Cmd-1..n are handy for changing and focusing the different navigator tabs so I don't have to take my fingers off the keyboard, but is there a shortcut for giving the focus back to the editor after focusing, say, the Project navigator with Cmd-1?


Aw crud, there are all sorts of "move focus to" commands in the Navigate menu that I somehow missed earlier... The combo for "Move Focus to Editor..." is Cmd-J, for example.


I don't have X-Code 4 installed, but Command + ~ will cycle through windows inside an application. So long as it qualifies as a window, I imagine that'd be what you need.

    I'd play around with Command+Option+~ etc. The tilde on a Finnish keyboard is opposite the standard US English one, and it appears to need a modifier to access. – David Metcalfe Jun 6 '11 at 16:53

    Xcode 4 only has one window (by default), so Cmd-` wouldn't have done anything. – Matthew Frederick Jun 7 '11 at 11:55
