When I open more than one document in BBEdit, a Currently Open Documents pane is shown. I can change the selection in the pane (and change the document shown in the editor pane) with the mouse pointer. Can I change the selection in the pane with a keyboard shortcut?

Check in the menubar -> View -> Previous Document/Next Document. The shortcut for Previous Document seems to be altcmd[ and for Next Document altcmd] on an US-keyboard.

On my (german) keyboard I use altcmd5 and altcmd6 though.

  • You're right. It is alt-cmd-[ and alt-cmd-] on my US keyboard. (I changed them to shift-cmd-[ and shift-cmd-] for consistency with apps that use tabs.) Dec 8, 2015 at 23:13
