Indentation level setting (different from tab size)

David Capello 12 years ago updated by User______ 7 years ago 10
Add some options to specify the indentation level (which is different from tab_size):
  • indentation_size/indent_level (integer): number of spaces to use to indent code, which is not the same as "tab_size"
  • compress_spaces_with_tabs_on_indentation (boolean): to specify that spaces should be converted to tabs when you reach a certain level of indentation (e.g. 8 spaces compressed to 1 tab if tab_size=8)

Sidebar icons and fitt's law

Richard Hurt 13 years ago updated by Jamie Webb 13 years ago 2
Opening a folder in the sidebar is fairly tedious and requires you to click in just the right place. Making the triangles bigger or allowing the filename to be a target would help quite a bit. Keyboard commands to open/close folders would be handy as well.

Tidy code formatting

Daniel Blanchard 12 years ago updated by Brian Grinter 12 years ago 3
One thing that I really miss from TextMate (and a lot of other editors) is the ability to tidy up code so that it all corresponds to a standard format.

For example, I currently have some really terribly formatted HTML I'd like to be able to have automatically indented and broken up into lines like HTMLTidy, and it'd be nice if it was possible to do that from inside ST2.

Update the python embedded interpreter to 2.7

Norman Casagrande 12 years ago updated 12 years ago 0
SublimeText should upgrade the python embedded interpreter to 2.7.

Since popular plugins such as SublimeLinter relies on the embedded interpreter, they cannot handle syntax that has been introduced in 2.7 such as set comprehensions. 

See https://github.com/Kronuz/SublimeLinter/issues/13 for instance.

Improve Open Recent on OS X

aristidesfl 12 years ago updated by Reinout Roels 11 years ago 15
Open Recent doesn't work as expected and doesn't integrate well with the system.


Image 19





Somethings don't work as expected, others are broken and it doesn't look the same. Here is a screenshot from TextMate:


Image 20



Some of the issues I find, besides the looks, are:

- Every file appears in the list. Even files opened thru the sidebar or go to file palete. This is not desirable. Only opened folders and files which don't belong to any of the folders in the sidebar should be in that list.

- The list isn't accessible by other applications. People using Quicksilver or Launchbar can't open directly recent files/folders 


Without knowing anything from Sublime Text 2 implementation, I risk to say, using the default OS X API's to provide this functionality would probably fix these issues.

Autohide Sidebar

Austin Condiff 12 years ago 0
You can currently Hide or Show the sidebar, but it would be nice to set it to autohide so that when you mouse over the left side, the sidebar will slide in. Then when you mouse off of it, it will slide back so it is hidden again.

Many plugins depend on the quick panel to work. The availabitliy of the quick panel soon would help with the porting efforts.

Auto close tags after you type >

Thodoris Tsiridis 13 years ago updated by Drew Betts 11 years ago 12
It would be great to auto close tags after you type the > of the opening tag. So when you type <span> immediately it closes the tag, and the cursor stays inside the tag.

Add bookmarks support

Metin Amiroff 13 years ago updated by Cees Timmerman 8 years ago 8
Ability to add bookmarks to lines would make it easy and fast to get to predefined places within code.

Keyboard shortcuts would be F2 for adding a bookmark, and various combinations with Shift and Ctrl for walking between them.

Sort files in sidebar by modification time

Clayton Hynfield 12 years ago updated by Andrew Yurisich 11 years ago 4
Being able to sort files in the sidebar by modification time would make it super-easy to find and edit recently and frequently modified files, without ever having to leave Sublime Text.  Would be especially handy for folders with lots of files.

upon selecting a word, highlight all occurrences

Enmanuel Rivera 13 years ago updated by Azhar eds 7 years ago 41
upon selecting a word, highlight all occurrences of the same word in the current file. Many editors / IDEs already do this. It's a feature I have grown accoustomed, and I find it very difficult to work without.
