How Do I?
Traverse Editors

How do I traverse between editors in a comparison window using the keyboard?

To traverse between the text editors/folder trees and the file/folder selectors in a comparison window use:

Keyboard Shortcut:

  • Ctrl+Tab to traverse forward (counter clock-wise)
  • Ctrl+Shift+Tab to traverse backward (clock-wise)

To change the behavior of the Tab key to insert space instead of tab characters use the
File Comparison > Editing > Text Editors preference page options.
