Better fullscreen support in Sublime Text on Mountain Lion

Apparently Mountain Lion as a laptop-friendly operating system does not handle multiple displays very well. Virtual desktops for apps in fullscreen mode are a pretty neat feature and work very well on 13' macbook, however, they can be a real pain in the *ss when you try to connect 27' display only to look at gray 13' rectangle.

  1. CMD + ` (or just go to Preferences -> Settings - user
  2. add this to your JSON file:

    // Sublime Text must be restarted for this to take effect.
    "use_simple_full_screen": false,
  3. restart ST2

  4. fin.
