Scroll minimap on mouse-over

chaiguy 7 years ago • updated by 5 years ago 5
Currently the minimap is static until you click on it, and the view jumps to the proportional location of the mouse. This is fine for smallish documents, but for very long docs (e.g. 2000 lines), clicking a visual representation in the minimap can end up scrolling somewhere totally else.

I suggest scrolling the minimap as the mouse moves over it such that where you click is where you will ultimately navigate to. Once you mouse off of it, it should go back to the current normal view.

IME broken under Linux

Andrew Liu 6 years ago • updated by Yongdae Hwang 6 years ago 4
IME input (for Chinese, Japanese, Korean) are broken under Linux.  Usually we use Ctrl+Space to switch within input methods, however it doesn't work under ST2.
It is a *SEREOUS* issue.  Please fix it!

Provide a code outline like eclipse


Add bookmarks to sidebar

Agile Apricot 7 years ago • updated by Juliana 2 years ago 4
Add the currently selected buffers bookmarks as a group in the sidebar. For long pages it would be so muck easier to click a link in the sidebar.

Generic API for building UI based plugins.

Harald Lapp 7 years ago • updated by Hugo Schmitt 5 years ago 6
I would very much appreciate an API to build plugins that need user-interaction and therefore integrate nicely with the Sublime Text 2 UI. Something like "TM Dialog" of TextMate would in my opinion be a great addition for Sublime Text 2.

When renaming an open file from within sublime, switch to editing the file with the new name

Acorn 7 years ago • updated by Cédric ARNOULD 6 years ago 3
When you rename a file that's currently open from the sidebar, you currently have to close the tab and reopen the newly named file in order to start editing it.

Would it not make more sense to automatically reopen the file with the new name? Or at least make it an option?

Allow dynamic pane splitting instead/besides of pre made layouts

aristidesfl 7 years ago • updated by Hai Mac Duy 6 years ago 9
Instead of having a set of predefined layouts to choose from, a more flexible and fundamentally simple way (from the user's point of view) would be to have actions for horizontal and vertical splitting.

This would simplify the split pane mechanics (from a usability perspective), and facilitate a more spontaneous workflow. 


Titles on minimap

Ivan Galyatin 6 years ago • updated by synect 5 years ago 1
It would be cool if i could put a special comment, like:
//! some comment
and it will be visible as a title on a minimap.

Puppet syntax

Please add Puppet language syntax support (similar to Ruby but not quite)?

Cross-platform settings and packages sync

Matteo Capobianco 7 years ago • updated by Vladimir Starkov 5 years ago 5
I'm currently using Dropbox to sync "Packages" and "Pristine Packages" between Mac OS X and Ubuntu via symlinks, and it seems to be working like a charm.
Of course I'm not syncing the session because it would make no sense.

open/save files from a ssh connection

It would be handly to open & save file from/to a remote folder, using a ssh connection... i.e. doing remote editing.

Syntax highlighting of heredoc in Ruby

Benjamin Quorning 6 years ago • updated by Nieralyte 5 years ago 7
The syntax highlighting of heredocs in Ruby are missing (at least) three things:

* Interpolation is not highlighted:

* Heredoc starting without a dash is not recognized:
Not highlighted

* Heredocs as a method parameter mess up the closing parenthesis:
I don't want to write the regex for this one…

There is some documentation on heredocs here: http://blog.jayfields.com/2006/12/ruby-multiline-strings-here-doc-or.html

My entire professional career I've been looking for two things. A webhost with a great panel and a truly great editor.

Jonathan Yarbor 7 years ago 0
You've completed one part of that by making sublime. I've fallen bracket over function for Sublime 2, broke up with my previous editor, and never looked back. I paid in like 1 week of using the trial. The ability to run on my Mac Mini, Linux Laptop, and my PC computer all the same really makes this a beautiful addition. I'll gladly support this program. Thank you for making awesome happen.

ps: you did the editor, and with that I am making the hosting panel

Auto Complete searches entire project

Zachary Nawar 7 years ago • updated by Joel Thornton 6 years ago 3
Currently auto complete only searches the currently opened file for similar functions. The ability to make it search your entire project would be nice, and have the results be like:
[trying to autocomplete: "Commit"]

Which will also show the location of the function or the variable you are looking to autocomplete.

Image Source Completion

Lukas B Dot 7 years ago • updated by Liam Cain 7 years ago 5

A while ago I asked this question on StackOverflow:


Code Completion that would access the filesystem would be very helpful, not alone for Images, but also for css/js files and so on...

Now I would like to ask this here. Is there anything planned towards this, are there existing plugins that are doing something like this? 


Multiple rows of tabs

chaiguy 7 years ago • updated 6 years ago 2
There needs to be some way of handling many open tabs, such as wrapping them to another line.

use separate colors for the background, gutter, and folder tree

Chris Hough 6 years ago • updated by Nando Vieira 4 years ago 10
Build in the capability to set the backgrounds of gutters, the folder tree, and backgrounds seperately.  A good discussion on the soda project. https://github.com/buymeasoda/soda-theme/issues/49

Add 'Close all files' shortcut / command

Hay Kranen 7 years ago • updated by Joel Thornton 7 years ago 5
It would be very handy to have a way to close all open tabs with one command. Maybe Cmd/Ctrl-Shift-W instead of Cmd/Ctrl-W?

Limit number of tabs shown based on available space, show other tabs in a pulldown menu

John Pansewicz 6 years ago • updated by Leo Gallucci 5 years ago 1

Tabs become pretty much unusable once there are too many open. You can't read the text, and the close box goes away. And if the close box is still there, I find myself clicking it by accident because the tab is too small.

I'm used to using Eclipse, and I like how they limit the number of tabs shown based on how much space is available. This way, you can always read the beginning of the file name, and the close box is always visible. When there are more tabs that can be show, a little menu shows up on the right. The menu shows the "shown" tabs in bold", and the ones that can't be shown are normal. You can then show a tab by selecting it from the list, and another visible one will take its place.


Why isn't everything available in the command pallete?

Wayne Ashley Berry 6 years ago • updated by Dave G 6 years ago 1
There are quite a few commands that aren't available in the command pallete, and I generally find it much easier searching for commands than either going through menus or remembering shortcut keys...

Here are a few I can't find
- Bookmarking
- Expanding Selections
- Toggle Comments
- Switch Project

Is there any reason they aren't in the command palette?
