I am using Firefox & add-in Vimperator and want to use Sublime to edit textareas.

Currently when I focus textarea and press CTRL+i I get "Command not found: gvim". I already have Sublime installed and would love to use it if possible for editing text in textareas. Any idea how I can do that?

When you focus using what program? Using what operating system (both sublime and vim are cross platform)? – terdon Sep 18 '13 at 20:29
You may want to consider using wasavi instead, though it might not be as feature-rich as you want. – K Robinson Sep 20 '13 at 15:04

OK, I'm typing this from within the Sublime Text 2 editor... it proved to be harder than I expected.

You need to go to: c:\Users\$USERNAME$_vimperatorrc and enter this line:

set editor='d:\\Portable\\Sublime\ Text\ 2.0.2\ x64\\sublime_text.exe -f'

Make sure to escape both \ and SPACE like you can see from example. This thread helped: Vimperator. Setting an external editor in Windows XP
