[REQ]: "Next/Previous Window" in Window menu

Post by helmut » Fri May 20, 2005 7:31 pm

Now that we have folder tabs, it's important that people know that Ctrl+Tab pages through the windows and Ctrl+Shift+Tab pages backwards through the pages.

We surely can put this information into the list of short cuts in the Online doco, but I have another idea:

The menu "Window" could have to extra menu entries:

------------------------------------------
Previous Window Ctrl+Shift+Tab
Next Window Ctrl+Tab
------------------------------------------

This would be a simple but effective enhancement, I think. For those cases and users without folder tabs, the menu items don't make much sense, but the disadvantage is minimal.

I agree.

BTW there is also another key to switch the tabs - F8.

Good to know about the F8 key. But I'd espect Shift-F8 to switch backwards, perhaps this can be added.

We have F9 for switching Views (Detail/Icons/...). Perhaps Shift-F9 should switch backwards. And the same thing could be done for layouts (not sure whether there is a function key).

That would be intuitive, I think.

I agree, but more important are custom vi... never mind (just kidding :wink: )

OK, but not F10 or F4. Layouts are not so important.
