if you want tmux to pass those keys through to applications inside you

there is no standard key format for any modifiers except meta and ctrl,
tmux only produces xterm-style keys (which do support shift and
shift+meta etc) with this option on and most applications still don't
recognise them

Just re-reading what you've said. I think we may have mis-understood each other. I think you may have believed I was asking how I could make an application receive a key combo passed-through by tmux and then have said application to act upon it accordingly?

What I was having a problem with is the situation where I have several windows in a tmux session. I then use less to open a file, and whilst the file is in the open state I cannot use the tmux kind-binding I have set for next-window or previous-window.

My sequence of events is


less ~/.bashrc

I then C-S-Left to go the previous-window  - it does not work.

I do not wish for less to interpret C-S-Left, I wish for tmux to interpret C-S-Left which I have bound to previous-window; but somehow having an application open blocks this. 

The key bindings function as expected when no applications are open in my terminal. Can this be worked around?
