Switch words Shortcut


Hey guys,
I recently switched to atom from sublime and even though most features are similar, I am missing the ctrl+T shortcut which would switch/exchange two highlighted words. E.g. ‘test1’ ‘test2’ would become ‘test2’ ‘test1’.
Is there an explicit feature like this in atom?

Thanks for your time,



Atom has a transpose command, editor:transpose, which is what I recollect Sublime called it, but it doesn’t behave like Sublime’s transposition.

In your example, the produced result would be 1tset 2tset instead of test2 test1


Did they ever add this? The transpose in Atom is pretty much worthless, whereas the one in Subilme is extremely useful.


It wouldn’t be too hard to write a command in init.coffee to do this.
