tab switching key bindings

Reported by burningTyger | April 15th, 2011 @ 01:46 PM

Since 0.11 I wanted to assign new key bindings for iterating through tabs but I can't. Is it not possible to use something like Terminal tab switching with the command key?

    We actually use the same keybindings as in Terminal: Cmd+Alt+[ and Cmd+Alt+]

    But you can modify them in Help/Keyboard Shortcuts.

    I tried everything to use "my" Terminal keybindings, ie Cmd+ö and Cmd+ä as is common on the German keyboard – to no avail. Either there is a problem with the non ASCII characters or I did something wrong. It doesn't work the Mac way, i.e. clicking on the link text, the pop up opens and then just hitting a new key combo. I got that far. But typing "Cmd+ö" doesn't work either. Neither using a capital letter as in the other keybindings. This is also confusing as a side note. I'd assume Cmd+A to be Cmd+Shift+a and Cmd+a to be without Shift.

    OK, reopened. Cmd+A == Cmd+a btw. SWT handling of keyboard layouts is CONFUSING, but I'll dive back in there :)

    Thanks a bunch. Highly appreciated. Navigating always felt a bit awkward with the other key combos.
