Tips and tricks to get the most out of using Editra

Tab Navigation

Postby cody » Tue Jul 21, 2009 4:19 pm

There are a large number of ways to navigate between open documents. This post is intended as a quick reference to some of the primary ways to do so.
  1. CTRL+Tab will allow you to cycle through all open documents via the keyboard

  2. Drop down arrow on tab control, clicking on it will show all open tabs

  3. Tab scroll arrows, scroll tabs left or right

  4. Mousewheel (Mac/Linux only), tabs can be scrolled with the mouse wheel

  5. Command buffer allows direct jumping to a given tab by index:
    - [1-9]*n will bring the tab # to the right of current tab to be the selected tab 'n' by itself will move one tab by default.
    - [1-9]*N will do the same but moving to the left

"3. Tab scroll arrows, scroll tabs left or right"

???

Where are tab scroll arrows supposed to be? I'm running Editra 0.7.20 on OS-X lion 10.7.5.

They are only visible if you have more tabs open than can fit in the tab container area.

They are little left/right triangles that appear at the left and right side of the tab area.
