MoveText

Select text and move it around using the keyboard, or setup a text “tunnel” to move code from one location to another.

Installation

  1. Using Package Control, install “MoveText”

Or:

  1. Open the Sublime Text Packages folder

    • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Packages/
    • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 3/Packages/
    • Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 3/Packages/ or ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages
  2. clone this repo

  3. Install keymaps for the commands (see Example.sublime-keymap for my preferred keys)

Sublime Text 2

  1. Open the Sublime Text 2 Packages folder
  2. clone this repo, but use the st2 branch

    git clone -b st2 git@github.com:colinta/SublimeMoveText

Commands

move_text_left: Moves the selected text one character to the left

move_text_right: Moves the selected text one character to the right

move_text_up: Moves the selected text one line up

move_text_down: Moves the selected text one line down

When moving text up and down, funny things happen when the destination line doesn't have enough preceding characters. An attempt is made to keep the text on the same column, but the mechanism for this uses sublime.View.command_history, which doesn't update after every movement. It updates in between “Undo” events, so if you move the text in the opposite direction, or if you pause long enough for an “undo” to register, the text will move correctly. It looks like this:

1. one*dragme*  1. one          1. one       1. one
2. two          2. two*dragme*  2. two       2. two
3.              3.              3. *dragme*  3.
4. four         4. four         4. four      4. *dragme*four

But if you move the text up first, it will move correctly:

1. one          1. one*dragme*  1. one          1. one       1. one
2. two*dragme*  2. two          2. two*dragme*  2. two       2. two
3.              3.              3.              3. *dragme*  3.
4. four         4. four         4. four         4. four      4. fou*dragme*r
