Cycle through list of open files without using mouse
« on: June 11, 2014, 04:29:47 pm »
Is there a way to cycle through the list of open files using only the keyboard and pick one? (Just like alt-tab lets me select a window on most  X window managers).

Thanks!

I suppose it depends on your emulation. Under VS (what I use), Ctrl-F6 and Ctrl-Shift-F6 do next & previous for me.

If you look on your Window menu, it should list the current hot-keys assigned. If you don't have any, you can record a macro to do next, then bind it to a key combo. Repeat for previous.

Or use the 'list-buffers' command bound to a key (maybe already done - check you keybindings) resp. the 'Files' tool window.

I am using next-buff-tab and prev-buff-tab. These two commands switch to next/previous buffer according to their order in tab list. I bound them to ctrl+page up and ctrl+page down.
