Change Sublime Text 2 Appdata location to dropbox

Change Sublime Text 2 Appdata location to dropbox

Postby bradm on Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:12 pm

Love the program. Need to use the same snippets and packages on two different computers. I have dropbox installed but I can for the life of me change the appdata file location for ST2. I have tried

batch file
Code: Select all
@echo off
set "APPDATA=C:\Dropbox\st2"
start C:\"Program Files"\"Sublime Text 2"\sublime_text.exe


--data http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/faq
Code: Select all
sublime_text.exe --data "C:\Dropbox\st2"


I need the program installed so i can set default programs to files like php. So Portable wont work for me..

Thoughts? Ideas?

THANKS!
-Brad

I solved by making a NTFS symbolic link
