#15221 closed enhancement (fixed)

Changing tabs should be uniform with other programs or able to use own combination, four options doesn't cut it!

Description (last modified by Patrick Steinhardt)

I can't count the number of times I try to change conversations with a simple left handed gesture and am unable to do this, this frustrates me to no end, a simple control + tab option would make everything a lot more streamlined to switch tabs and be able to keep up in conversations without using two handed shortcuts or using the mouse.


Comment by Robbie:

I briefly discussed this with pks and we agreed that Adium should allow the same shortcuts that Safari uses (and remove the setting in Adium's preferences):

  • next tab: Cmd - Shift - right arrow, or Ctrl - Tab key
  • previous tab: Cmd - Shift - left arrow, or Ctrl - Shift - Tab key

(see https://discussions.apple.com/message/12148585?messageID=12148585#12148585?messageID=12148585)


"Comment by pks:"

After discussing this issue on #macdev I will implement Ctrl - Tab only as this is Safaris primary shortcut for changing tabs. As shortcuts can be changed in System Preferences.app this shouldn't really matter, anyways.

(In 546c8a28502f) Selecting next(previous) chat now corresponds to Safaris keybinding Ctrl(+Shift)+Tab. The preference regarding this shortcut has been removed. Fixes #15221.

It is highly (almost forced :) ) recommended to add support for Cmd - Shift - Arrows, Cmd - Shift - [ ]. This shortcuts are used by a lot of users, also the one with arrows seems to be the "default" one in Safari.

Replying to robotive:

I guess default is Cmd+Tab, as this one is displayed for the menu items. But I'll implement those this weekend as I guessed there will be some complaint about not implementing all Safari/OS X-like shortcuts.

I still think that the default one isCmd - Shift - Arrows (or whatever + Arrows), at least they are the ones displayed in Safari's Window menu. Yeah, there already where complaints about this, most notable from Catfish_Man :) And i tend to agree with him on this, as people use different one from this three.

Thanks pks.

I think about backing out my changes, just adding those shortcuts to the preference. This would calm down the discussion and as I understand now my action was too hasty.

It would help us removing Carbon and the issue with multiple shortcuts per menu item, as well.
