[Solved] How to show if Caps Lock is on?


Is there a way have each Sublime Text window display some indicator when Caps Lock is enabled? For example, on the bottom bar where the tab size and file type is displayed?



That’s not possible by default as there’s no setting, and you can’t bind a key to capslock to know when it’s changing.

In theory it would be possible to create a plugin that does that, if there was a Python library that was capable of reading the keyboard at a low enough level to be able to detect the state, though that would be somewhat more complicated than most plugins and would be platform specific.
