Sublime Text 3 Notes

Tab Colours

Suprisingly difficult! Dispite lots of threads on the subject, still took some figuring out. I am using the "Monokai" theme. For your theme perhaps a different file needs editing but you can play with it...

In C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3\Packages there is a file Theme - Default.sublime-package. Backup this file and then rename a copy to Theme - Extract the file to a temporary location and edit the file medium_dark_selected_tab_bg.png. Change it any way you like (I just filled it with red). Write the file back to the ZIP and then rename the ZIP back to its original name so that it has the .sublime-package extension. Load up sublime and your tabs should be highlighted.

Now my tabs look like this:

View Same File In Both Split Panes

When a file is open, click on File -> New View Into File. You can then drag the new tab to the other pane and view the file twice. [Ref].
