don't like ctrl+e (copy the selected text into find)

don't like ctrl+e (copy the selected text into find)

Postby oats on Fri Dec 04, 2009 6:14 pm

This "feature" was added in the Nov 18 beta:
Added a separate key binding, ctrl+e, to copy the selected text into the find panel. ctrl+shift+e will copy the selected text into the replacement string.

Problem is, I am very used to all my other editors automatically doing this with ctrl+f. It is in my muscle memory now, and that is difficult to reprogram. I constantly find myself searching for the wrong text now. Is this configurable in Application.sublime-options?

It is also not enough to just swap ctrl+f and ctrl+e since ctrl+e does not bring up the find panel unless something is highlighted, unlike ctrl+f.

Help?

Agree. I can not get used to this after many other editors, and the established habits. Having both options would be very convenient.

The option was added to the latest beta 20091212 and works great!

Just add the following to your Application.sublime-options:
find.useSelectedText true

Thanks JPS! I MUCH prefer this behavior. Especially when taking advantage of the highlight all instances.

Just wanted to throw out there that I love ctrl+e and ctrl+shift+e and I use them all the time. I appreciate the speed with which you add requested features!
