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

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.

I have two files I want to compare opened in a two column layout and want them to scroll synchronously so that the same lines are shown in each column.

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.)

Support for the new MacBook Pro touchbar as soon as possible would be heavily beneficial to speed up my programming.

It's handy to be able to drag and drop to move/copy blocks of text.

A lot of times I have reusable code that relates only to a specific project and would love to create snippets for it but don't want to muddy up the snippet pool for all projects. It would be useful to have a way to create project based snippets.

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.

Haml highlighting works great but as soon as you put a :javascript block in haml it doesn't highlight the javascript at all.

Go to the python console and type "import ctypes" in build 2139 and you'll get:

>>> import ctypes
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File ".\ctypes\__init__.py", line 10, in <module>
ImportError: No module named _ctypes

Nice textured background for text editor )

Like paper or textile.

I find the ctrl+tab behavior a little hard to follow at times. Since we have ctrl+1/2/3 to change focus to different groups, could the behavior be changed (possibly via a setting) so that it only cycles through tabs in the current group?
Also, could we have a setting to make ctrl+tab cycle in the order the tabs appear, similar to Chrome.  In chrome I tend to order my tabs according to how often I'll be switching to them, it would be nice to be able to do the same with SublimeText.

There are a number of cases where auto-indent isn't correct in Clojure. Here are some examples:


Function arguments are supposed to be lined up. The vector should be lined up with the + sign, like this:

Another example is this:

when it should be:

This is just totally broken.  Notice how in the st2 formatted example, it's like the keywords are indented against the -> instead of the mongo/fetch function. It's pretty crazy. I'm sure there are more quirks but this is just what I ran into playing for a few minutes.

P.S. I apologize for pasting code elsewhere. I couldn't figure out how to format it nicely in uservoice.

Currently folders are sorted separately above files in the sidebar. Is there any way to have them interspersed? If not, then I suppose this is a feature request...

As described here: http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3629

Imagine having many files opened, but some of them are not currently in use, it would be easier to distinguish the active ones from the others if the background of tabs that are not in use will start to fade away.

The following image demonstrates the idea (the 2 last tabs faded due to inactivity). The tabs have different colors to demonstrate another idea (different colored tabs for each file type):

Please add the ability to hide the scroll bar(s). 

I barely use them, since it slows me down to use the mouse and if I use the mouse, i usually use the mousewheel.

Also, the vertical scrollbar is redundant with the minimap.
Jon Skinner 6 years ago

This can be done by setting the overlay_scroll_bars global setting to "enabled".

This was added in 2091

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 )"

When handling large sql files (25k lines and up) it takes a while (12 seconds+) to open the file and manipulate. Editing is also quite slow.

I'm not expecting miracles, but is there anything that can be done here? Maybe look at the file size and don't apply syntax highlighting initially for x mb size files and up?
Jon Skinner 6 years ago

This was fixed in 2091.

The SQL grammar file had a degenerate regex that could cause significant slowdowns.

As an eclipse user I really miss the Mylyn functionality (quick demo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEyjpDrHCjc)

In my mind a basic task-focused interface would cover:
1. task creation/import - I can define local tasks and there's an API for writing connectors that retrieve tasks from remote issue trackers
2. every task carries it's own persistent context (primarily which files are open) and when I activate a task the context is restored
