Migrate Sublime Text 2 projects to Sublime Text 3

How to move all your recent projects to from ST2 to ST3, in 6 easy steps.

Problem: moved to Sublime Text 3, the project selection is empty, what to do?

  1. Close Sublime Text (2 and 3, both)
  2. Open this file in TextMate (or any other editor) ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Settings/Session.sublime_session
  3. Scroll all the way to the bottom and locate "workspaces":
  4. Copy the whole workspaces block, with paths to your projects
  5. Open the equivalent ST3 file in TextMate ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 3/Local/Session.sublime_session
  6. Scroll to the bottom and replace the existing, empty, workspaces with the one on your clipboard
