vertical ruler color setting

jan otte fa 10 anys updated by Jerome Indefenzo fa 4 anys 1

 Thanks very much for implementing the 'gutterForeground' setting in build 2020. Allowing setting the colour of line numbers to other than a modified version of the 'foreground' setting is awesome.

Would it be possible to do the same for the vertical ruler colour setting?

In some uses having a vertical rule establishing the tab settings is very useful and for that case I would like to set a colour a shade or two away from the background so the readability of the text is maintained.

In some uses the ruler being brightly highlighted would be ideal.

If I was able to set the ruler colour then these different cases could be handled better than the current fixed setting allows.

Thanks for any time considering this and especially for any time implementing it if you choose to do so.


Switch to GTK3 for smooth scrolling

Using GTK3 would enable offering smooth scrolling with touchpad for Linux users, similar to Gedit on Gnome.


Syntax highlighter should support unquoted attribute values in HTML

Mathias Bynens fa 9 anys 0

As soon as an unquoted attribute value is encountered in the HTML, the syntax highlighter stops working correctly.

Here’s an example HTML document that you can use to reproduce this issue: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=KeJLnCnK See e.g. on line 6. If you wrap the attribute value in quotes, the syntax highlighter starts working again.

FWIW, this article might have some useful information when you’re fixing the unquoted attribute values parsing: http://mathiasbynens.be/notes/unquoted-attribute-values It lists all the characters that can be used to break out of unquoted attribute values.

Prompt if need elevated permission to save on Windows (and Linux if that also doesn't work)

imperfect fa 8 anys updated by Luis Raúl Medina fa 5 anys 16

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


please add xsd validation for xml files and autocomplete

ceeblet fa 7 anys 0
if an xml file has an xsd designation that is accessible (i.e. in same directory as the xml file) it would be wonderful to have the ability to validate against that xsd and also to have autocomplete as suggested by the xsd.

FTP synchronize projects like dreamweaver

Allow save and upload files directly in the server. This allow also make fast web projects

Show tab trigger for snippets

Oktay Acikalin fa 10 anys updated by Jon Skinner fa 9 anys 1
One cannot see which tab triggers have been defined when browsing the snippets menu. It would be nice to see them there, too.

In 2165, the snippets menu has been replaced with the Command Palette, which does show the tab trigger

Confirming which git branch I'm in at a glance would be spectacular. Mock-up here:


Open symbol list in a pane

Nick Melnick fa 10 anys updated by robertcollier4 fa 8 anys 5
Being able to open another pane, similar to the file browsing pane, with the list of symbols in the current file would be handy. The Go to anything feature is handy in files you know well, but having the list for new code makes life easier.

Support for the new MacBook Pro touchbar as soon as possible would be heavily beneficial to speed up my programming.


api to add stuff to sidebar

Dmitry Afanasyev fa 9 anys updated by Mauricio Lopez T. fa 9 anys 2
It would be nice to have API that can add stuff to sidebar. 
For example, I want to make a plugin that display Ruby on Rails projects not by its directory structure but in logical one, i.e. templates under controllers, etc
I thing it would be useful for many kinds of plugins such as VCS systems, FTP plugins and more

Fully functional SVN/Git

Jarod Taylor fa 10 anys updated by Petros Diveris fa 9 anys 10

I've done some searching and have come up with nothing other than the current plugin that is lacking the rest of the SVN functionality. (https://github.com/burriko/sublime-subversion)

Would also love to see Git integrated into Sublime Text 2. Many of my projects use SVN and many use Git. I love that Textmate gives me the abilty to use both within the editor. 

This is and code folding are 2 things lacking from Sublime, but other wise I am LOVING it. Great job.


Highlight found text in minimap

Ian Henry fa 10 anys updated by stijn fa 9 anys 4
Kind of like how Chrome's find on page feature shows you where to scroll, it'd be nice to have a yellow line or something appear on the minimap for matches.

Project based snippets

n00ge fa 10 anys updated by Jason Maskell fa 1 any 2
A lot of times I have reusable code that relates only to a specific project and would love to create snippets for it but don't want to muddy up the snippet pool for all projects. It would be useful to have a way to create project based snippets.

Copy/Move files in a sidebar

V B fa 9 anys updated by Ian Maddox fa 5 anys 5
Sidebar file actions are limited to Delete/Rename for some reason. One of the most common tasks when working with projects is rearranging files or folders inside your project directory. Any time I need to quickly move files between folders, I can do it via fast sidebar drag-and-drop in pretty much ANY IDE or programmer editor (like Textmate). Except for ST2, for all its other niceties. Every time I need to copy or move a file I have to take detour into Finder which is VERY frustrating.

This is pretty much THE only missing feature preventing me from buying the product. I'd guess this is a showstopper not only for me but for many other people considering lack of this essential feature as a sign of product immaturity, to put it simply.

Minimap Width

I understand that it would be a lot of code to make the minimap width dynamic (set in preferences or draggable) but what about 2 FIXED settings, narrow and wide?  For my old eyes, if the minimap were just 1/2" wider on my screen (50 pixels?) it would be even more useful for me.

implement underline as part of fontStyle in .tmTheme

In the user-defined .tmTheme files, fontStyle seems to only accept bold and italic at the moment. Adding support for underline would be greatly appreciated.


Ctrl + Shift + D should duplicate not only current line, but current selection if available

Metin Amiroff fa 10 anys updated by Jon Skinner fa 10 anys 9
Currently the only way to duplicate a block of code is to go through a tedious process of select->copy->go down->unindent if needed->paste.

ST1 had a plugin (poweredit) that made Ctrl+Sift+D duplicate currently selected text if it's available. If not, it would duplicate current line. This is super useful and productive feature and I think must come by default with ST2.
