We have added a new feature! You can now follow changes from specific users in a workspace. Previously, it was only possible to follow everyone in a workspace. While useful, this can be distracting and hectic. If more than one person is editing at a time, you’re liable to get jumped back-and-forth between files. Some of our users requested a more fine-grained approach. Now we’ve added this to all of our editor plugins and our web-based editor.
What follows are instructions for how use this feature in our various plugins. Note: You can only follow people who have edit permission in the workspace. In the case of editor plugins, people who do not have edit permissions do not appear in the list of users you can follow. You can follow more than one user at a time. Also, it’s still possible to follow all changes made in the workspace.
To follow a specific user, click the magnet icon on their user image. To stop following that user, click it again. The magnet icon will reflect the current state. A solid looking magnet means you are following that user.
To follow individual users in Sublime Text open up the command prompt and search for “Floobits - Follow User”, after selecting this option you will be presented with a list of usernames that you can follow. You should see the username of the person you are following in your status bar. To unfollow a user select “Floobits - Follow User” again and click the username you wish to unfollow. You can also stop following everyone with the “Floobits - Stop Following Workspace” command.

In an IntelliJ based editor you can go to tools -> Floobits -> Follow Selected Users or search for
Follow Selected Users from the command prompt (⌘/Cntrl+Shift+A). A list of users with edit permissions will appear. Check the box next to each username that you wish to follow. Open this same list whenever you want to unfollow anyone. To stop following completely select
Toggle Follow Mode from the command prompt. You can also use the toolbar menu Tools -> Floobits -> “Disable follow mode” to achieve the same thing.
