Bug ID: 406969
Summary: The most useful tab navigation keyboard shortcuts do
Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
Reporter: oded at geek.co.il
Target Milestone: ---
As described in bug #406409 (comment 2), the "Move tab to the left/right"
shortcuts have not been working in the 19.04 pre-release since the beginning of
In the latest builds from KCI (4:19.04.0+p19.04+git20190425.1733-0), "next
tab", "previous tab" and "switch to last tab" have joined the fallen - now the
only way to switch tabs with the keyboard is the "last used tab" and its
reverse, the "switch to tab #" shortcuts, and "toggle between two tabs".
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Start Konsole with a default configuration
2. Create some tabs
3. Try to use the default keyboard shortcut to switch to the left or right tab
or move tab right or left.
The advertised effect should happen.

Neither of the last remaining vestiges of keyboard navigation are pretty
- "last used" order is pretty unpredictable if you have more than 3 tasks so it
is basically - let us search through all open tabs, in more or less random
order, until we find what we need - similar to how single desktop app switching
works in windows: useless waste of time when you have more than 3 windows.
- "switch to #" requires you to sacrifice (and remember) a whole lot of key
combinations and then to count the tabs in the tab-bar or just mush the keys
until you get where you want - slightly better than the above as it is now "let
us search through all open tabs, in order, and allow you to guess and skip
ahead". Also, no shortcut is set by default.
- "toggle between two tabs", well - the problem of using this as a general
navigation is spelled in its name, right? Also, it isn't set by default.
