspaces." http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1444&p=6606#p6623
Sublime Text "internally" manages the state information for other aspects of the editor ("Auto Save Session", "Session"), so why not store the project definitions "externally" and the current state (workspace) "internally"?
By storing these separately, people could more easily share projects and could still have their own local workspaces.
The biggest issue I can see is the possibility of the project and the workspace getting out of sync (if one of the files is moved to a different location).
This was done in build 2111
Project folders require a manual update for the contents to be viewed. This seemed to have been introduced in 2.0. Please see this technical support discussion.
When opened file was modified externally ST2 makes Revert and looses the scroll position. It makes impossible to watch for the log files changes if it is being periodically updated externally. Scroll position should be restored after the file refresh.
An option to keep sublime window on top of other windows and applications, its really annoying how i have to look for sublime window each time, when i have too many application opened (on win7).
It would be great if there were a snippet variable for various dates (current date, file creation date, file last-modified date) in order to craft informative file-heading comments that give away some clue as to the age of a file and how often it's updated.
