ScrollOffset

ScrollOffset automatically scrolls the buffer when the insertion point gets near the edge, similar to how vim's scrolloff works. ScrollOffset works with multiple selections, and you can change how far from the edge you'd like to stay.

This Plugin is implemented using Layout-Coordinates, so it also works when you have word_wrap enabled.

When you use multiple selections which do not fit into the viewport, Sublimes default behviour is used. This might change in future versions - you find a TODO in the code where to add the logic for such behaviour.

Ignoring Mouse Input

ScrollOffset runs whenever the selection changes. If you would like to ignore mouse input for ScrollOffset purposes, you must also install MouseEventListener. Once MouseEventListener is installed, ScrollOffset will automatically start ignoring mouse input.

However, selecting more than the viewport can display still feels a bit awkward. Since Sublime does not offer a possibility to detect mouse dragging, one can not implement Sublimes default behaviour when it comes to those kind of selections. Just try it out whether it's a hassle for you.

Install

This plugin is available through Package Control, which is available here:

http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control

As mentioned above, installing MouseEventListener is good idea.
