It would be awesome if the various user settings files could be stored as gist on github. That's what I'm doing now (keeping a copy of those files on github), but it would be awesome if I didn't have to periodically apply them to all my machines.

It could be done for example by putting a file in ~/.sublimetext on Unix systems (and a similar place on Windows) for example. For github, user's API token (or whatever's needed) could be stored there and ST2 would go then ahead and read/save files from instead of the local FS.

Those who'd like to use this would then only need to copy that one file to their machines and get the benefit of having shared settings.

I would like to paste hyperlinks into sublime text and save it in html. I would also like to print to pdf if possible

I guess this is bit unconventional for traditional text editors, but would there be any support for option that allows making empty lines smaller than lines with text? For example, their height could be half of a normal line, though this would be a pixel height setting that could be set by user.

This would allow for much more clearer structuring of code, since normally using empty lines for structuring is not that precise.

I'm testing Sublime text 2 in ubuntu 32, but in 64 bits it opens but any menu doesn't appear. I can't find the solution.

It would be wonderful if you could predefine a keymap preference. I have the (bad?) habit of switching between Swedish and US keymaps when I'm working on different things, for instance I code with a US keymap and write prose with a Swedish keymap. And for ever newly opened file it defaults back to the OS default, which can be a tad annoying. Currently on OS X 10.7.4.
Not a bug

Hi. Sublime text editor plugins don't work in Linux. For example i use Zen Coding plugin (, but this doesn't work. Please fix this bug

That's a plugin for Sublime Text 1. Sublime Text 2 uses a different plugin system.

I've written a plugin which replaces the selected regions with some other content. Now I would like to reselect the results to show the user what has been replaced. How can I do this?

see Mac email client.

how about an option to show 1 or 2 lines of text from the current location in each open file in the sidebar

Only enable when the sidebar is expanded beyond a certain size.

This preview text would be in a small, faint font so as not to distract from the filename itself


With this multiple views into file this could do a similar job to bookmarks, or could almost be like a textual "Expose"

When working in fullscreen mode I sometimes want to know the current time and day (number) without going elsewhere. Showing something like "13:37, 14" or "1:37 pm, 14" sitting at the right of the status bar would be enough.
What do you think? Nonsense? Overkill? Useful?

I'd like the option to drag the status bar in OSX to move the main Sublime window around, similar to Finder / Safari.
