A shortcut for setting file type?


When in an untitled document, if you click on “Plain Text” in the status bar you will be able to choose its file type. Is there a way to do it without using a mouse, like you can in Sublime Text with Cmd+Shift+P?


From the command palette (Cmd+Shift+P): “Grammar Selector: Show” then select language.


That’s exactly what I wanted to do.Thanks!


Ctrl+Shift+L Opens the dialog directly!


The exact shortcut to bring up the Show Grammar panel is (on a mac) is CTRL + SHIFT + L


With Sublime, you can use the command pallet (just like Atom) - and type “set ht…” (or whatever using html as an example) fuzzy search and hit return and it’s set.

For Atom:

ctrl+shift+l feels ok - i guess you can think of Language


cmd+shift+p -> gr -> enter -> ht -> enter

Feels a lot closer to the Sublime flow.


If you want something more similar to the Sublime Text flow, you can use my set-syntax package.


For MacOS ⌃ + ⇧ + L i.e. control+shift+L
