Two quick questions about Sublime Text

Two quick questions about Sublime Text

Postby BrettJ on Tue Feb 23, 2010 11:54 pm

After using a range of different code editors for Windows, and finding both good and bad features of each, I was delighted to find Sublime text, mainly because it encompasses most of the things I like about other text editors but without their drawbacks (plus the slick minimap and scrolling). Anyway, I have a couple of questions regarding Sublime text.

    Image

  • I'm largely using Sublime Text for writing XHTML/CSS; when I begin writing an html tag, it automatically adds the ">" (pictured above), which may be convenient in some instances, but I find myself needing to press the right arrow key after typing the declaration to move the cursor inside the tag to continue adding content. Is there a way to disable this?

  • The FAQ mentions you can run Sublime text from a thumb drive by redirecting the program's appdata folder to a specified folder on the thumbdrive using the --data flag in the command line; is this a command line in Sublime text or are you supposed to run the program with that flag added in to its target or am I way off?

Cheers,
BrettJ

It's a flag you pass to sublime from your shortcut, shell, etc. See http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/command-line. Something like so from cmd.exe, for example:

Code: Select all
sublimetext.exe --data d:/path/to/sublimetext/data
