Clojure auto-indentation is almost never correct

Anthony Grimes 9 years ago updated 8 years ago 2
There are a number of cases where auto-indent isn't correct in Clojure. Here are some examples:


Function arguments are supposed to be lined up. The vector should be lined up with the + sign, like this:

Another example is this:

when it should be:

This is just totally broken.  Notice how in the st2 formatted example, it's like the keywords are indented against the -> instead of the mongo/fetch function. It's pretty crazy. I'm sure there are more quirks but this is just what I ran into playing for a few minutes.

P.S. I apologize for pasting code elsewhere. I couldn't figure out how to format it nicely in uservoice.

Allow for transparency level of background color at colorscheme level

Nick Silverman 4 years ago updated by amorris 3 years ago 3

I would love to be able to set a transparency level in my color scheme for the background color so the desktop behind can be slightly visible. Also have a level of blur for the background behind.


Paste (HTML) formatted content from clipboard

Werchter 10 years ago updated by EHLOVader 10 years ago 1
An option to paste formatted text from clipboard. For example, the Visual Studio productivity power tools copies code in both plain text and HTML format (syntax colored) to the clipboard
In SublimeText (and I think almost in every text editor), you can only paste the plain text version. However, I would love to be able to paste the HTML formatted text (text including the HTML tags).
So essentially as MS-Word like "Paste special" functionality.

task-focused interface (like eclipse mylyn)

Robert Kasanicky 9 years ago updated by Eugene Bezludny 5 years ago 1
As an eclipse user I really miss the Mylyn functionality (quick demo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEyjpDrHCjc)

In my mind a basic task-focused interface would cover:
1. task creation/import - I can define local tasks and there's an API for writing connectors that retrieve tasks from remote issue trackers
2. every task carries it's own persistent context (primarily which files are open) and when I activate a task the context is restored

Ability to disable/hide scroll bar(s)

Jan Bader 10 years ago updated by Jon Skinner 8 years ago 4
Please add the ability to hide the scroll bar(s). 

I barely use them, since it slows me down to use the mouse and if I use the mouse, i usually use the mousewheel.

Also, the vertical scrollbar is redundant with the minimap.
Jon Skinner 10 years ago

This can be done by setting the overlay_scroll_bars global setting to "enabled".

This was added in 2091


Function parameter auto-complete

Caleb Morris 9 years ago updated by Bruno Lemos 8 years ago 1
When auto completing a function pop up a small off-set message of the parameter inputs.
ex: foo( int a, real b ); // declared above
when foo auto-completed "foo(" is put and a message shows "foo( int, int )"

Set font size per pane

Allow the user to persistently change the font size independently for each pane in the UI. For example, the user should be able to use a smaller font size for the console pane than their main text buffer.

Better handling of huge files

n00ge 10 years ago updated by Jon Skinner 8 years ago 9
When handling large sql files (25k lines and up) it takes a while (12 seconds+) to open the file and manipulate. Editing is also quite slow.

I'm not expecting miracles, but is there anything that can be done here? Maybe look at the file size and don't apply syntax highlighting initially for x mb size files and up?
Jon Skinner 10 years ago

This was fixed in 2091.

The SQL grammar file had a degenerate regex that could cause significant slowdowns.


Paredit for Clojure

ST's Clojure support falls short of paredit. Please consider supporting paredit for Clojure.


Bundle python ssl module

Will Bond 10 years ago updated by Julien Bouquillon 8 years ago 10
It would be nice to be able to pull data from web servers that use SSL certs. From what I can tell, urllib2 needs the python ssl module to be able to download from https:// urls.

Sort numbered files/folders in the sidebar correctly

Jeff Byrnes 9 years ago updated by Daniel Baumann 8 years ago 28
Currently, a series of files or folders which are numbered are not sorted correctly in the sidebar if they enter the hundreds. For example:


While I know this is often how *nix systems sort, I think many would agree that the intent of a series of numbered folders would be to sort correctly, as if they were integers.

Allow hiding of the title bar

Andrew Rabon 9 years ago updated by Jae Page 5 years ago 3
Basically make it more like Chrome and integrate the tabs and the title bar into one, to preserve pixels.

Add Sublime Text 2 to the Ubuntu repositories

Octavian Damiean 9 years ago updated by dp wiz 8 years ago 5
It would be nice if you could add Sublime Text 2 to the Ubuntu package repositories so everyone can just install it using apt-get or the Ubuntu Software Center.

Duplicate file from folder context menu

Kelly Banman 10 years ago updated by Bruce Pieterse 9 years ago 1
I'd like to be able to right-click on a file in the project sidebar and duplicate the file.

And instead of just making a new file called "somefile_copy.php", show the rename panel, allowing the user to specify the new filename straight away.

show bookmark in minimap

It would be nice if bookmarks were shown in the minimap or on the editor pane scroll bar.

"Find in selection" shouldn't be the default

Rob Speer 9 years ago updated by Charlie 4 years ago 13
Finding text inside my selection is never what I want to do, and yet it happens by default if anything is selected.

This makes me think that text doesn't exist in my code, when it actually does.

It's particularly bad because if I've just searched for something else, the result is *selected* and I have to clear the selection before I can proceed!

Open file by clicking link

Luís Marques 9 years ago updated by Michał Jendrzejewski 7 years ago 5
In netbeans you have the function: 
Press Ctrl and click a link a file, like this "include_once "function/global.php";".
When "function/global.php" is clicked, the file opens in a new tab.

That would be a great feature. :)
