Find highlighted text

Find highlighted text

Postby Twen on Sat Jan 14, 2012 3:42 pm

When I hit select a word and hit Cmd-F, the word appearing in the search box is my old search and not the word I just selected. I am not sure, but I believe the behavior is different on the Windows version. Is there a parameter that I could set to get that behavior?

Press command + ,

add the following line:
Code: Select all
"find_selected_text": true

Great, exactly what I needed, thanks a lot. By curiosity, is that the default behavior on Windows too? And if not, why are there different default settings?

The "Find selected text" option defaults to false on OSX to conform to standard Apple conventions. That way people who use other text editors such as textmate can switch over to Sublime painlessly.

That makes sense. If I may ask, how is a Mac user supposed to handle that then? Cmd-C, Cmd-F, Cmd-V?

The flow seems to be Cmd-E and Cmd-F.

To be honest, I don't know. That was one of the first settings I changed and never looked back.
