Being able to maneuver multiple cursors is really awesome. The following is a list of things that I think would be really, really great :)

  • Make is possible to focus cursors when multiple exists (i.e. leave some of the multiple cursors idle). This could be activated by clicking the cursor you want to focus with your mouse while holding down some keys but preferable some hotkeys should exist as well. Once a single cursor has the focus it would also be great with hotkeys for focusing the previous/next cursor
  • Make it possible to spawn a new cursor at the some position as the current one(s) leaving the old one(s) idle. This could work a quick bookmark functionality together with the previous suggestions but I could find a lot of other fun uses like pre/post-fixing a word at the same time: spawn cursor, ctrl + w, ctrl + f, extend cursor selection to previous cursor, start typing.

I would really like to see a portable version of Sublime2 that can be run from a USB on any computer!

Licensing dev releases in my opinion is not the best idea. Most of us it's using to make test on it. Help during development create some ideas. 

In other hand paying for not stable (development) release it's no really a best idea either. I'm really looking forward to pay for sublime. But not when the future is a bit fogy.

It's very annoying. It opens a window alert every time that I open this editor because there is another new version.

Why don't make Sublime Text open-source? Or almost make it free?
For me, TextMate is better than Sublime Text, and Textmate is now open-source.

It would be great to do Sublime Text open-source too...

Every change made to the text file is saved automatically, no need to keep saving the file.

Saves having to hit apple+s before going to your browser and hitting refresh — for instance.

JSON should not allow comments in files. (Maybe this has been fixed already.)
