Ah, thank you. I did search before posting, honest
I guess I just wasn't searching on the proper keywords. At any rate, I was just looking in the documentation here: http://sublimetext.info/docs/en/
trying to figure this preview feature out and the word preview came up with 0 hits when I searched on it
So I'm left wondering...how do you "open" a file such that it doesn't come up in preview?
