Description monk.e.boy 2011-06-23 15:03:58 UTC
I noticed that when you drag a code window it shows a tiny screen shot of the code.

Could this also be used to make a sublime minimap of the code?

Can the right hand gutter marks (e.g. changes, search occurrences etc) also be integrated into this?,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1279&bih=617&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi

I drafted a plugin for that. The code is based on a component from BlueJ.

So in my perspective we can resolve the issue, or?
Comment 7 markiewb 2015-05-09 12:31:49 UTC
Resolve as wontfix because there is a 3rd party plugin for that
