Hi. I am using texstudio since last year. It is very powerfull.
But I am having some problems with ctrl+tab. Let me explain.

We can use ctrl+tab+left or right to jump words instead of moving the cursor
letter by letter. But if there are some arguments inserted (with that red
frame around, like in \frac command), when I try to go back using
ctrl+tab+left, the cursor goes to last red frame instead of to go to last
word.

Here is the text I'd tested.

The ratio is $\frac{1}{2}$ and the new ratio


When I try to go back to 'new' pressing ctrl+tab+left, in fact I go to the
'denominator'.

Any one else have this problem?

Regards.

Sorry, I did a mistake: the command cited before is ctrl+left or right and not
with tab.

• you can adapt it to your liking:

options/shortcuts/editor/Basic Keymappings:
move cursor to right (1 word) assign ctrl+right here
move cursor to left (1 word) assign ctrl+left here

assign whatever you like to "next placeholder or next word" or "next
placeholder"

Oh, I see now. Thanks so much.
Only one more question: the placeholder will be active until I insert a new
one? And only one placeholder is active per time? It Is it not possible to use
these keys to navigate around all the placeholders? I have only the last one
framed.

Regards.
