Ctrl + Tab doesn't switch documents
Ctrl + Tab to switch open documents doesn’t work for me. I checked keybord settings. It shows Ctrl+Tab for next document and Ctrl+Shift+Tab for previous document. Keyboard diaglo doesn’t show any conflicts.
Othen shortcuts e.g Ctrl+n for new page work without any issue.
What am I missing?
From your description, I cannot tell. “It works for me”:
Ctrl+Shift+Tabproperly switch between the tabbed documents.
I am using ? > Debug Info > Copy debug info into clipboard:
Notepad++ v7.8.4 (64-bit) Build time : Jan 29 2020 - 01:31:03 Path : C:\usr\local\apps\notepad++\notepad++.exe Admin mode : OFF Local Conf mode : ON OS Name : Windows 10 Enterprise (64-bit) OS Version : 1903 OS Build : 18362.592 Plugins : ComparePlugin.dll LuaScript.dll MarkdownViewerPlusPlus.dll mimeTools.dll NppConsole.dll NppConverter.dll NppEditorConfig.dll NppExec.dll NppExport.dll NppFTP.dll PreviewHTML.dll PythonScript.dll QuickText.dll XMLTools.dll
It may be that you have a plugin that has hijacked the
Ctrl+Tabsequence without telling the Settings > Shortcut Mapper that it has done so (so that Shortcut Mapper doesn’t know to tell you that there’s a conflict). Or it may be that you have another application (like AutoHotKey) that remaps that sequence.
You might try using Settings > Shortcut Mapper to change the keyboard shortcut to something else, and see if it works; if it does, then it’s likely something in your system hijacking
Ctrl+Tab; if it doesn’t, then something might be weird about your instance of Notepad++. Let us know your results (including the Debug Info like I showed above), and we might be able give some next-steps.
Thanks to your comment I found the culprit. It’s “Multi PuTTY Manager”. If I close it Ctrl+Tab in Notepad++ works as desired. By the way Multi PuTTY Manager" also blocks Ctrl+Tab in Firefox.
Thanks for helping!
