With my Mac, everytime I want to Edit a file from Filezilla, it open a new Sublime text window. Is there a way to tell Filezilla to open the file in the current window if it already exist?

Are you sure it opens a new instance and not just a new window? (Meaning: Are there really two Sublime Text dock icons appearing?) –  slhck Feb 26 '13 at 14:17
You're right, it open a new window, not a new instance. I'll correct that in my question. Thank you. –  Simon Arnold Feb 26 '13 at 14:19

Try adding

"open_files_in_new_window": false

to your user settings.

This is a Mac-only option, so it should not affect the usual behavior of Sublime Text that is common for all platforms.
