Sublime Text 1.3

Sublime Text 1.3 is now available as a free download for registered users. If you haven’t tried Sublime Text yet, now is a great time to test drive the fully functional trial.

New features in 1.3 are find in files, revamped find and replace panels that preview results as you type and accepts multi-line inputs. Also new are goto symbol, syntax highlighting support for more languages (ASP, JSP, ActionScript and YAML), speed improvements, an expanded API and more. Almost every area of functionality has been improved and polished in version 1.3.

Find in Files

Find in files can search through directories on the file system, in the current project, or across all open buffers. Full Perl style regular expressions are supported. You can step forwards and backwards through the results with F4 and Shift+F4 respectively.

Reworked Find Panel

The find and replace panels now accept multi-line inputs (Ctrl+Enter to add a new line), and will preview the results live in the buffer. There are now shortcuts for each of the find options, which you can see by hovering over the buttons.

Goto Symbol

Ad-hoc Projects

Directories can be opened as projects, via the Project/Open Directory menu or by dragging a directory onto Sublime Text from Explorer.


Thanks to all the beta testers for your feedback and testing throughout the development of version 1.3.

  5. ST works really well in Wine for Linux. Only issue I’ve found (on prior version) is editing the currently open file outside of ST will cause it to hang.

  8. A hex-editing mode would make this infinitely more useful. Still, awesome editor.

  10. Sublime Text is probably the best text editor in the world. Thank you very much for creating it.

    I’ve been following this for a while (and have bought it); frankly, this is the first text editor I have actually liked since Tempus II, nearly 20 years ago!

    This is the best piece of shareware I’ve bought in years, I think, and I particularly love how licenses are per–user (not per–computer) as well.

    About the only thing that could make this more awesome would be a hex mode (particularly for big files).

  11. I like this editor, but wish it had some automatic detection of which syntax highlighting to use based on content rather than just file extension (such as when I open an xml file that has a custom file extension), plus collapsible blocks would be sweet.
