#6346 closed enhancement (fixed)

Switching tabs should stay in the current window

Description

In other applications, such as iTerm and various web browsers, moving through tabs should be confined to the window you are in. Cycling through windows can be accomplished by pressing Command-`. It would be nice if we could at least make this an option.

My personal use case is keeping personal discussions in one window and work related discussions in another. One stays minimized when not in use, the other tends to stay up (depending on where I am it can vary which), and it can be a tad annoying when switching through tabs in one pops up another window.

I can confirm this occurs in 1.0.2 and while I do not normally have more than one chat window open with multiple tabs in each, this would be annoying if I did. I also think this is more of a bug than an enhancement...

Setting milestone to Adium X1.1 since that is the target for revised tab management if I'm not mistaken.

I think this an enhancement, really. Our current behavior is fine, I believe it's deliberately set up to work the way it does.

Chagnging back to enhancement.

One question, jas, does it happen on 1.1svn? Changing the version to 1.0.2 for now.

Replying to cbarrett:

It's broken by design then :P

Yep that was the version I had tested it in.

Shifting this off 1.1; we're feature-frozen for 1.1, and this would be an enhancement to the current implementation, not fixing a bug in it.

I'd rather not mess with this for 1.2; we have enough on that plate already.

This was fixed months ago and I still don't like it.

def06ccb99eb When cycling chats (using "Next Chat" and "Previous Chat") stay in the current window. Do nothing if outside of a chat window.
