TextMate allows you to specify line-endings. If you do SaveAs, Line Endings is an option. Classic Mac is CR, Windows is CRLF and Unix is LF. It is often useful to change line-endings of legacy files or to set up line-endings for picky servers.

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.

Everytime you click somewhere, your history save the file and the line. then you can go backward and forward, just like in a Web browser.

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.

I'd like to see an option which would put SublimeText 2 into a hidden but ready to launch mode when closing it (on Windows).  It takes several seconds to start, so it would be nice if 'closing' the app could hide it (perhaps to the tray) to speed startup.

The minimap colors should be part of the color scheme... on a white background, the current dark highlight is very intrusive.
Personally, I would prefer being able to set a color overlay for the non-visible portion, rather than the visible portion, but either way, it should be configurable like minimapBorder is.

I would like to see a document history tree feature like the one used in E-TextEditor. It allows for an undo history with a visual tree you can navigate through including branches. Add this with a diff feature to compare them and that would rock.

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.

I had to click on preferences->color scheme->theme and the menu closes as soon as we select a theme.
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'm working in a WordPress directory structure. For a project (usually a theme), the main elements I'm working with are one or two folders within the directory structure plus two separate files.

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?

Edit files on server through a reverse SSH connection like rmate in Textmate 2

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.


class FooCommand(sublime_plugin.WindowCommand):

    def run(self, *args, **kwargs):

I suppose the closest to this is like a standard file explorer in the left sidebar. to have it open the main drive or some directory, where you can navigate the file system. This is the normal activity in coda, and would be like the sidebar in windows explorer file manager. 

It would be cool to have this as a togglable option in the View menu. So the current ability to show the projects would still be there. When using the file manager you could possibly right click a directory and select "Add as Project" which would then bookmark the directory into the projects area.

Would be nice if Sublime had a theme editor similar to TextMate's "Fonts & Colors" in Preferences.

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).

It will be great to have a built in feature for configuring some of this coding styles aspects:
- 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 would love it if you copied textmate's soft tabs.  I don't want to convert entire files to spaces or tabs and make the file history confusing and/or break other people's indentation that they like.  I just want sublime to auto-detect the tab size and when i'm at the beginning of the line and press the left or right arrow key, it should jump over 4 spaces and look like i'm jumping over a tab.  Another way to put this is that I would love it if my cursor jumped between TAB guides at the beginning of the line.

Thank you for building a life-changing code editor!  My life has been so much easier the last two weeks.

I have some large (~10mb) JSON files, and Sublime doesn't seem to be able to load them in a reasonable amount of time. After they've been prettified (tabs/newlines added) they do load properly, so it's possibly because there are no newlines. Not a huge deal but it would be nice if they loaded as is.

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)
