Ability to configure the transparency of whitespace characters like Eclipse.

I usually develop with whitespace characters always enabled, but the default look of them in Sublime Text is rather distracting -- it would be nice to make them more transparent like Eclipse Indigo now offers.

Intelligent case-sensitivity for searches

Markus Peter 6 years ago • updated by Brian Gallagher 6 years ago 4
A semi-intelligent case-sensitivity mode for searches as option, like in Emacs, where, if I type the word to search in all-lowercase, it will search case-insensitively and as soon as I type something containing uppercase, it will search case-sensitively exactly for what I typed.

Ability to set bookmarks by clicking on gutter

Hongli Lai 6 years ago • updated by Joseph Huckaby 5 years ago 4
I set bookmarks very often so that I can easily switch back and forth between two or three related places in the code. It would be nice if I can set bookmarks by clicking on the gutter (the place that shows line numbers). TextMate allows this: if I click on the gutter it will show a star on that line and that line is bookmarked.

Drag/Drop (reorder) files/folders via Project Sidebar

It would be awesome if you could drag/drop to reorder files and folders in the sidebar! 


ODB Editor Suite (QuickCursor) support on OS X

Kevin Yank 6 years ago • updated by aristidesfl 6 years ago 9
QuickCursor is an application from Hog Bay Software that lets you pull the text out of any text field (in any application that uses native Cocoa text fields) and edit it in your editor of choice. Currently it supports BBEdit, Espresso, MacVim, Smultron, SubEthaEdit, TextMate, TextWrangler, and WriteRoom.

Please add support for the ODB Editor Suite that is required so that QuickCursor can support Sublime Text 2 as well!


Code folding of one line functions

L0u1s 6 years ago • updated by Adrian Forte 9 months ago 5
You are now able to fold functions when there's more then 1 line of code.
It would be nice to also fold on-lined functions

Sort numbered files/folders in the sidebar correctly

Jeff Byrnes 6 years ago • updated by Daniel Baumann 5 years ago 28
Currently, a series of files or folders which are numbered are not sorted correctly in the sidebar if they enter the hundreds. For example:


While I know this is often how *nix systems sort, I think many would agree that the intent of a series of numbered folders would be to sort correctly, as if they were integers.

Minimap Width

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.

Allow hiding of the title bar

Andrew Rabon 6 years ago • updated by Jae Page 1 year ago 3
Basically make it more like Chrome and integrate the tabs and the title bar into one, to preserve pixels.
