Is there a way to drag selected text?

Is there a way to drag selected text?

Postby Rost on Fri Aug 10, 2012 9:36 am

In many other editors one can select text with mouse and drag it to another place in code.
Can we do such a thing in Sublime?

Thanx in advance

Yes, at least in the mac version, although with not much visual feedback.

Unfortunately, in the win version I haven't such a thing.

Actually win version have this for quite a while now:

Build 2182
Release Date: 5 March 2012
OSX and Windows: Added text drag and drop


Just make sure you have
Code: Select all
"drag_text": true

in your config file

Updating the program helps to solve this. Thanx!

I think this thread is not very useful for others, so I suppose it must be deleted.

Hi

so, ver. 2.0.1 b 2217, "drag_text": true, but dragging still does not work.
I've seen reports about it in couple of places here - I'm on 64bit Linux - is there any known workaround this problem, since I'd like to switch to sublime from NetBeans (don't use all the features anyway), just being on hold due to drag selection thing :/

regards

I'm having the same problem. It seems to be a bug, and might be specific to the Linux version. I'm running version 2.0.1, build 2217 on Ubuntu Linux.

Text dragging is not currently supported under Linux

Are you sure? It works fine in OSX Nightly 2219 at least.
