OS/Compiler notes: 

Hi again KDev team,

is any of you familiar with MSVC 6 and the way they use to jump between open documents? This only applies to MDI mode ( "Rahmenfenster-Modus" ) I think. Pressing ALT-F opens the "Fenster" (Window) menu, where 9 open documents are listed in, but they are sorted so that the most recent documents come first. These 9 windows are selectable with keys from 1-9. That means, the current documentview is accessible through ALT-F + 1, the view which was open before with ALT-F + 2, then ALT-F + 3 and so on. This way it is possible to jump between the files you are currently working on very easily. Ah, and ALT-F + 0 immediately presents a list of all open documents, sorted by filename. The Tabview-Mode in KDev has similar document shortcuts but they aren't as handy because they are not sorted, so you always keep looking at which position the document you want to edit is.
