The quick brown fox
ate the lazy dog.

In vim, if my cursor is at n in brown, and I execute d/lazy, I'll erase everything from brown to lazy. If I do c/lazy, similarly I'll do all this while jumping into insert mode.

With Sublime Text 2 (incl. Vintage Ex), this doesn't work. The d and c commands are ignored after / brings up a search box. (the search, however, is performed).

Is there any way around this or an alternative?

This limitation as already been discussed here and on SO. I don't think there's a solution. The alternative is to use Vim – romainl Dec 4 '12 at 7:00
No, I don't think there is. As much as they like to boast (and ST2 is a really nice text editor) we've still to wait for one that really has all vim key functions. – Rook Dec 4 '12 at 8:22
