When running multiple SQL statements, is there a keyboard shortcut to switch between result tabs?

No shortcut currently. The main tabs listen to Ctrl+Tab but it's impossible to catch the same shortcut for different actions I'm afraid, so I was clueless how to solve that. Ideas?

Oracle SQL Developer uses Alt+Left and Alt+Tab. MySQL Workbench uses Shift+Left and Shift+Right. Toad for MySQL displays results in a single two-panel tab (rather than individual tab) but other tab sets can be browsed with Shift+Left and Shift+Right.

As I've been testing these other programs for my reply, my impression is that navigating with Tab and Ctrl+Tab is incoherent and annoying in all of them.

How about Ctrl+Alt+Tab? I am not a big fan of using the arrow-keys as I try to use the left hand only for the keyboard (so the right hand can stay on the mouse).

Something different: I tried to use Ctrl+Tab in the Session manager. It leads to an error message. Am I the only one?

Can you hit Ctrl+Alt+Tab confortably with a single hand? I hardly can... happy

Furthermore, if you use that combination to move forward, the alternative one to move backwards should be Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Tab.

BTW, Firefox allows Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+PageDown. I don't specially like it but it's another possibility.

What exactly is your problem with this shortcut? If I put my left hand on the keyboard for CTRL+Tab (pinky->CTRL, middle finger->Tab) my finger find naturally the keys for Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Tab.

I need to rotate my keyboard 45 degrees clockwise to achieve what you describe. I guess your keyboard looks like this:

No it does not. I didn't think that everybody has a special keyboard.
Which finger do you use to hit (CTRL+Tab)?

Thanks for the reminder, kalvaro. Alt+Left and Alt+Right will make it. (Please leave another reminder if I forget again...)

Just another reminder ;)

Using Version 8.3.0.4733 it's still not possible to switch between result tabs using ALT-LEFT/RIGHT or other keyboard shortcuts.

Or am I doing it wrong?

Yes, I forgot it, again. Sorry. There was a hospital stay in January, so...

I'll go and try to add shortcuts here.

Ah, and you can customize these shortcuts if you don't like Alt-Left/Right, in Tools > Preferences > Shortcuts > Data.
