Sublime Merge: Open in Editor doesn't work if file is not currently checked out


It looks to me like “Open in Editor” is doing something like directly opening the selected file on disk, rather than pulling the contents out from Git history, because when I click “Open in Editor” for files which have since been deleted, nothing happens.

I have confirmed that when I click Open in Editor for other files that are currently on disk, the Terminal editor opens the file.

I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 with Sublime Merge Build 1119.



That’s a known issue.

Would also appriciate the possibility to open a readonly copy of the selected file revision.
