Descriptions[edit]

Command Palette

The Command Palette holds infrequently used functionality, like sorting, changing the syntax and changing the indentation settings. With just a few keystrokes, you can search for what you want, without ever having to navigate through the menus or remember obscure key bindings.
Show the Command Palette with ⌘⇧P.
Examples:

  • Snippet to insert a code snippet.
  • Rename to rename a file
  • Package Control to see or insert Packages.
Goto Anything

Use Goto Anything to open files with only a few keystrokes, and instantly jump to symbols, lines or words.
Triggered with ⌘P, it is possible to:

  • Type part of a file name to open it.
  • Type @ to jump to symbols,
  • Type # to search within the file,
  • Type : to go to a line number.

These shortcuts can be combined, so tp@rf may take you to a function read_file within a file text_parser.py.
Similarly, tp:100 would take you to line 100 of the same file.

Split Editing

Get the most out of your wide screen monitor with split editing support. Edit files side by side, or edit two locations in the one file. You can edit with as many rows and columns as you wish.
Take advantage of multiple monitors by editing with multiple windows, and using multiple splits in each window.

  • Take a look at the ViewLayout menu for split editing options.
  • To open multiple views into the one file, use the FileNew View into File menu item.
Multiple Selections

Make ten changes at the same time, not one change ten times. Multiple selections allow you to interactively change many lines at once, rename variables with ease, and manipulate files faster than ever.

  • Try pressing ⇧⌘L to split the selection into lines
  • ⌘D to select the next occurrence of the selected word.
  • To make multiple selections with the mouse, take a look at the Column Selection documentation.
Distraction Free Mode

When you need to focus, Distraction Free Mode is there to help you out. Distraction Free Mode is full screen, chrome free editing, with nothing but your text in the center of the screen.
You can incrementally show elements of the UI, such as tabs and the find panel, as you need them.

  • You can enter Distraction Free Mode using the ViewEnter Distraction Free Mode menu.
Instant Project Switch

Projects in Sublime Text capture the full contents of the workspace, including modified and unsaved files. You can switch between projects in a manner similar to Goto Anything, and the switch is instant, with no save prompts - all your modifications will be restored next time the project is opened.
