Set the Default File Extension for Sublime Text to .txt

As an avid user of Sublime Text (absolutely love it!) the fact it doesnt auto-assign a file extension for plain text annoys me! This is mostly because on a Mac all files without a file extension will not preview properly when your navigating the finder.

So to ensure all your sublime text (plain text) files are automatically given a .txt file extension, follow these steps;

Open Sublime Text, and create a new file (COMMAND + N).

Choose preferences, Settings Syntax Specific as shown below;

In the right pane add the following line in between the braces;

“default_extension”: “txt”

Now, when you save your file it should automatically include the .txt extension.
