Switching tabs does not work on Mac

Will somebody please please PLEASE update this with the correct keyboard shortcut for switching between multiple tabs in the main window on Mac OS X 10.6+? I have tried:

  • Cmd+Option+PgUp/Down
  • Ctrl+Option+PgUp/Down
  • Ctrl+PgUp/Down
  • Cmd+PgUp/Down
  • Cmd+Option+Left/Right Arrow
  • etc. etc.

NOTHING seems to be working.


Well, you must not have tried Ctrl-Cmd-PgUp/Down, or the notebook didn't have keyboard focus when you tried.

Thank you, that does work. Kind of. I realize this isn't a help forum or a bug/issue tracker, but in the interest of documentation, I'd like to point out that if one of the tabs is a "Budget:" tab, then the tab switching ceases to work as soon as the budget tab gains focus. I tried tabbing to change focus to every element I could possibly get to, but as far as I can tell, there is no way to tab away from the Budget tab without using the mouse. VERY frustrating. Where can I report this as a bug? Or is there a solution I am unaware of?

Thanks to Fell for the links to references, I was able to poke around in the header files and solve my issue here: Kenahoo (talk)
