I’ve got an ultra wide monitor and I don’t have the capability to flip it to vertical and I am wondering if there is a way to setup sublime so I have multiple columns where everything just cascades from left to right?
Sublime lets you split the window into any number of panes that you want, referred to as
The items from the
View > Layout menu let you set up a few different layouts, including four columns. You can also use something like the Origami package to make custom layouts.
I guess one caveat is that, although its easy to have one file open in multiple panes/columns, each view isn’t automatically “scroll-synced” like a reader mode would be, and you’d see the same file name multiple times - i.e. one tab for each pane.
Indeed; in reading back the original question, I see that I missed an important bit of the original question.
Yeah the multiple windows with the same file open doesn’t yield me what I’m looking for but thanks for the suggestion. I don’t know if any editors around support this. I’d sure love it though if Sublime did/would!
I feel like it should be possible with a plugin
Maybe I should attempt to write one… I’ve never tried such a thing!
Looks like at some point there was a plugin with this feature but I can’t find it any longer. Follow-mode for Sublime? . It was called BufferScroll which implemented a follow mode. I’m still kinda shocked this isn’t a typical text editing feature.
