Is there a keyboard shortcut in Lion for navigating through my open full screen Xcode projects? ⌘~ is not working.

Yeah, "cmd" + "~" doesn't switch between Spaces in Lion. It only switches between windows on a particular space. I wonder if it's a bug in Lion, or purposely designed that way. –  Paul Eccles Aug 8 '11 at 20:36

@PaulEccles Both Move focus to next window (in application) and Move focus to active or next window behaved the same way in Snow Leopard. –  Lauri Ranta Aug 9 '11 at 16:37

@PaulEccles IMO this is a bug (anything that doesn't behave as expected is a bug). cmd-~ moves focus between windows of the same application. It should obviously do this regardless of whether or not the windows are fullscreen. –  steve Aug 14 '12 at 17:47
    
Is there anything in Mavericks to solve this problem? –  Sudhir Oct 23 '13 at 16:18

You can switch between spaces using ctrl + left right arrow keys, but this can be used with all spaces not just Xcode

Indeed "ctrl" + "left right arrow" or "ctrl" + "number", are very useful in order to navigate through spaces, but what I'm missing is a shortcut imitating the "cmd" + "~" in full-screen open windows of the same app. –  bumblebee Aug 9 '11 at 7:18

You an also use Ctrl+Number to switch to a numbered desktop. However, full-screen apps are not given a number and so can't directly be used with this technique. However, if you like the approach, you could manually resize XCode to fill a desktop without actually using full-screen,
