Shortcut for result tabs?

kalvaro posted 4 years ago in General
When running multiple SQL statements, is there a keyboard shortcut to switch between result tabs?
ansgar posted 4 years ago
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:

Microsoft Natural Keyboard

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?

ansgar posted 11 months ago
Yes, I forgot it, again. Sorry. There was a hospital stay in January, so...

I'll go and try to add shortcuts here.

Oh, didn't know. GET WELL SOON, all the best!

Done in r4734. Enjoy.

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