Sublime Text 2 – advanced new file, etc

  • # December 12, 2012 at 6:59 am

    hey.
    it seems like the **top folder** i have in the st2 sidebar is the one that gets all the new files i save if i don’t specify a path.

    i usually set up a new project with including my master web-projects folder with assets so i have it close:



    FOLDERS
    > web-projects
    > current-project

    (here, /current-project would probably be in xampp/htdocs/)

    can anyone confirm why i can’t set ‘Promote as Project Folder’ on the 2nd folder here?
    if i move it up so it’s above /web-projects then it works automatically.

    kinda annoying to write paths like ../../path/to/whatever to save the file in the proper folder. takes longer than using the mouse.

    one solution i’ve figured out is that u can actually tab-complete the path. makes it faster to write out,
    but it would be nice to get it to “work like it should”.

    Why don’t you actually make use of Sublime Text’s project feature?

    That’s how I use Sublime Text, and it makes a huge difference!

    can’t see anything that i **don’t** do in the links u posted.
    just wanna be quick with the creation of files in a preset path that i can change when i want.
    i guess i just have to switch between the working project and have the asset files in another project.
    lol.

    i watched jeffrey way’s netTuts+ videos on sublime, actually the reasoin why i started with st2.

    ok. the best way is actually to add a new file with clicking on the folder and add it. lol.
