Sublime Text Editor shortcuts

Goto Anything

Use Goto Anything to open files with only a couple of keystrokes, and instantly jump to symbols, lines, or words.

Triggered with Ctrl+P, it’s possible to:

Type a part of a file name to open it.
Type @ to leap to symbols, # to look within the file, and: to travel to a line number.

These shortcuts are often combined, so [email protected] may take you to a function read_file within a file Similarly, tp:100 would take you to line 100 of an equivalent file.

Goto Definition

Using information from syntax definitions, Sublime Text automatically generates a project-wide index of each class, method, and performance. This index powers Goto Definition, which is exposed in three different ways:

A popup is displayed when hovering over a logo
Pressing F12 when the caret is on a logo
The Goto Symbol in Project functionality

Symbol indexing is often customized on a per-syntax basis via configuration files, allowing users to tailor the feature to their needs.

Command Palette

The Command Palette holds infrequently used functionality, like sorting, changing the syntax, and changing the indentation settings. With just a couple of keystrokes, you’ll look for what you would like, without ever having to navigate through the menus or remember obscure key bindings.

Multiple Selections

Make ten changes at an equivalent time, not one change ten times. Multiple selections allow you to interactively change many lines directly, rename variables with ease, and manipulate files faster than ever.

Try pressing Ctrl+Shift+L to separate the choice into lines and Ctrl+D to pick the subsequent occurrence of the chosen word. to form multiple selections with the mouse, take a glance at the Column Selection documentation.

Powerful API and Package Ecosystem

Sublime Text features a powerful, Python API that permits plugins to reinforce built-in functionality.

Package Control are often installed via the command palette, providing simple access to thousands of packages built by the community.

Key bindings, menus, snippets, macros, completions, and more – almost everything in Sublime Text is customizable with simple JSON files. this technique gives you flexibility as settings are often specified on a per-file type and per-project basis.
