- most of the time I don't end up using data from scratches so "create new file and cut-and-paste into it from scratch" seems to be good enough.. I don't have any data on how people use it though - you can rename scratch to have e.g. ".html" extension and it will be highlighted as html

This is a great plugin and I'm finding it very useful. Two things would help make it even more useful. #1, being able to save your scratch file as an actual file in your project. Sometimes I start something and end up using it. Creating a new file, copying over, etc.. could be easier. #2, Syntax highlighting. For the same reason above really. my scratch could be HTML, JS, etc. Would be good if we could select what language we want this highlighted in. No idea if either of those two things are possible, but regardless, it's a great plugin. Thank you!

Absolutely great! But default key bindings could be better. Currently it clashes with Alt+C in "Find in Path" window.

Good plugin, but it lacks syntax highlighting and support form XML, HTML etc.

Simple and useful, a very nice feature would be to set language of the file on the file.

An example of usage would be the need to alter html or xml which I don't have a local file of. One can just paste the contents to the scratch and edit the snippet with the powerful ide features, otherwise I resort to creating temporary files.
