How do you "alt-tab" between two windows in Kyma?

0 votes

On a mac I know you use CMD+` to cycle through the windows of an application. 

When I'm using Kyma I typically have 12 or more windows open and CMD+`cycles through all of them in order. It doesn't do what CMD+TAB does which allows you to rapidly flick back and forth between two applications. So if the two windows in Kyma that I want to switch between aren't adjacent to each other in the cycle order it's a real pain trying to switch between them.

Is there a way of doing that, so I can rapidly flick back and forth between two Kyma windows?

CMD+` cycles forward through the windows.

CMD+~ cycles backward through the windows.

The Windows menu lists the currently open Kyma windows (and there's a check mark next to the frontmost window).  You can select any window from that list to bring it to the front.

Yes that's true, but if the kyma windows are not adjacent to each other in the cycle order it's still not easy to switch between them.
Sorry, I missed the fact that you were asking about non-adjacent windows; the original answer has been edited to include the Windows menu which lets you jump to an arbitrary window and bring it to the front.

There's an awesome program called *CONTEXTS* on the mac that lets you use whatever combo you want to effect a per-window version of CMD-TAB, but I haven't tried it with my  Kyma machine to know whether it works with Kyma. However, I use it every day at work (because I prefer to work in contexts (slices of multiple apps) rather than the in-my-opinion massively broken way (switching between single apps/programs) that context-switching works these days).
