Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I use ubuntu 12.04. Recently I installed Sublime text 2 and registered.

whenever I open a large file, the 'backspace' button of my keyboard doesn't work. But after selecting the text I can delete them with the 'backspace' button.

But if the file is smaller then there is no problem.

what is the problem with the sublime text 2- could anyone please help me?

the same happened to me, and googling I found this solution: itekzone.blogspot.com.ar/2012/06/… Pay attention that the file that you have to modify is the original sublime_text, without the 33 42 by 32 42 replacements. I hope that this helps you! –  user160675 May 21 '13 at 19:53
