I recently installed Sublime Text 3 on my mac and spent a couple of hours reading the doc and installing
LaTeX tools. So far my long-time editor has been
TeXShop, I have a number of text-expansion tricks that help my workflow quite a bit. I imagine, although I could be wrong, that switching to ST would be a step up once the learning curve is behind me, but I hesitate putting the required time/effort, mainly because I have no idea how much of an improvement that would be (and I understand that I would loose the sync-back pdf->tex from Skim to the editor).
So far most of my editing is for
LaTeX source, so I have close to no experience with real programmer's editors (emacs, vi and others), although I tried emacs a couple of times and gave up. Once in a while I use TextWrangler for grep-based search/replace. I do very little programming, so the main reason to learn ST would be for
So my question goes to those who have actually attempted to switch, with or without success.
- How long did it take to you to be as efficient with ST as you were with TeXShop?
- Did you gain things that were not obvious to you from just reading about ST?
- Any particular recommendations?
- If you failed, gave up or switched back, why was that?
