This has already been added for OS X, but not for Windows (at least Windows 7 x64) and possibly not for Linux.


ST should automatically ask for admin password, if not already running as admin, when saving to a folder that requires admin privileges.


Created this new topic as other ones are already marked as completed.


Here is link to previous completed suggestion: 27820-prompt-if-need-elevated-permission-to-save

I can confirm that this does not work in linux.

I want to point out, as in the original topic, that if the file does not exist, but the write permissions of the directory require root (or admin for windows I suppose) that it just gives an error instead of elevating privileges to write to the directory.

On windows, if the file already exists, it just displays a dialog saying it is unable to save the text file...


and if the file doesn't already exist, it displays a dialog saying that you don't have permission to save in this location, with the option to save in My Documents folder instead...

For informational purposes, another text editor I use, EmEditor, informs you admin permission is needed and offers the option to elevate - for both existing and new files (note: the whole text editor doesn't elevate, it uses a separate process to perform the save)...

This basic issue is a year old. It has been fixed for Mac and marked as completed (Apple is all that counts?). This has got to be a joke. I paid 60$ for a text editor that is not taken care of at all. Last update has been half a year ago and I keep running into basic issues. Really......

Support for Linux would be awesome!

+1 for Windows support please.

This would be awesome, still stuck with "sudo vim" for stuff I want to edit with superuser permissions.

As a workaround on Linux, you can try something like this:

EDITOR="subl -w" sudo -e /etc/hosts

What I do, and is really not comfortable, is: change files/folders permissions to me, edit/save, return them to apache. Maybe my situation could be improved, hw, it was the only solution I was able to do.... (just working with linux for a month :-/)
