Option to change which side of the screen the file browser is on.

Brennon Loveless 6 years ago 0
Ability to select which side of the screen the file browser is loaded on either the left or the right. I prefer mine on the right. I assume this would coincide with the ability to change the side of the window that the minimap is on.

Autocomplete with TAB does not work when inside a snippet

Κώστας Καραχάλιος 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 2
When initiating a snippet (eg def<tab> in a Ruby file), the autocompletion with the tab key does work properly (instead, it triggers inside the snippet).

moving folded blocks

Khalis Totorkulov 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
If I try Ctrl+Up or Down on a line to which code block was folded it does something strange.
Expected behavior would be to move that line Up or Down, while it is still folded.

Differentiate HTML Tag

Alexander Elisenko 6 years ago 0

It would be great if the syntax highlighting for HTML tags could differentiate between tags. For example have all the HTML tags associated with forms in a different color then the rest of the tags for easy code browsing.


It would be great to have a path bar like OSX finder for fullscreen mode

Auto copy/paste changes in default preferences to user preferences

Jethro Flanagan 5 years ago 0

Any changes in the default preferences don't actually occur in that file, but are automatically pasted through to the user preferences. This saves on copy/paste time, helps new users deal with how the preference system works, and can automate copying comments through, too.

e.g. editing 

"font_size": 10, to "font_size": 12, in the defaults will actually add that change to user preferences, while leaving the default as it was. 

It would be helpful to have a small tooltip or something similar notifying the user of this.


Bottom Bar: show more file Infos/modes, don't let messages displace those..

jeandeluxe 6 years ago 0
Currently (2181@OSX) ST2 has some weaknesses in what and how it shows infos in the bottom bar:

  1. Generally rather few infos of what might be interesting at a glance or direct access..
  2. Ad hoc messages displace the static infos ..

Coming from jEdit i'm used to some more usefull infos or mode toggles - which i find mostly valuable - plus the concise way jEdit presents those.. see this comparison screenshot ST2 vs. jEdit .. it shows:

  • Line, (ST2)
  • Column (ST2)
  • (Offset, (usefull)
  • Total) (usefull)
  • |Syntax (ST2)
  • |EditMode (no equivalent-> maybe use some ST2 info or mode )
  • |Encoding (ST2)
  • |WordWrap (very usefull, jEdit has 3 modes: normal,hard,soft)
  • |SelectionMode (no equivalent-> maybe use some ST2 info or mode ) 
  • |RectangularSelection (no equivalent-> maybe use some ST2 info or mode) 
  • |InsertMode (no equivalent-> maybe use some ST2 info or mode ) 
  • |LineSeparator|(usefull)
  • JavaHeap (irrelevant)

As u can see, jEdit stuffs a lot of usefull infos/modes in little space (has tooltips if in doubt) ..

Per TAB character word wrap.

Similar to Word/Excel.
