Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

We use Sublime Text only within our department (IT). It helps us write the configuration coding for our network and IT devices. It's been very helpful to our department, the app provides a lot of useful features like writing on multiple lines at the same time and comparing the files with multiple layout views, either vertically or horizontally, its definitely great at assisting the app for our daily work.
In fact, I'm not using sublime text to it extent, there are many features and plug-ins which I didn't experience yet, my work on sublime focus on writing and modifying scripts which are later compiled to codes for networking devices at our organization. Before I use sublime I was writing these codes on note or word files, but after using sublime text I found it much easier and faster to write these codes with sublime.
  • Identifying the different vendor coding within the text.
  • Easy to use and provides many preferences which suits most users's needs.
  • Manipulating text is easy and efficient.
  • The ability to add package controls.
  • You can freely experiance and evaluate the app.
  • You have the option of saving your text with coding such as UTF-8, UTF-16, etc
  • In addition to the ability to manually comparing the text file, Sublime has the feature of automatically comparing the files but it's hard to use and needs to be improved because it's a useful feature.
  • Although Sublime Text has the features of identifying the many vendor's coding, many other vendors' coding can not be identified like Cisco-IOS coding, which would be very useful for writing codes for Cisco devices.
  • Adding the ability to mark or highlight the text with different colors would be nice.
  • Multi line writing.
  • Auto text comparing.
  • Code coloring and layout.
  • Auto completing.
  • Sublime Text helps our IT department tasks a lot in terms of speed, customization, and scalability.
  • It has been a useful app and had no negative impact on our work.
I use Google Keep for taking notes on the go and sharing with my colleagues, sharing tasks for example but for my professional coding I use sublime text, because it has all the features I need to do my work, I use google note on mobile devices but I use sublime on my desktop or laptop.

Do you think Sublime Text delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Sublime Text's feature set?


Did Sublime Text live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Sublime Text go as expected?


Would you buy Sublime Text again?


From my experience, I think Sublime Text would be very useful for any programmer or IT staff whose work involves writing text coding. I guess it would also be useful for accounting and data analyzing work, as it has many features and add-ons which suit such work needs. I think less useful for working with formal letters, or official documents for example.
