Creating Keyboard Shortcuts for Switching Tabs in Titanium Studio

I’ve been using Titanium Studio quite a bit lately and noticed the default key mappings for switching tabs was not working for me.  Titanium Studio allows you to easily set your key bindings to anything.

Below are the steps I used to create my tab switching shortcuts.

Where is Key Mapping Preferences?

You can updated Titanium Studio’s key bindings by going to Titanium Studio then selecting the Preferences option as shown below.

Titanium Studio provides a large amount of preferences, you can tailor almost anything to your workflow.  The key binds are found under General then Keys.  If you have trouble finding this, just search for “keys” in the filter box.

Mapping Next Tab

Once in the Keys option menu, scroll until you see “Next Tab”, you can also filter by “tab” and it will help you find this option.  Select the “Next Tab” as shown in orange below. Then enter “Command Page Up” in the binding section highlighted in blue. Once completed you will need to press the “Apply” button for this option to be immediately available in Titanium Studio.

Mapping Previous Tab

Once in the Keys option menu, scroll until you see “Previous Tab”, you can also filter by “tab” and it will help you find this option.  Select the “Previous Tab” as shown in orange below. Then enter “Command Page Down” in the binding section highlighted in blue. Once completed you will need to press the “Apply” button for this option to be immediately available in Titanium Studio.

Shortcuts in Action…

Now I can switch between tabs just like in my Eclipse projects.
