how to switch, using keyboard shortcuts

Post by calvinsun » Wed Mar 25, 2015 2:06 pm

I have searched the help PDF file and have found nothing about my question.

If I have multiple PDF files open in PDF-XChange viewer, how can I, if at all, switch between them using a keyboard shortcut? I know I can click on a tab, but it is a pain. I would rather use a keyboard shortcut, e.g. ALT- and some other key.

The help document mentions ALT-left and ALT-right, but they are doing strange things, for example opening up a recently closed file.

Thanks.

Hello calvinsun,

Welcome to the forum! Please try using the command Ctrl+Tab for next file and Shift+Ctrl+Tab for previous file.

Regards,
Radi

Thanks so much!!!! I appreciate it! Did I miss seeing it in the help file? If it is missing, can you ask them to put it in? I am sure others have the same issue. Thanks.

I've been using Ctrl+Tab and Shift+Ctrl+Tab to switch between open files, but when I use Shift+Ctrl+Tab to step through several files, the active tab seems to jump forward when I release the Shift+Ctrl keys.

The sequence goes like this:

Shift+Ctrl keys down (on tab 4 of 5)
Tab (switch to tab 3 of 5)
Tab (switch to tab 2 of 5)
Tab (switch to tab 1 of 5)
Shift+Ctrl keys up (back to tab 2 of 5)

Seems like a bug. I'm using v2.5 Build 320.0. Any suggestions?

djournal,

I am afraid that the Viewer (version 2.5) is no longer under development. The Editor (the Viewer's successor) no longer shows this issue.

You can download the latest Editor installer here: http://www.tracker-software.com/PDFXVE6.zip

Cheers!
