Switch to last opened tab in Editor
7 views (last 30 days)
I need a quick way to switch between two opened tabs in Editor that are not next to each other. I need a keyboard shortcut that will switch back to the last file I was editing.
I often have many .m files open as tabs. I usually I am actively editing two or three of these files and occasionally editing the rest of them. In particular, I am often switching frequently between two files. This behavior is the default for app switching on Mac/Windows and within other apps such as Textmate. The only keyboard shortcuts for tab switching are to move up/down the list of files (ctrl-pgup/pgdwn). This is clunky. Any suggestions?

This functionality needs to exist. Most Python IDE's have this capability. It is a great hindrance to efficiency.

I don't know if its possible. If your MATLAB version allows it, you can move the tabs and place them next to each other and thenuse ctrl+pguo/pgdown
Or you can use View-> tiles -> Left/right and you can split the editor in 2 and see 2 files at the same time

Yes, this is really annoying.
Matlab - make ctrl-tab switch between buffers. The current near-worthless functionality of ctrl-tab only makes me upset.
And why can't you support column editing?
And no tab completion functionality?
This is the only thing I want in your next release. Stop working on new toolboxes until you can provide a full-featured editor.
