Sublime Text X 20110110

In OS X, the "enter" key (as opposed to the "return" key) puts a newline in the find, goto, etc. boxes. I would much rather it do the same thing as return, because I use my numpad to enter line numbers to go to, and it's always a little bit confusing when hitting enter doesn't send me there.
Thanks!

Jon,

Are there any plans for a ctag interface? Would it possible to display the tags in the project panel? Maybe you could select between the project/file or the tags view.
Also, can the project/file view panel be made resizable horizontally?

Thanks

Here are some thoughts after using "Sublime Text X 20110110" almost exclusively since the release (windows portable version):

Nice to have:
- Access to the clipboard from plugins (for me this is probably the only reason I'm still using the old Sublime Text)
- Quickpanel access for the most recent projects
- Quickpanel access for the most recent files
- Shortcut to re-open the last closed file
- This would be less important if we have quickpanel access to the most recent files
- A command to clear the contents of the console

Slight annoyances:
- Option to use tabs for the open files in addition to the sidebar (or as a replacement)
- Theming of the sidebar
- Option to change which side of the screen the minimap is on (already suggested by others)
- When using "Select file..(ctrl+p)", a given file can show up multiple times in the results (sometimes with the full path, sometimes with a relative path and sometimes with a mix)
- Re-compile user plugins without having to restart
- Feedback in the title or status bar that shows what the active project is
- As mentioned by others, I agree that the project specification and the project state should be stored separately (maybe sublime-project and sublime-workspace?). As it is now, it will be difficult to edit the project files (because there is so much state information stored there) and sharing projects doesn't make much sense. The simplicity of the old project files was great but I really like the features of the new projects. Can't we have the best of both worlds?
- sublime-project: build_system, folders, save_all_on_build, plus any include/exclude instructions
- sublime-workspace: buffers, file_history, find_in_files, find_state, groups, layout, select_file, show_minimap, side_bar_visible, side_bar_width, status_bar_visible
- When word wrap is turned off, it is hard to tell if there is more text at the end of a line (because there is no visible separation between the view and the the minimap). This is especially prominent with a "short" file where the minimap next to a long line is blank.

Functionality that I miss (but is hopefully on the way):
- Sort
- Unique Lines (permuteLines unique)
- The "Change Case" functions from the "Edit" menu (upper_case, lower_case, title_case, swap_case)
- Suggestions for mis-spelled words
- Add word to custom dictionary (might be cool to have general as well as syntax-specific dictionaries)
- Bookmarks

Bugs?
- I think you forgot to include "Language - English.sublime-package" in the build. Spellcheck was marking everything as mis-spelled until I added the package to "Pristine Packages" and restarted.

@subliminator wrote a ctags plugin for 1.x, and I use it all the time. I was planning on working with him to get it ported to X, but it will likely be a bi before we make that happen.

I agree that it would be great to work CTags support into core X though. We will try to work with Jon after we get this working as a plugin to see if this package should make it into the core. The current CTags plugin works pretty well on 1.x, tags aren't updated incrementally, as is the case with most CTags integration with editors. This would really make it much easier to use and it would also be nice to add some Ctags navigation to the buffer context menu, since I've had to do that manually.

In OS X, ctrl+tab doesn't work when caps lock is on.

Thanks again for the above bug reports.

They are drawing for me - can you check that the "Highlight Matches" toggle button (the one just next to the text field) is pressed?

Firstly - thanks for the detailed list!

Recently closed files are listed in the Ctrl+P dialog (which accounts for the duplicates: that will be fixed in the future).

It may be worth doing this, but I'm concerned about confusing people: people may not know what a 'workspace' is, so they use the project functionality when they'd be better served by using workspaces.

It would still be nice to have isolated access to only the recently closed files list (the set of "recent" files minus the "currently open" files sorted by when the file was closed).

I think 'project' files and 'session' files are the correct distinctions here. Session info was stored in 1.x as well, but was a global thing. I like the new project/session stuff, but it has its downfalls as well.

One of the things that annoys me about this new implementation is when I wanna reference a file from another project (B). In the past, I would switch to the other project (B), open the file with the fuzzy finder, and then switch back to (A). The new behavior closes the file of interest when I switch back to (A).

Another request for ODB Editor Protocol. QuickCursor is great.
