    Command-Tilde and switching through tabs

    Vee S Community Member
      I noticed while using tabs today that if you reorder the tabs and then switch through them using Command-Tilde, it doesn't move through from left to right. It just keeps the order of when they were opened by Photoshop.

      For those of you who use tabs, do you feel that the order should change if you rearrange the tabs, similar to the behavior of tabs on a browser? Personally, this would make sense to me because of the type of work I do where I've got multiple comps which are related and should be presented in a certain order.

          V6:

          I really think that it is important that you learn HOW the program actually works now, and get more experience in using it, before you question WHY every decision was been made by the engineers who designed Photoshop.

          Once you have really mastered the use of the program as it is now designed, you will be able to make more informed suggestions and requests in the "Feature requests" section of the Forum.

            Hey Ann, I don't believe I'm asking a "why" question here (just wanna know others' opinions on the current tab switching behavior) but I realize I'm asking a lot of questions that may be outside of the community's expertise. Thanks for pointing out the Feature Requests forum.

              I agree v6v6v6. For some reason Anne is in a position where she feels it necessary to defend CS4's interface, with unnecessary aggression, as if it were completely incapable of improvement.

              A feature request that I think I made a while back, seem to remember, was to be able re-order open documents or Tabs by criteria, like File Name or Modification Date. You could also add to that Opening Order. Maybe the command tilde, and Control TAB shortcuts could behave in different ways?

                My point is purely that Feature requests need to be made in the right place in either the Feature Requests section of the Forums or by posting directly to Adobe at:

                http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/contact.html

                This has NOTHING to do with defending CS4's Interface but has everything to do with actually learning to use the program AS IT CURRENTLY EXISTS so that your suggestions for improvements come from real experience and understanding.

                Also, we need to remember that Adobe has the freedom to act on our request (or not!) in their own sweet time.

                I have been regularly logging the same Request since version 6 and it still has not made its way to the top of their "To Do List".

                  Plonking V6 :/ No offense, V6. This just means I won't see your posts anymore, that's all.

                    Yup, this would be a nice option to have.
