Firefox like tab switching?

    Hi, I love Notepad++, but one thing that really bugs me is switching tabs.  I am used to the Firefox keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl-PageUp or Ctrl-PageDown), which I find more efficient than those in Notepad++.  I tried editing the keyboard shortcuts but they still don't function the same as in Firefox- i.e. immediately switch tabs.  Am I the only one who would like to see this change?

    Yup, Keyboard Shortcuts can be modified but they are not working like Firefox. I agree with you! SUPPORT!

    Yep.  Specifically Notepad++ needs "Left Document" and "Right Document" navigation controls, not just "Next Document" and "Previous Document". 

    Ctrl-Tab works ok if you only live in 2 documents, but we need to swap between a ton of windows…  Ctrl-PgUp  Ctrl-PgDn is getting to be standard methinks.

    Great stuff otherwise!

    As for me, I like use mouse scrolling roll to walk tabs.
    I think it is the most important lack of Notepud ++.
    What can I do to release it?

    Sorry, not walk tabs but scroll tabs.
    When there is too many tabs that is a problem to navigate between the first and one of the last of them.
