switch focus between two editors

I’m not sure what has changed, but under a duo-editor layout, I used to use Ctrl+Tab to switch focus between the two editors, the binder will be ignored unless I brought it out.

Ever since I upgraded the OS X to El Capitan, the behaviour of Ctrl+Tab has changed, it will move the focus between the two editors AND the binder, it’s really annoying.

I understand that I can use Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+E/r to swtich to the edtiors directly, but they are too awkward to use on a regular basis.

Is there any way to change it back?


Nothing has changed here - Ctrl-tab has always switched between the two editors and the binder. Perhaps the difference is just that you are in full screen mode? In full screen the binder will slide in from the left if it is not visible. If you are not in full screen mode, Ctrl-tab will only switch between the two editors. This is how it has always worked - although I can see an argument for not sliding out the binder.

All the best,

Thanks, Keith.
Just like you said, it’s in full-screen mode, I was trying out the new Split View of El Capitan. I do think the slide out is not necessary though, especially when it’s hidden, if I want to bring out the binder, I can always use Opt+Cmd+B.
For me, it’s very important to have a hotkey for switching directly between the two editors.


I have made the change to a future version. :slight_smile:

All the best,

That’s great news, thank you, Keith!
