As a newcomer to SB2 I am still working my way around this featured rich editor, guess I am not the only one in that situation, so here goes – a beginners tip on SB2.
In Sublime text 2 (SB2) there is a console which can be used for many powerfull operations. The console is in fact a Python console usefull for amoung other testing your own plugins, and a lot of instant commands. It can also be accessed through the menu View | Show Console and the shortcut Ctrl+`.
I was not happy with the tab size and wanted to change it, but I needed to use the console. The default shortcut I could not use on windows + danish keyboard. So I decided to change it to Ctrl+Shift+c.
The effect is instance – no restart of the editor! So test it by pressing “Ctrl+Shift+C”.
The default tab size in SB2 is 4 spaces. I found that too much – here is how I changed it.
Remember that all settings files in SB2 are JSON. So if you know your way around JSON you can easy read and understand the settings files. If not, just be happy that you will start to learn JSON, cause it is a very big thing, perhaps as widely spread as XML.
I will continue to share my experiences, cause if you take from the net, you must give to the net.
