Hi. Sublime text editor plugins don't work in Linux. For example i use Zen Coding plugin (, but this doesn't work. Please fix this bug

That's a plugin for Sublime Text 1. Sublime Text 2 uses a different plugin system.

How can I create a selection?

Oktay Acikalin 7 years ago • updated 7 years ago 2
I've written a plugin which replaces the selected regions with some other content. Now I would like to reselect the results to show the user what has been replaced. How can I do this?

navigation - sidebar text preview

walter lynsdale 6 years ago 0

see Mac email client.

how about an option to show 1 or 2 lines of text from the current location in each open file in the sidebar

Only enable when the sidebar is expanded beyond a certain size.

This preview text would be in a small, faint font so as not to distract from the filename itself


With this multiple views into file this could do a similar job to bookmarks, or could almost be like a textual "Expose"


Show date and time in status bar when in fullscreen mode

Oktay Acikalin 7 years ago • updated by aristidesfl 6 years ago 8
When working in fullscreen mode I sometimes want to know the current time and day (number) without going elsewhere. Showing something like "13:37, 14" or "1:37 pm, 14" sitting at the right of the status bar would be enough.
What do you think? Nonsense? Overkill? Useful?

Status bar draggable in OSX

I'd like the option to drag the status bar in OSX to move the main Sublime window around, similar to Finder / Safari.

Display keyboard shortcut on each tab

Peter Lyons 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
Optionally display the keyboard shortcut and/or tab index for each tab. ⌘1 ⌘2 ⌘3, etc. iTerm2 has this. It's hard to visually guess if a tab is number 6 or 7.

Copy (super+c) should copy line if nothing is selected

aristidesfl 7 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 5 years ago 5

The first time I've seen this improvement was in IntelliJ IDE.

If nothing is selected, make the Copy command (super+c) copy the entire line.

The same goes for the Cut command (super+x).

It has always done this in Sublime Text

It would be cool if we could navigate to View > Todo List

and that would show us a summary of all lines of code marked with a TODO comment

Combine 32-bit and 64-bit versions into one package for Linux

Perhaps combine the 32 bit and 64 bit versions into one package - I run it from my Dropbox on multiple machines.
