Tabs in dialogs should be made switchable using keyboard  
Written by mvrlik the 5 Apr 14 at 16:20. Global category: Shortcuts. New
Notepad++ contains few dialog windows with tabs inside, but there is no way to navigate between tabs using keyboard.

Standard keyboard shortcuts to navigate between the tabs are:
Next tab: Ctrl+Tab or Ctrl+PgDn
Previous tab: Ctrl+Shift+Tab or Ctrl+PgUp

This is standard behavior expected in all Windows applications. Please help Notepad++ comply and stop need of moving hands from keyboard to mouse. This will not only help users work faster, but also enable macros coming from keystroke-sending tools like AutoHotKey.

Also it is normal to place focus on tab, so Left Arrow, Right Arrow, Home and End switch between tabs, but I don't request this.

Solution #2: Replace obsolete tab control for modern one
Written by mvrlik the 5 Apr 14 at 16:24.
Notepad++ is obviously using some aged and obsolete tab control to display its tabbed pages. Replace it either with native Windows tab control (this will solve all issues with 'weirdness' of current control) or with latest tab control available for development platform used to build Notepad++.
