symList – clickable function list for Sublime Text

Unlike UltraEdit, Sublime Text doesn’t offer a clickable functions list for mouse based code navigation.

symList is a quick & dirty workaround for Sublime Text which displays the builtin symbols list for the current document as a dedicated column on the right side of the editor screen.

System Requirements

  • OS: Windows or Linux (MacOS untested)
  • Sublime Text 3

Included Files

  • symlist.py


Download „symlist.py“ and copy the file to the Preferences / Browse Packages / „User“ directory.

For better handling, add a keyboard shortcut like

{ "keys": ["ctrl+alt+s"], "command": "symlist" }

to your personal key bindings.

  • symList was developed for and only works as expected in „Single“ layout mode.
  • Sometimes symList misses a file update or focus change – switching to another file and back will solve the problem in most cases.
  • When symList is active while exiting Sublime Text, Sublime Text will start up with an empty column on the right
