"Find in selection" shouldn't be the default

Rob Speer 12 years ago updated by Charlie 7 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!

prolog syntax coloration

add prolog syntax coloration,
this feature would be awesome, just like the rest of the editor! =)

Open file by clicking link

Luís Marques 12 years ago updated by Michał Jendrzejewski 10 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. :)

Ability to configure the transparency of whitespace characters like Eclipse.

arahlf 13 years ago updated by Mathew Polzin 11 years ago 3
I usually develop with whitespace characters always enabled, but the default look of them in Sublime Text is rather distracting -- it would be nice to make them more transparent like Eclipse Indigo now offers.

It would be awesome if you could drag/drop to reorder files and folders in the sidebar! 


An ARM port so that sublime text will be able to be used on platforms such as Beaglebone and the new Raspberry Pi.

m2432432 12 years ago updated by Fredrik Ehnbom 12 years ago 1
Sublime Text looks like the perfect editor for something like the Raspberry Pi. I use it considerably on my desktop and laptop, and it would be great to be able to use it on my other platforms as well.

Relative line numbers

Chetan Surpur 12 years ago updated by Alexander Ivanov 7 years ago 6

The option to switch to relative line numbers (http://dlo.me/vim-with-relative-line-numbers/) would be great, especially with the new Vintage mode.

I wouldn't even mind a plugin to do this, but I'm not sure how to go about implementing it. Any hints?



Dragging last file from a window should close window

Falcon NL 13 years ago updated by Nick 12 years ago 2
Currently, dragging the last file file from a window to a different or new window leaves behind an empty window, which in the vast majority of cases you'll want to close. I suggest closing the window automatically once the last file has been removed.

Intelligent case-sensitivity for searches

Markus Peter 12 years ago updated by Brian Gallagher 12 years ago 4
A semi-intelligent case-sensitivity mode for searches as option, like in Emacs, where, if I type the word to search in all-lowercase, it will search case-insensitively and as soon as I type something containing uppercase, it will search case-sensitively exactly for what I typed.


Preview for Images

Philipp Schaffrath 12 years ago updated by Donna Klinton 10 years ago 4
I've got many Situations where i want to insert Images to my Project, when i select an Image i get the preview of the includet data as Text. It would be nice, if you provide the functionality to get a preview of images. Maybe you use the file extention as trigger, or you read the file header to check if a different preview is needed.

This feature could be used for several other files like .pdf, .mp3 (audio files in general), .mp4 (video files in general) or even .ttf (font files in general).

This functionality would be pure epicness!

Code folding of one line functions

L0u1s 12 years ago updated by Adrian Forte 7 years ago 5
You are now able to fold functions when there's more then 1 line of code.
It would be nice to also fold on-lined functions

Replace in all open files

Vadim Peretokin 13 years ago updated by Jon Skinner 11 years ago 4
It's be great if the replace option could also work in all currently open files, in addition to per-file as it is right now.

ODB Editor Suite (QuickCursor) support on OS X

Kevin Yank 13 years ago updated by aristidesfl 12 years ago 9
QuickCursor is an application from Hog Bay Software that lets you pull the text out of any text field (in any application that uses native Cocoa text fields) and edit it in your editor of choice. Currently it supports BBEdit, Espresso, MacVim, Smultron, SubEthaEdit, TextMate, TextWrangler, and WriteRoom.

Please add support for the ODB Editor Suite that is required so that QuickCursor can support Sublime Text 2 as well!

Open Containing Folder

When right-clicking on a file tab, it would be useful to have "Open Containing Folder" like in Visual Studio

Virtual Space / Freehanded editing

bradbenvenuti 12 years ago updated by Joel Thornton 12 years ago 1
Visual studio calls it virtual space and Textmate calls it freehanded editing. I won't be able to switch to sublime text until this feature is available. It allows you to make multi-line edits past the end of a line.

Function search across entire project

Zachary Nawar 13 years ago updated by Thamaraiselvam 8 years ago 4
Im aware you can press CTRL+R and it opens a small window where you can type a function name or parts of a function name and it will take you to that function. However it seems to be limited only to the one file you have open. Having it work across every file of that format across the entire project/open folders would be very nice.

Add enviroment vars ($file, $file_name, $selection, $project) to key bindings

Greg Williams 13 years ago updated 13 years ago 2
Adding enviroment vars ($file, $file_name, $selection, $project) to key bindings would accomplish the needs of many 'plugins' in a simple bindings file

Auto documentation based on setting, command and key binding reflection/introspection

David K. Hess 12 years ago updated by glyph 12 years ago 4
If you add the ability to introspect all of the built-in commands, loaded commands, settings and key bindings, then we could write a plugin that would go through all of that and generate an HTML documentation page that could be opened in an external web browser.

Good and accurate documentation for not a lot of work.
