I would like to know a shortcut for switching from the Search Panel to the line containing the result when performing a 'Find'. How would you handle this? Thank you for this resource.

Ah the past and indent is nice! But it's super+shift+v on the mac here. Isn't copy&paste always super+c and paste super+v or is this keyboard layout specific?

Very nice!

yea not bad bro

Very helpful, thank you so much! (Text to lower- and uppercase is such a sweet feature!)

Can you remake this for ST3?

Thanks for share (y)

Make a version of Sublime Text 3 please. Or only changes, it may be useful. Thank you.

Hi, I found this list very useful. I cloned the gist and prettyfied the layout. If you want to pull it, it is here Unfortunately, I don't think github has pull requests for gists yet.

Doesn't has a better way to delete a line ?

Delete lines the same as nano does:

{ "keys": ["ctrl+k"], "command": "run_macro_file", "args": {"file": "res://Packages/Default/Delete Line.sublime-macro"} },
