Agreed - have kept textmate around just for editing files like /etc/hosts - the way textmate prompts for elevated permissions on save is perfect.
Besides, it doesn't work even with sudo subl
TextMate says "Couldn't Save: The file <FILENAME> is read-only. Attempt to overwrite?" and offers "Overwrite" and "Don't Overwrite" as options.
Sublime can try to use UAC elevation to write the file
It does not prompt for files that do not exist already. ie subl /etc/somefile -- Unable to save. More details at http://sublimetext.userecho.com/topic/124701-prompt-for-elevated-permissions/
I'm on OS X
I was saving my files just fine, got prompted to purchase. I purchased a license and now it won't save anymore?!!!
Disappointed this has not been implemented for all OS's. It doesn't work on Windows 7 x64.
Looks like it's only been added for OS X.
This is a deal breaker for me.
For it to save in windows 7, you have to run sublime text as administrator. If you have the ST2 icon on the bottom start bar, Shift-right click on the sublime text 2 icon to get the run as administrator option.
I realise you can run it as admin to solve, but I don't want to run it as admin, and shouldn't have to. ST should automatically prompt for the admin password when saving to a folder that needs admin privileges (eg. like EmEditor)
This feature should have been implemented for all OS's rather than just for OS X.
As this has been marked completed, I have created a new suggestion topic here
Please up-vote this new topic if you want this feature implemented for all OS's.
My Mac OS version still doesn't have the ability to ask me for a superadmin password.
Just created a plugin solving this problem on windows and linux https://github.com/azubr/Superlime
