Unindent Shift-Tab Shortcut Broken?

Jeffrey Van Alstine 7 years ago • updated by Adam Remer 5 years ago 6
For some reason my Shift-Tab unindent keyboard hotkey has stopped working.

This is on Ubuntu 10.10, Sublime Text 2 Build 2059

Default Key bindings:
{ "keys": ["shift+tab"], "command": "unindent", "context":
[{ "key": "text", "operator": "regex_contains", "operand": "\n" }]}

I didn't even know there was default (or user) key bindings before it broke, so I'm pretty sure it's not something I did.

CTRL+[ still works fine.
Could this be related to the new tab completion?

Voting for this because I have a bug here as well.


When I use shift+tab with multiple lines selected, it un-indents properly. But if no text is selected, and I do shift+tab, it actually has the same effect as pressing tab. It indents the line.


Thanks and besides this issue I'm considering purchasing this editor (probably even if you don't fix this because I can just do ctrl+[ instead). In my short trial it has been very good.


For the record I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and 2059.

Same on Ubuntu.

It's critical for me.

shift+tab is working as designed.

There is a setting that can be used, shift_tab_unindent, to force it to work without multiline selections - it's worth reading the comments alongside this setting in the default file settings.
Thank you, it works.

when i use shift+tab it flickers i dont know why i tried ctrl+[ that doesnt work so what will?
