Hi.

Is it possible to change the default behaviour of Next/Previous Document function (Ctrl-Tab/Ctrl-Shift-Tab or Ctrl-F6/Ctrl-Shift-F6) to STRAIGHT left-to-right/right-to-left switching of open document tabs?

I’d like tab switching work in STRAIGHT order. Let me explain. Suppose I’ve opened three documents – 1.txt, 2.txt and 3.txt. Active document is 1.txt. Pressing Ctrl-Tab twice will bring me back to 1.txt, which I’m totally unhappy with and I’d expect it to be 3.txt, which is 2 steps from 1.txt.

I’d like straight order of tab switching since default behaviour makes it virtually impossible to switch (using keyboard) between 3 or more open documents. Therefore, one has to use a mouse just for switching the tabs! That’s not a good feature for an established professional development tool, which EmEditor certainly is.

I’m using EmEditor Professional version 7.00.1 under Vista…

Go to Customize on the Tools menu, click Window tab, and uncheck “Switch to Last Used Document for Next Document Command”.
