Description

I wonder if one could add the ability to change windows with CTRL+TAB, like one can in mIRC.
It should then swap to the next right window.

#584 says it's shift+TAB, which one is now correct and which key combo jumps to the previous tab?

mirc window keyboard shortcuts:

ctrl-tab ) cycle between open windows
ctrl-shift-tab = ditto, in reverse order

I guess the one in #584 only uses the "reversed" option and not the main one.
Myself I never used the reversed. But these are both great ways of changing channels/windows.

And btw, this mimics most of what internet browsers use for shortcuts. Atleast in IE and Firefox.

Thanks. This works nice!

But I now see that I miswrote the "reverse order" keys.
It should not contain ctrl, so the keys should only be shift+tab to reverse the order.

Sorry for that mistake!

Another wish:
When pressing changing channels with ctrl+tab, and you reach the last channel in the list, you should be able to press ctrl+tab and start over again (loop), instead of not being able to cycle through them all.
This goes for the reverse order also.

Hope you understand. If not, just ask.
Great work!

I don't agree, at least firefox is going forward with ctrl+tab and backwards with ctrl+shift+tab while shift+tab is not.
