I just found out about Sublime and it looks amazing. The fact that is works on both windows and OSX is a huge plus for me. So much, I will give up TexShop on the Mac if I can get the functionality below. I spend hundreds of hours each year making documents in the following format.
I use the LaTeX outlines package extensively. It basically allows one to use \1 \2 \3 \4 at the beginning of a line to indicate the levels of outline.
When I type up my content I never use soft returns so each line is continuous beginning with \1 .. \4.
\1 Some content.
\1 More content.
\2 Indented content but not really indented
\3 blah blah
I would like to develop a way to "promote" or "demote" either the current line or a selection of lines. ie for promoting I would add 1 to \1 to make it \2, etc..
So demoting the example above:
\2 Some content.
\2 More content.
\3 Indented content but not really indented
\4 blah blah
Does anyone have any hints at where to begin to code this functionality? I started to look at the default package, but I am not having much luck. I am brand new to python.
Ideally I would like to invoke command when I am anywhere on the line for a single line. For a group of lines, I would like to be able to begin highlighting anywhere on a line and end anywhere as well and do this to the line.
Any helps or hints would be appreciated.
