Is there anyway in sublime to display informational text on top of the view that does not affect the current buffer?
If so, I can't think of (or find) any plugins that do this.
I am *NOT* looking to:
- add a box around text
- change cursor
- highlight text
- change background color
I *am* looking for any way to convey information:
- overlay text
- overlay icons
- alter background of view with an image (I've read this is not available in either ST2 or ST3)
*Hacks welcome*: I have already thought of completely changing the contents of the current buffer, or using run_command('clone_file') and changing it there. Both of these scenarios leave with the changes in my undo stack (unacceptable). If anyone knows how to disable an edit from entering the undo stack I would greatly appreciate it. My particular plugin could get away with just changing the content and ignoring the edit. Of course still I'd prefer some sort of informational/presentational overlay.
