Multiple views of same buffer in ST2

Multiple views of same buffer in ST2

Postby aparajita on Sat Jul 30, 2011 1:57 am

How does one get multiple views of the same buffer in ST2? The menu item and clone command are gone, and I have not succeeded through the UI.

You can use File/Clone File for this

Doh! :oops:

My eye kept seeing "Clone File" as "Close File". "Clone" is actually not the best terminology -- when I see that I think that the file itself is going to be copied somehow. Might I suggest changing it to "Open In New Tab"?

Didn't it used to be called "new view into buffer" or something? I liked that phrasing... but then again I guess some people might not know what "views" and "buffers" are. Hm.

For those of you looking for a similar answer, this functionality is now in:
File > "New View into File"
