Sublime Text is a comprehensive word processing tool that includes an attractive and easy-to-use interface, dedicated to anyone who is looking for an alternative text editor with rich features.
The installation procedure takes little time to finish and does not need special attention.
You are greeted by a single window with a dark gray background where you can start typing text. The status bar shows the line and column number, tab size, and text format.
Options are broken down into multiple entries accessible in the menu bar. Apart from using basic controls like undo and redo, you can indent, unindent, duplicate, delete, join or swap lines, as well as toggle comments, transpose and insert lines before or after selected text.
In addition, you may wrap selections with tags, fold colors, convert cases, wrap paragraphs, sort and permute lines. Other features of Sublime Text let you split a selection into lines or expand it to line, word, paragraph, scope, brackets, indentation or tag.
A search function is available throughout the text and for files. You may switch to full screen mode, customize the layout (e.g. columns, grid), enable syntax highlighting (e.g. Perl, PHP, SQL, XML), use a spell checker, as well as record and save macros, among many other options.
Sublime Text has a good response time and minimal impact on system performance, using a very low amount of CPU and RAM. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash. Thanks to its modern interface and myriad of advanced options, Sublime Text should please experienced users who are looking for an all-around text editor.
