    That's the standard on german keyboard layouts for cycling through the windows of the active application on OS X. I'd very much apprechiate if this would work in Pd. That said, i think it might actually be a bug in Tcl/Tk that it isn't working right now.

    I tried this and got funny behavior - ctrl < focussed the previous window OK, but also sent it to the back of
    the window stacking order.. Can this be what was intended???

  • Hans-Christoph Steiner

    yes, that's what is intended. I think each WM will have different ideas of how this should work, like for people who have focus changing based on mouse presence not clicking. But I think this is the most common paradigm. Others can be implemented in plugins

    OK - but man, is it bizarre how ctrl-< actes in XFCE - I'm guessing this is XFCE being wierd
    and not our fault. Anyhow, I've applied this for 0.44

  • Hans-Christoph Steiner

    Oh, sorry, I think I misunderstood, and I just tried it on GNOME and it behaved similarly. This was mostly meant for Mac OS X. I guess that [wm stackorder .] does differrent things on different platforms. For anyone who wants to improve this, the thing to do would be to test for platform using $::windowingsystem in ::pd_menucommands::menu_raisepreviouswindow
