I am working on setting up my own keymaps and was wondering if there is the option to set keys to switch the file type that is being worked on. So for example, if I have a regular plain text file and want it to be a css file, I would have a keymap that would change the document type to css. Possible? If so, please explain to me how you have done this.
While the individual shortcut solution is great, it requires editing the config files and most importantly remembering all the shortcuts you create for each sytax.
In the case of switching file formats it might be more useful to quickly access the required format via the command palette:
Set Syntax: CSScommand
This is great because it provides quick access to all the formats available. Start typing
set syntax... and all the available formats will be shown.
