Sorry if this is a dupe, but I’ve searched around for a bit and I haven’t found if/how I can get Sublime Text in OSX to automatically search for the selected text when doing CMD-F or SHIFT-CMD-F. My text editor muscle memory comes from Windows, and it’s non-trivial for me to do CMD-E every time I want to search for selected text. What’s worse is that “close tab” is just a key away, at CMD-W. Is there a canonical way to combine the slurp-to-find-buffer and find-text commands into a single key binding?
Automatically slurp selected text when finding
You can put
"find_selected_text": true in your user preferences file to get that behavior on OS X too.
Thanks. You’ve single-handedly eliminated the primary dealbreaker I had with Sublime Text.
