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


vertical ruler color setting

jan otte 7 років тому • оновлено Jerome Indefenzo 1 рік тому 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.


please add xsd validation for xml files and autocomplete

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.

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

Show tab trigger for snippets

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:


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

imperfect 6 років тому • оновлено Luis Raúl Medina 2 роки тому 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

Fully functional SVN/Git

Jarod Taylor 7 років тому • оновлено Petros Diveris 6 років тому 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.


Apple Touch Bar

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


Open symbol list in a pane

Nick Melnick 8 років тому • оновлено robertcollier4 5 років тому 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.

Highlight found text in minimap

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.

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

Metin Amiroff 8 років тому • оновлено Jon Skinner 7 років тому 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.

Invisible tabs row, icons on the gutter

Aleksandr Gornostal 6 років тому • оновлено Matthew Wild 6 років тому 4

When plugin uses add_regions API, sometimes tabs row or icons on the gutter (or both) disappear.

This bug was detected among the majority of Sublime versions and on all platforms.

Unfortunately it appears randomly. I can't tell how to reproduce it except using plugins that draw icons on the gutter (like Modific).


hex edit mode

Add a means of editing/viewing binary and text files in hexadecimal.

Off hand, that looks to be the only feature missing from everything I regularly use in UltraEdit.

disable animation in side bar

matrushka 8 років тому • оновлено Jon Skinner 7 років тому 1
maybe a global preference to disable animations on side bar?

The tree_animation_enabled global setting was added in 2139 to control this

Copy/Move files in a sidebar

V B 6 років тому • оновлено Ian Maddox 2 роки тому 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.

Autoconvert spaces/tabs to default setting on file load

alexrussell 7 років тому • оновлено myname iswithheld 2 роки тому 7
I have a load of files that are throwbacks from the days of double-space indentation. I now use tabs (tab width 2).

I've set my default indentation type to tabs and set it not to autodetect indentation:
    "auto_indent": true,
    "detect_indentation": false,
    "tab_size": 2,
    "translate_tabs_to_spaces": false

It'd be great if, upon loading a file with space-based indentation, it'd detect it and convert to tabs for me. As it stands, I'm having to notice the spaces and use "Convert indentation to tabs" which is a great feature, but it'd be great to have it automatic.

Maybe I have my settings wrong. I thought detect_indentation might be key here, but it appears to simply detect the file's indentation method and override the default with that (which is actually what I would expect, so I'm not complaining there).

Hopefully that makes sense.
