Sublime Text 2 is a text editor for OS X, Linux and Windows, currently in beta.


Tab width: any width

Robert L 6 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 6 years ago 0
Simple column-like formatted texts and languages, assembly is one example, can benefit from wider tab widths; an option to freely set any tab width would be useful.

This can be done with the tab_size file setting

Scroll wheel sensitivity config

Lucas Neil Brown 5 years ago 0
On the Windows version I've noticed that using the scroll wheel isn't as sensitive as I'd like it (especially coming from Notepad++ that zooms around). It would be great if there as a way to configure this!

trigger right click from keyboard

random_person 6 years ago 0
is it possible, or would it be possible to add, the ability to trigger a right click (command click) from the keyboard? i hate using a mouse so to be able to select some text and then from the keyboard trigger a command click would be fantastically useful. (a feature from TM)

Window Switching Hotkey

Daniel Sont 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
Can there be an OS independent hotkey to focus window 1 or window 2...etc.

This would be handy, as I often don't know which window I have focused and alt+tab always just switches instead of goes do a definite one.

Furthermore.. maybe instead you could do hotkeys for each grid element.

so if I had it set up like this
 ______    _______
|A  |  B |    | C |   D|
|    |     |     |     |     |
|______|    |______|

It would be super cool if I had a configurable independent hotkey for each (ctrl alt a, ctrl alt b, ctrl alt c, ctrl alt d) or something.

easy drag table creator

Andy T 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
I/we do a lot of email builds which means we have to use tables a lot :-(
Having an MS word type drag over ui to decide the rows and columns of a table would really speed things up.
We use Edit plus at the moment and it has it, we would not be able to move away to a tool without it.
if it's an option it would really save the day for your awesome editor to have it.

Installing sublime text plugins all at once

Ishan Shah 5 years ago 0

Is there a way to install all the sublime text 2 plugins that you would like to install all at once. In Notepad++, there is a plugin manager which lets you install all the plugins you want to install by checking the box next to the plugin name & description. I was wandering if there is something like that for sublime text.

For eg, I would like to install Zen Coding, JQuery Package for Sublime Text, Sublime Prefixr, JS Format, SublimeLinter and many other plugins all at once rather than typing each plugin in the Package Control and installing it one by one.


Quitting should be able keep unsaved files like "Close Project" or project switching does

Oktay Acikalin 7 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 7 years ago 0
When closing a project or switching to another project unsaved files are kept in their state. But if I quit slt2 it asks me to save them. It would be nice to also "keep unsaved changes" like it's already done for the two actions mentioned above.

You can use "Hot Quit" (OS X), or "Hot Exit" (Windows / Linux) for this

Sublime Text 3's new Goto Anything hangs!

Sublime Text 3's new Goto Anything hangs!

Jesus Christ!

Sublime Text 2's Goto Anything (usually Ctrl-P) never hanged. Come on!

Sublime Text 3 boasts of 

  • "Improved matching algorithm used for Goto Anything and auto-complete accepts transposed characters"
but my virgin experience with this version is lag. This is not what I would call an improved algorithm.


Find in Files to open in new dialog

James Brooks 7 years ago • updated by bronson 5 years ago 4
Currently the resultset of Find In Files will open in the "Console". To me this is annoying since I may then want to use the console or find again now that I can reference something.

Perhaps show it in one of those popups?
