Switching between windows
« on: April 01, 2008, 02:55:02 am »
In many code editors with tabs I am used to being able to quickly switch between two open views without touching the mouse. This is often bound to ctrl-tab (release). Lets say I have files A through D open. If I click on tab C, then open view A, and hit ctrl-tab-release; I would go back to C. In these other editors holding ctrl down and hitting tab multiple times cycles through open windows.

In C::B I haven't found a way to do this. Hitting ctrl-tab always goes to the next open tab. Any way to change this so I can touch the mouse less?

Are you saying that in the other editors you use Ctrl+Tab cycles through windows in the order they were last viewed?

Could you name some of these editors?

Maybe Alt+Tab could work for you

Be patient!

Yes. Visual Studio, Slickedit, SoureInsigh all have it as either the default or an option. How do you quickly switch back to the last viewed file?

Settings->Environment->Notebooks appearance->Use SmartTab
Perfect, thanks!
