New user testing questions

Postby skunkbad on Wed Oct 26, 2011 5:36 pm

I've just downloaded Sublime Text 2, and like what I see, but have always used Notepad++, and it allows me to see space and tab characters. A space character is represented by a tiny dot, and a tab character represented by an arrow. When I highlight text in Sublime Text 2 I see these dots and arrows, but I want to see them all the time, not just when code is highlighted. How can I do this?

Also, I found that I can edit a theme by editing the theme's file. Is there any plan to be able to edit themes with a color picker in future versions?

In your default file settings is this section:
Code: Select all
   // Set to "none" to turn off drawing white space, "selection" to draw only the
   // white space within the selection, and "all" to draw all white space
   "draw_white_space": "selection",

So put
Code: Select all
"draw_white_space": "all",
in your user file settings to override the default.

Thank you!

I have one more question. I'm getting older, and so are my eyes. Is there an easy way to bold everything.

I see in the settings file a "font_options", I'll give that a try
