I just wanted to say thank you for creating this plugin. I also migrated from TextPad on Windows and the smart cursor feature in that program was a real insight into how programmers actually use the cursor. As far as I can tell in my initial usage you've correctly adapted this feature to ST.

To contribute, I noticed on this threat that aren't any newb instructions for installing this. So I'll add those here and hopefully help anyone else who comes along. These instructions are for ST 2

* Install Sublime Package Manager following these instructions: https://sublime.wbond.net/installation
* Restart Sublime (not sure if this is required)
* Menu: Preferences / Package Control
* Choose "Add Repository"
* Paste in: https://github.com/bizoo/SmartCursor
* Menu: Preferences / Package Control
* Choose "Install Package"
* Type SmartCursor
* You should see the SmartCursor plugin - click on it to install
* Takes a few seconds to download and it should show success at the bottom of ST
* Add the keybindings to your user keybinding file by:
** Menu: Preferences / Key Bindings - User
** Paste this file into your Key Bindings: https://raw.github.com/bizoo/SmartCurso ... ime-keymap
** (Note this file is also located in [sublime program folder]/Data/Packages/SmartCursor if it's easier to get from there)
** Save and close
* Restart Sublime (not sure if this is required)

If anyone sees errors in those install instructions, please repost with corrections. I hope this helps another beginner with Sublime Text and SmartCursor! Thanks for developing this!
