Please change the effect of Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab

I don't really understand why text editors seem to do this, but it's inconsistent with how the rest of the operating system and browsers work. Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab usually move either forward or back 1 tab. I'm not 100% on the logic of how Sublime Text 2 and Notepad++ (possibly other programs, as well) behave with this function, but it just seems to jump all over the place. It'd prefer it if Sublime Text 2 would change the default functionality to match other programs.

Tip: I use the two thumb buttons on my mouse to move forward (Ctrl+Tab) and backward (Ctrl+Shift+Tab) and it is a very time saving method of binding your mouse keys, especially in browsers where you constantly open new tabs with middle-click.

By default ctrl + tab and ctrl+shift+tab navigate to the view you were previously at. To get the behavior you want, add the following entries to your user key bindings.

Code: Select all
{ "keys": ["ctrl+tab"], "command": "next_view" },
{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+tab"], "command": "prev_view" }


The built in commands will also navigate between groups. If you only want it to tab through the current group, see my answer here.
