I use Sublime Text 2 and because I use to work in different computer I don't like to change the default setting, so I note that Ctrl+Shift+/ is overridden in ubuntu but I don't know where to verify this.

Ctrl+Shift+/ is for block comments and is very handy, have any of you fixed this?

Update, I just notice something that is even wrong.

My laptop has num keyboard, that includes in it the / but sublime do nothing when I use Ctrl+/ (in the num pad), but works with the / in my 7, I mean, Ctrl+Shift+7

I'm totally lost now

  • Is override by which action? In other words, what does it happens when you press Ctrl+Shift+/ ? – enzotib Aug 16 '13 at 15:46
  • That is the weird thing, at least in my computer, nothing happens... nohing... if I change it to ctrl+shift+alt+/ ... neither happen and also does work... – raulricardo21 Aug 16 '13 at 16:08
  • BUt if a change to lets say ctrl+shift+c... then it works – raulricardo21 Aug 16 '13 at 16:09

I think the correct code for the numpad / is keypad_divide. You should be able to use it by changing the user keybindings as follow:

    { "keys": ["ctrl+keypad_divide"], "command": "toggle_comment", "args": { "block": false } },
    { "keys": ["ctrl+shift+keypad_divide"], "command": "toggle_comment", "args": { "block": true } }

Also, you seem to have an ISO keyboard, if you want to use the 7/ key for comments you have to change your keybindings like so:

    { "keys": ["ctrl+7"], "command": "toggle_comment", "args": { "block": false } },
    { "keys": ["ctrl+shift+7"], "command": "toggle_comment", "args": { "block": true } }
  • How did you know the correct code was keypad_divide? Where can one look these up? – Richard May 12 '16 at 0:45
