All you need to do is change "copy_file_path" to "copy_path".

To discover this, I hit Ctrl` to open the console, then ran


to have all actions logged to the console. I then right-clicked and selected Copy File Path, and

command: copy_path 

showed up. I assigned the key combination, ran it, and it worked. To finish up, I run


so the console doesn't get clogged with unnecessary info, then hit Ctrl` again to close the console.

  • I would really appreciated if you could say how you came to know about sublime.log_commands? Probably sublime's API?

    @Hamid yes, this is documented in Sublime's API.

  • Great answer. thanks @MattDMo. Do I need to install a package for this? I tried right clicking on a file in the sidebar in ST3, and it does not give that as an option. "Copy File Path" is not there. Any ideas?

  • @MattTagg this doesn't work when clicking in the sidebar, you have to click in the body of the file. For working with files in the sidebar, I highly recommend installing the SideBarEnhancements plugin via Package Control.

For those like me that need a shortcut to copy the relative path,

{ "keys": ["alt+p"], "command": "copy_relative_path" }
