Maybe I'm misunderstanding or missing a setting, but it appears things have have key bindings (Open File, Close File, etc.. don't appear) in the command palette.  This is frustrating as a new user, since I don't know all the shortcuts and why exclude these from the list?

When you're in the find box (Command-F), it would be nice if the shortcut key for 'Goto Anything' (Command P) still worked.

When right-clicking on a file tab, it would be useful to have "Open Containing Folder" like in Visual Studio

Im aware you can press CTRL+R and it opens a small window where you can type a function name or parts of a function name and it will take you to that function. However it seems to be limited only to the one file you have open. Having it work across every file of that format across the entire project/open folders would be very nice.
I understand that it would be a lot of code to make the minimap width dynamic (set in preferences or draggable) but what about 2 FIXED settings, narrow and wide?  For my old eyes, if the minimap were just 1/2" wider on my screen (50 pixels?) it would be even more useful for me.

When searching for a string in a file, the minimap also show highlighted results, but it's kinda hard to see. Maybe disable text syntax highlight in minimap when searching to make the search highlight stand out.

Allow the users to move the sidebar from the left to the right. I'm trying to leave Dreamweaver and I'm really used to have the sidebar on the right.

The minimap takes some real estate and isn't relevant while editing, but only when seeking for another file location.

The option to switch to relative line numbers (http://dlo.me/vim-with-relative-line-numbers/) would be great, especially with the new Vintage mode.

I wouldn't even mind a plugin to do this, but I'm not sure how to go about implementing it. Any hints?

I know packages like TextMate and DreamWeaver have this off the bat. Something like this would be great in Sublime Text 2. Pair this is predictive text, and it'd be a HUGE feature!

Hi, guys

Is it possible to extend plugin API for supporting syntax highlighting in plugins ? The main idea is to use SublimeClang plugin to make C++/C syntax highlighting more predictable and precise. it's really hard to achieve such a precise results as, for example, in Source Insight 3 using only regex and without having powerful parser.

As I see SublimeClang developers don't mind to make that functionality (https://github.com/quarnster/SublimeClang/issues/47) The only obstacle is absence of required API

Thank you

The new updates in Sublime Text 3 are fan-freaking-tastic.  I absolutely love using sublime.  The "Goto Symbol in Project" and "Goto Definition" are going to be huge timesavers for me.  I work on projects that involve C, CSS, HTML, Javascript, Lua, and large makefiles.  In particular, many C functions are called by Lua, but referred to as strings.  The "Goto Definition" is huge for being able to find the original C function being referred to.  Thank you.

While "Find in Files" does allow me to find all the references to a symbol by direct search, it would be nice to have a "Goto References" or "List References" option to quickly list all references to the symbol in the project as a faster method vs direct search.  I'm not sure if the project index is structured in such a way to make that easy.

I cannot praise Sublime Text 3 enough.  What an amazing piece of software.

I always have "Use Buffer" turned on when doing Find in Files.  I would like some keybindings to browse the Find Results buffer:
  • Go to next/previous search.  (A search begins with a line "Searching 999 files or foo" and ends with a line "42 matches across 21 files.")
  • Go to next/previous file.  (To the next line that contains a file name followed by a colon.)
  • Go to the next/previous search result.  (A line that contains the line number followed by a colon.)  Note that this is different from F4 -- I want the cursor to move in the Find Results buffer but not the corresponding find result to be opened.
What would also be cool would be advanced editing:
  • Delete current file from Find Results (= the file name heading plus all matches from that file).  Delete current search from Find Results (= the whole section from "Searching 99 files for" to "9 matches across 9 files").
  • Delete all but the current search (= the search I'm looking at) from Find Results.
  • Delete all but the most recent N searches from Find Results.
  • Fold all searches.
  • Fold all files based on matching file name criteria.  E.g. when searching in my Packages folder, I often get lots of matches in the SublimeCodeIntel package, and it would be cool if I could hide those all in one go.

FTP and SVN integration would be amazing. I currently use Coda, but I love some of the features in Sublime and would switch in a heartbeat if it included SVN and FTP.

Currently the minimap is static until you click on it, and the view jumps to the proportional location of the mouse. This is fine for smallish documents, but for very long docs (e.g. 2000 lines), clicking a visual representation in the minimap can end up scrolling somewhere totally else.

I suggest scrolling the minimap as the mouse moves over it such that where you click is where you will ultimately navigate to. Once you mouse off of it, it should go back to the current normal view.

IME input (for Chinese, Japanese, Korean) are broken under Linux.  Usually we use Ctrl+Space to switch within input methods, however it doesn't work under ST2.
It is a *SEREOUS* issue.  Please fix it!

Add the currently selected buffers bookmarks as a group in the sidebar. For long pages it would be so muck easier to click a link in the sidebar.

I would very much appreciate an API to build plugins that need user-interaction and therefore integrate nicely with the Sublime Text 2 UI. Something like "TM Dialog" of TextMate would in my opinion be a great addition for Sublime Text 2.

When you rename a file that's currently open from the sidebar, you currently have to close the tab and reopen the newly named file in order to start editing it.

Would it not make more sense to automatically reopen the file with the new name? Or at least make it an option?
