Closing UI using ctrl+q closes all open UI instances

Closing UI using ctrl+q closes all open UI instances

Postby rkedward on Tue Mar 18, 2014 12:21 am

I am using sublime text 3 build 3059 in Linux. I open the UI using the command line with -n option and point to a file or a directory. I may do this multiple times so several UI instances will be open simultaneously. I would like separate instances of the UI to act independent of each other. Using the -n option gets me close but I have found that closing one instance of the UI using ctlr+q / menu->file->quit will close all open UI instances. This is not the case when I close using the X button in the upper right corner which only closes the current instances. This can be painful when there are open instances located in various virtual desktops. Then when you open a file for a quick edit and close it using ctrl+q, all UI instances are closed. This not a good user experience. Is there an option that would allow me to have ctrl+q close only the current UI instance? My real need is to have the instances to act independently. This is the predominate use case for my engineering group.

Just rebind ctrl+q to close_window.
