SAS Syntax Highlighting in Sublime

Issue

I would like to be able to use Sublime 3 as my SAS text editor but cannot seem to configure Sublime to do so. I’ve visited http://implementing-vdw.blogspot.com/2012/10/new-sublime-text-package-available-for.html and haven’t been able to actually get the SAS syntax highlighting to work in
Sublime.

Here’s what I did, I don’t have/know github so I downloaded the zip file as instructed and placed its contents in C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3\Packages\SAS. I closed sublime and reopened but don’t see SAS as an available syntax.

I’m sure I need to perform another step or two but I don’t know what.

Solution

Determined what the issue was, the ‘Packages’ directory where I installed Sublime Text 3 isn’t the exact directory where you need to place the SAS folder. As a doublecheck to ensure you are placing the SAS folder in the correct location open Sublime -> Preferences -> Browse Packages…, this is the location where the SAS folder should be placed. Once done you will see SAS syntax available under View -> Syntax.
