find.use_selected_text in ST2

adzenith 7 years ago • updated 7 years ago 1
In Sublime Text 1, there was an option find.useSelectedText that you could set to false to prevent selected text from automatically being copied into the find box. Could this option be added into ST2?

leaving full screen crashes

Eugene Wolfson 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 2
In Build 2128, on OS X, going in to Full Screen or Distraction Free mode and then exiting it causes Sublime Text 2 to crash.

If I reopen it, I do not lose my open tabs.

Jump to parent class

would be great to have a shortcut for jumping to a parent class of the current buffer. In langs that don't have implementation/header file types it would be a great help

File dirty marker doesn't update on save when buffer has multiple views

Daniel Azuma 7 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 6 years ago 2
If you open a buffer in multiple tabs (using, for example, Goto Anything), make some changes, and save the buffer, the "file dirty" marker asterisk disappears only on the tab that was active when you saved. The other tab retains the asterisk.

Build 2032 on Mac OS X.

* Choose vertical two pane layout.
* Open a file in group 1.
* Switch to group 2. Open the same file there using Goto Anything. The same buffer now appears in two tabs, one in each group.
* Make some changes to the buffer. A "file dirty" marker asterisk appears in both tabs.
* Save the buffer. The asterisk disappears in the tab that was active when the save command was issued, but it remains in the other tab.

Macros across panes

Games Faction 7 years ago 0
There are lots of use-cases for macros operating across multiple panes. In other words, please have an option for the macro'state to be global, not one per pane. I quite often need to create one file from the sources of several others and a macro operating across several panes is a very convenient way of doing it

Typing "e" does not advance to next word in command mode

Travis Swicegood 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
There's an issue with the "e" key for moving the cursor in command mode.  It's supposed to move to the next word.  It does work if you switch to visual mode instead of command mode.

This appears to be a new bug, I've just noticed it after upgrading to build 2158.

Highlight multiple cursor(s) out-of-view

Andreas Schneider 5 years ago 0

When you have multiple cursors/selections which are not in the current view (i.e. you scrolled away from them) it might easily happen that you type away without noticing, that you actually modify multiple places at once. It would be nice to have a clear warning when an additional cursor is not currently visible. For example by showing one or two of these cursors (in their respective scope; i.e. the line they are in) at the top or bottom (depending on where they are in relation to your current view) of the editing window.


Real-time debuging

Sublime text should be able to spot errors in real-time like Java does and offer a few solutions and why it is an error for all major languages.


Create an option to make bottom dialogs span code area width only (and not span project view)

Sergey Morkovkin 6 years ago 0
I'm talking about find/replace dialog, console, file/folder rename dialog. Currently it spans the entire width of the editor. It would be nice to have an option an make it span code editor width only. This results:
- Easier to switch/focus attention (especially for people with bad eyesight).
- More height for the project view.

"File open" dialog doesn't show all files

Hay Kranen 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
It seems the file open dialog doesn't always show all files in a folder. Sometimes you need to move back and forward before seeing all files. Sometimes the only way to prevent this is by restarting Sublime.

I'm using the latest build (2139) on Mac OS X Lion.

Open opening "Find", use currently selected text as "Find what"

uid 6 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 5 years ago 2
If any text is currently selected in the focused document, opening "Find" should use it (as "Find what"). It saves an extra copy and paste.

I'd prefer to click a "Reset" button in the "Find dialog" in cases where the text for which i'm looking isn't highlighted, than focus the document, copy, paste to "Find What" before I can search
Jon Skinner 6 years ago
The find_selected_text file setting is used for this. It defaults to false on OS X to adhere to platform conventions.

Improved Locked Document Editing

Foster Brereton 5 years ago 0

Problems arise from the following set of steps:

  1. Open a locked document
  2. Make edits to the document
  3. Save -> Get Error about document being locked

The issue is getting the file unlocked painlessly so the user can save the edits made up to this point. I realize there are plugins that exist to auto-checkout files in source control, but this is an orthogonal issue. For example, if the checkout/unlock operation fails, the user is stranded with edits that cannot be saved.

Possible resolutions include:

  • Let the user drag the document icon (in OSX) in the window bar to another application to copy the file path. As of step 2 above it is greyed out and cannot be dragged without undoing the edits. 
  • Prevent the user from making edits in step 2 until the file has been unlocked. This is how other editors like BBEdit and Xcode behave. This would also be the point at which version control plugins would want to attempt to check out the file.
  • The ability to overwrite the locked file during step 3. Some kind of dialog to either cancel the edit or unlock the document. This would be a fallback option in the event a plugin failed to checkout/unlock the document, so the user could still save the edits (they would, of course, be on the hook for checking out the file manually.)
  • The ability to get the full path of the frontmost document quickly copied to the clipboard so it can be pasted in another application to checkout/unlock the locked file, making step 3 succeed.
