Cycle through tabs with keyboard by tab position

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Currently there are two keyboard shortcuts two cycle through open tabs: Ctrl+Shift+Left and Ctrl+Shift+Right:

It seems that these shortcuts cycle through tabs by their order of opening date. Instead, would it be possible to get an option to cycle through tabs by their position order on the tab bar?

So Ctrl+Shift+Left -> move to the tab to the left of the current one.
And Ctrl+Shift+Right -> move to the tab to the right of the current one.

Also, the keys comboboxes on the screenshot above would gain to be larger. smile

Hi,

Do you have any plan to implement these features?

Also, would you be able to add "Ctrl + Tab" and "Ctrl + Shift + Tab" as options for the shortcuts ?

Hi,
Do you mean you can't configure Ctrl+Tab in File->Options?

Hi David,

That's right (I'm using RDM Free in case that matters).

Hi Otiel,

We've added the CTRL+Tab and CTRL+Shift+Tab shortcuts. We've also added Cycle Next/Previous Tab to move through tab in the order they appear in instead of the order they were created. We've also made the comboboxes larger. This should be available in the next patch.

Those new shortcuts don't seem to be working for me (RDM free 3.0.13.0)

Hello,

Cycling should work properly in the next patch.

Hi,

It seems that there is a bug linked with these keyboard shortcuts. As soon as I close a tab, I cannot access all tabs anymore using Ctrl+Tab, while it still works with Ctrl+Shift+Right.

Hi,

Coming back on this issue:

  • As soon as I close a tab, the Ctrl+Tab shortcut doesn't cycle on all available tabs. Some tabs become inaccessible.
  • The cycling doesn't work correctly anymore. It seems to work on the tab open time order, not on the display order.

I will verify this. Thank you

Hi David,

I've made some more tests following the recent release of RDM Free 4.0.0.0:

  • The "Cycle Next/Previous Tab" shortcuts don't exit anymore...
  • ... but it's not an issue for me since the "Select Next/Previous Tab" shortcuts cycle through tabs in their displayed order.
Seems that you guys have merged both functionalities?
I don't have both issues I mentioned in my previous message anymore, so it's all good now. smile

The only issue I have related to these shortcuts, is the one described here.
