Is there a way (core or plugin) that a closing html tag name changes accordingly when renaming the opening one ? A behaviour similar to multi-selection...

    Are you looking for a way to change it, or is it happening you you and you don't know why?

The Zen coding plugin has a command "select matching tag name" which selects the nearest opening and closing tags relative to the cursor.


The ZenCoding plugin has been discontinued, see the alternative: Emmet

(Super) + Shift + K // Rename tag shortcut

Also available via Package Control, under the same name.


Use the Emmet plugin shortcut key to rename tag in your editor:

[Super + Shift + K] on mac //In OSX environment, super key = Command key.
[Ctrl + Shift + '] on windows

It worked perfectly I already tested with sublime text


You can also add this command to userKeyBindings:

{"keys": ["your key bind.."], "command": "rename_tag"} // like super+shift+k
