About This Documentation

This is the unofficial documentation for the Sublime Text editor, maintained by volunteers. We hope it’s useful!

Conventions in This Guide

  • This guide is written from the perspective of a Windows user, but most instructions should only require trivial changes to work on other platforms.
  • Relative paths (e. g. Packages/User) are rooted at the data directory unless otherwise noted. The data directory is explained in the Basic Concepts section.
  • We assume default key bindings when indicating keyboard shortcuts unless otherwise noted. Due to the way Sublime Text maps keys to commands, some key bindings won’t match your locale’s keyboard layout.

Before you continue reading the material contained in this guide, we encourage you to take a look at the Basic Concepts section.

Happy learning!
