Full screen by default

Full screen by default

Postby darksavant on Fri Aug 05, 2011 11:01 am

Is there any way to make Sublime open in fullscreen by default? I've looked through the options but didn't see an obvious way..

I don't think so but I would also love this feature because my workflow is -> open editor -> switch to fullscreen.

At least in Windows 7 you can start ST2 with:
Code: Select all
sublime_text.exe --command toggle_full_screen

Yeah, this argument works fine in OSX too (and in linux, i think), but it's unusable, always run Sublime from command-line :)

Pls, add this option in preferences!

Sorry about necroing this thread but I am interested in opening up Sublime in full screen by default. Adding --command toggle_full_screen from the command line does work, but I like to launch apps from spotlight and don't always have my terminal open. Is there no option for this? Any way to automatically run a certain command when Sublime opens?

It's not as simple as having a config option would be, but you can create a script to do this.

Go into /Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/MacOS and rename the 'Sublime Text 2' executable to anything else (I called it st2). Now create a new text file called 'Sublime Text 2' and paste the following into it

Code: Select all
/Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/MacOS/st2 --command toggle_full_screen

Save it and run `chmod u+x Sublime\ Text\ 2`.

Your dock shortcut and Spotlight will now start Sublime in full screen.

I know this is an old thread, but in case someone also need this, I made a package to start Sublime Text in fullscreen mode.
It's available on Package Control and Github. :)
