Paste (super+v) should duplicate text if selection = pasted text

aristidesfl 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 4

When you paste some text on top of a different piece of text, the selection gets replaced by the pasted text, and this is useful.

If the pasted text is equal to the selected text, nothing happens, thus not useful. 
What I purpose is to smarten up this behavior by evoking the duplicate command (super+shift+d) when the selected text is equal to the pasted text. 

This would allow for people to use Copy+Paste instead of having to learn a new shortcut (super+shift+d).

This ability would extend also to duplicate line should this related feature  get implemented along.

A new search/replace dialog, the current one is unusable

Zic 6 years ago 0
I am constantly trying to use Sublime, but I always fail when I want to do a simple search and replace. I end up opening TextMate and copy all the text and do the search/replace then copy back the result.

API: Settings.set should cast strings to the appropriate type

For example, Settings.set("word_wrap", "false") should be interpreted as Settings.set("word_wrap", False).

Take a look at the Edit/Comment menu to see the key bindings that will do this.

Luis Lavena 7 years ago • updated 7 years ago 6
Hello, I love the Sparkle integration on OSX, but when I switch to Windows, I need to manually download it :-P

I think will be possible offer an appcast for both 32 and 64bits versions using WinSparkle:

Thank you.

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!

Remove license from dev releases

Frankie The Coin 7 years ago • updated by bizoo 7 years ago 3

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.
