First of all, I really like sublime text. I just bought a licence since I use it all the time.
The one thing I miss from using the minimap scroll bar in vs is full map mode. I find it very useful for navigating through large code files since you can see the shape of the entire file at once. Then you simply click where you want to go rather than scrolling along the scroll bar.
The other feature is previews of the code under the mouse pointer in the minimap.
My real questions are:
Is it possible to develop a minimap replacement as a plugin? In which case I would develop my own.
Or is there a formal feature request process?
