Code editors allow the users to edit the code scripts and text documents with various shortcut keys. In this chapter, let us understand through various examples about editing options of first text document in Sublime Text.
In this example, you will see how to add print statements at two locations.
Step 1 − Consider the first script of Python with the following code in it −
Step 2 − Let us suppose that, in the given script you want to mention the starting and ending points of the loop, using simple statements. You can write the print statement wherever required, however, in Sublime Text editor you can simultaneously add comments and statements in two places with a shortcut of Ctrl+cursor point for Windows or Linux, and Cmd+cursor point for Mac. Then, you can see the cursor points as mentioned below −
Step 3 − Now, you can insert the print statements at both the locations of the mentioned cursor points, as shown in the image below.
Sublime Text editor includes a feature to find the occurrences of the keywords included in the scripts. The shortcut key for finding occurrences of the keyword is Ctrl+D after highlighting the associated keyword.
If you want to search for a keyword, say print from the given code, you can use Ctrl+D or Cmd+D to get the count of occurrences of the associated keyword.
Appending Comments in Line
We can append comments at the end of line using the shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+L for Windows and Cmd+Shift+L for Mac operating system after selecting the code section where you actually need the comment.
