Text Pastry

Text Pastry is a free plugin for Sublime Text, dedicated to reduce repetetive work by extending the power of multiple selections.

How can I get started?

If you're familiar with multiple selections, it's pretty straight forward. Place multiple cursors by using CMD+Click or Ctrl+Click, open the Command Palette and select Text Pastry From 1 to X. That's it! We've just pasted incrementing numbers.

Check out the wiki for examples!

Features include:

  • Incremental numbers/sequences (1, 2, 3 or 100, 80, 60)
  • Repeatable number ranges (1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1)
  • Generate UUIDS (ba18f7fc-c387-46da-9544-ed32e49ce6f8 or D306E86C-918F-4551-95A9-CB9865A4DD2F)
  • Extendable list of presets (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or alpha, beta, gamma)
  • Extendable list of commands
  • Create and modify selections
  • Improved paste (paste the first three lines of the clipboard data to the three selected locations)
  • Generate date and number ranges
  • Convert to upper/lower case
  • Duplicate values for pasting (1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4) or (a, a, a, b, b, b, c, c, c)
