[wingide-users] Managing many files in the editor

Try Ctrl-Tab and Ctrl-Shift-Tab.  These now (thanks Wingware!) work similarly to Windows Alt-Tab in that you go forward and backward through the most recently viewed tabs.

If you don't know about Ctrl-PgUp and Ctrl-PgDown, they are also useful.  They move up and down a tab without needing to use the mouse.

For your reference, one or both of these work on many different applications, at least in Windows.

Subject: [wingide-users] Managing many files in the editor

I find myself working with many files on a small screen at the  
moment, such that not all editor tabs are visible at any one moment.  
The only way I could find to get at a file whose tab is not visible  
is cycling through all the files using the small arrows. As Murphy's  
law requires, the file I want is always at the other end...

Is there a more convenient way to access files, e.g. by keyboard  
command + name or from some popup window? Or is there a way to  
rearrange the open files such as the ones between I switch often are  
closer together?

Thanks in advance,
