Toolbar Please

I have recently made the switch from Ecplise to ST3 and am absolutely loving it! Thanks, well worth the money, I reckon.

I too support the idea of an *optional* toolbar +/ API. There are times when I am using ST and a browser for development. I need the mouse for the browser and if I just want to drag and drop something in ST (ie is faster than the keyboard) it means I have to drop the mouse, use the keyboard then return to the mouse. Much easier to quickly hit the Save icon on the way past. This is a really, really picky and minor complaint so take it with the requisite grain of salt! ;-)

I implemented the suggested Default.sublime-mousemap and it workes fine as another way to keep the mouse in my hand!

Thanks for a great product.

It's easier to click an icon than remember a bunch of keyboard shortcuts. Some editors change the color of the icon or gray it out to let you know if the file has been saved or not. Also helpful. I can't tell if the file has been saved or not with this editor.

I really like the automatic saving feature[1], because if I save a new file, I have to type in the name anyway. Together with the unsaved tab highlight, it serves me far better than a toolbar.

Saving when window focus is lost. In the preferences:
Code: Select all
"save_on_focus_lost": true

Create a "Default.sublime-mousemap"
in the User folder of ST and use e.g.:

Code: Select all
   // Hold right mouse button + click left button once = save file
   { "button": "button1", "count": 1, "modifiers": ["button2"], "command": "save"}

This worked for me on Windows and is really helpful. I am setting up my first Mac and this doesn't seem to work. The reason seems to be that under Windows the context menu is on mouse up. On the mac it seems to be on mouse down. That is the only difference I can see. Anyway, has anyone got this to work on a Mac? If so, how did you do it?

A toolbar would be really useful. If you don't want to have a toolbar, then it should be hide able. But this only addresses one of many disadvantages of not having a toolbar. For instance, I want to be able to toggle my sidebar buy clicking a button. Sure I can use the keyboard shortcut (and I do) but it's a bit of a PITA.

A toolbar and toolbar API would make this already useful editor much more so.
