Here are some thoughts after using "Sublime Text X 20110110" almost exclusively since the release (windows portable version):
Nice to have:
- Access to the clipboard from plugins (for me this is probably the only reason I'm still using the old Sublime Text)
- Quickpanel access for the most recent projects
- Quickpanel access for the most recent files
- Shortcut to re-open the last closed file
- This would be less important if we have quickpanel access to the most recent files
- A command to clear the contents of the console
- Option to use tabs for the open files in addition to the sidebar (or as a replacement)
- Theming of the sidebar
- Option to change which side of the screen the minimap is on (already suggested by others)
- When using "Select file..(ctrl+p)", a given file can show up multiple times in the results (sometimes with the full path, sometimes with a relative path and sometimes with a mix)
- Re-compile user plugins without having to restart
- Feedback in the title or status bar that shows what the active project is
- As mentioned by others, I agree that the project specification and the project state should be stored separately (maybe sublime-project and sublime-workspace?). As it is now, it will be difficult to edit the project files (because there is so much state information stored there) and sharing projects doesn't make much sense. The simplicity of the old project files was great but I really like the features of the new projects. Can't we have the best of both worlds?
- sublime-project: build_system, folders, save_all_on_build, plus any include/exclude instructions
- sublime-workspace: buffers, file_history, find_in_files, find_state, groups, layout, select_file, show_minimap, side_bar_visible, side_bar_width, status_bar_visible
- When word wrap is turned off, it is hard to tell if there is more text at the end of a line (because there is no visible separation between the view and the the minimap). This is especially prominent with a "short" file where the minimap next to a long line is blank.
Functionality that I miss (but is hopefully on the way):
- Unique Lines (permuteLines unique)
- The "Change Case" functions from the "Edit" menu (upper_case, lower_case, title_case, swap_case)
- Suggestions for mis-spelled words
- Add word to custom dictionary (might be cool to have general as well as syntax-specific dictionaries)
- I think you forgot to include "Language - English.sublime-package" in the build. Spellcheck was marking everything as mis-spelled until I added the package to "Pristine Packages" and restarted.
