Toolbar Please

Toolbar Please

Postby richl on Wed Aug 21, 2013 10:40 pm

I find it really annoying to have to click "File", "save" every time I want to save my edits. I know you can do ctrl-s but I don't want to do that. Someone invented the mouse now, this isn't vi. I want to click a disk icon like every other editor to save. You can make it hideable like the sidebar. I like this editor but don't want to do control-this, control- shift-that all the time. It's easier to click an icon than remember a bunch of keyboard shortcuts. Some editors change the color of the icon or gray it out to let you know if the file has been saved or not. Also helpful. I can't tell if the file has been saved or not with this editor.

Buttons for ST? Hopefully that'll never happen...

ST can do the same.
Preferences - Settings - User:
Code: Select all
"highlight_modified_tabs": true,


Saving files via mouse?
Create a "Default.sublime-mousemap"
in the User folder of ST and use e.g.:

Code: Select all
[
   // Hold right mouse button + click left button once = save file
   { "button": "button1", "count": 1, "modifiers": ["button2"], "command": "save"}
]

If a vertical toolbar can be added I would be greatly thankful, Some of us don't use both of our hands in keyboard all the time, we sometimes need the other hand to keep the coffe in directions of our mouth.. and some other drinks, food, pen, etc etc.

If the toolbar is optional, you can hide it, and will not harm you.

It would be awesome if there were some API so we could create toolbar-like things. That would be the best.

@tito You can still use the menu, if you have it visible, while you're drinking coffee.

Another idea I've tinkered with (but honestly, I haven't gotten used to it) is to create an a submenu in the menu that appears when you right-click, which you can then populate with your favourite commands.

@quodlibet - Not trying to sound harsh, but I know the difference between a menubar and a toolbar, and I'm requesting a toolbar, a vertical one :P

And yes!, an API for the toolbar would be super awesome

Guys, we have whole regions without any API (e.g. sidebar?) and you dream about APIs for a feature that is not even exists? :mrgreen:

Why, you can just hide it.

Some editors change the color of the icon or gray it out to let you know if the file has been saved or not

Code: Select all
"highlight_modified_tabs": true,

[
   // Hold right mouse button + click left button once = save file
   { "button": "button1", "count": 1, "modifiers": ["button2"], "command": "save"}
]


How would anyone know that? It's not intuitive. Ya that's much easier than just clicking an disk icon.

Default.sublime-mousemap? forget it, too complicated.
I wouldn't shell out 70 bucks for this.

Then it's not for you.

It works for the rest of us.
