Printing from sublime

*chime* Printing is valuable for me as well. At the moment I'm exporting to Textpad to print.

btw Sublime is a superb editor and has taken over Textpad as my day to day editor. I bit the bullet and bought it today to show my thanks.

Chalk me up as a user who would love to print with syntax highlighting as well. Sometimes a piece of code rework/review works best when you have it printed.

Hmm, I've just started using Sublime and I will consider buying a copy when Printing is implemented.
$60 for a text editor that can't print? Really?

I seriously cannot recall the last time I printed code. It becomes out of date so quick. I understand that for a code review this might be the traditional way to do it. Then again, using a projector and being able to annotate changes on the fly adds a lot of value in addition to saving some trees. Not to mention, that you will be able to demonstrate your super fast editing skills in front of your manager/peers.

IMO Sublime is first and foremost an editor. I want mad editing features. Sure, having printing available would be nice, but there are so many alternative programs/approaches. What alternatives are there for multiple select the way Sublime does it? $60 and no printing? I prefer to think of it the other way around. These other editors are $??? and have no multi-select?

I think it is a question of priorities. What would we like to be worked on next? Maybe we can utilize a voting mechanism much like other sites do to highlight needed functionality? This forum doesn't seem condusive to that.

I agree with jgoalby completely. Sublime should stay lean and not fall into a feature creep spiral. There's a lot of room for improvement/polishing in its main area: text editing. I don't see it as an all-purpose word processor.

I bought a copy of sublime a few months back, and just wanted to chime in here - printing, especially "pretty printing", is a high priority for me as a user - even if it just rendered to a PDF that I could print via a PDF viewer. As it stands, the lack of a print in Sublime means I have to use different editor even though I prefer Sublime.

Agree 100%.

I understood Sublime to be a text editor, not a code editor. There's a lot more kinds of text than code, including articles, fiction, grocery lists, notes, applications, half-written texts...

Sublime is elegant and fast, and I'd prefer to buy and use it. But until it can print, I'll stick with Notepad++ (which is free, and can print).

I agree, this is definitely my issue, I use text editors to write everything from meeting notes to planning projects not just writing code. Printing unfortunately is a requirement. Between this and the strange "blank screen on resume" I'm just not using sublime as much as my previous editor textpad. It would be great to see some progress on these issues.

Cheers
