My custom tab switching keymap isn't working in Windows


#1

I’m trying to switch between tabs using SHIFT-ALT-[ or SHIFT-ALT-]

However, it isn’t working.

Here are my keymap settings:

'body':
    'shift-alt-]': 'pane:show-next-item'
    'shift-alt-[': 'pane:show-previous-item'

I’ve also tried:

'body':
    'shift-alt-}': 'pane:show-next-item'
    'shift-alt-{': 'pane:show-previous-item'

Any ideas why this doesn’t work? All I see are the ALT menubar underline characters appear like I’m selecting a menu item.

Thanks.

You can open the keybinding resolver (ctrl+.) to check what Atom thinks what key-combo you pressed. In my case, when I press alt-shift-[ the keybinding resolver shows only alt-{, so try that one :smile:

That worked!

Thanks.
