Keyboard Shortcuts

The following examples use the macOS keyboard shortcuts. On Linux or Windows use Ctrl+Alt as modifier key instead of Ctrl.

Memorizing the keyboard shortcuts for conversion is easy. Just think of the A key for Atom, the S key for Sublime Text, the T key for TextMate, and the V key for Visual Studio Code:

Action Mnemonic Shortcut
Atom to Sublime Text “A to S” Ctrl+A, Ctrl+S
Atom to TextMate “A to T” Ctrl+A, Ctrl+T
Atom to Visual Studio Code “A to V” Ctrl+A, Ctrl+V
Sublime Text to Atom “S to A” Ctrl+S, Ctrl+A
Sublime Text to TextMate “S to T” Ctrl+S, Ctrl+T
Sublime Text to Visual Studio Code “S to V” Ctrl+S, Ctrl+V
Visual Studio Code to Atom “V to A” Ctrl+V, Ctrl+A
Visual Studio Code to Sublime Text “V to S” Ctrl+V, Ctrl+S
Visual Studio Code to TextMate “V to T” Ctrl+V, Ctrl+T
TextMate to Atom “T to A” Ctrl+T, Ctrl+A
TextMate to Sublime Text “T to S” Ctrl+T, Ctrl+S
TextMate to Visual Studio Code “T to V” Ctrl+T, Ctrl+V
Atom to Atom “A to A” Ctrl+A, Ctrl+A
Sublime Text to Sublime Text “S to S” Ctrl+S, Ctrl+S

For automatic conversion, press Ctrl+C twice.


To ensure automatic conversion to work more reliably, this package installs grammar for a variety of Sublime Text files. As a side effect, these files get proper syntax highlighting.
