This request is to assign Cmd-# keys to the windows as a shortcut to switch to the window. So, the first window is Cmd-1, the next window is Cmd-2, etc. See Terminal for an example. Currently the Cmd-# keys don't do anything (at least in 10.2).
Great idea but the Window menu sorts them alphabetically which I found annoying, I would prefer to keep them in order of appearance, no sort, last opened one added at the end. Probably must fill a new bug. What happens if you remove window 2 from 1,2,3 does 3 becomes Cmd-2, etc ? I suppose, most programs are doing that.
In terminal, all the windows keep their numbers for life. If you close one, the next one you open get the lowest free number.
I would really like to see this implemented ...
Please, qwerty keyboarded guys, do think about other keyboard layouts (azerty) : your key shortcuts sometimes are very long to type on a french keyboard or worse, impossible to reach.
#4 agrred (a bit like no international support in Darwin). But Can easly be made easier ofr us where shift is no option to get the numbers : think about using the numeric keypad.
It's a nice concept, but there do seem to be problems with it. Keyboard layouts, deciding how windows keep their order, etc. This makes more sense for tabs and to keep in line with other keyboard layouts, should potentially use the F keys. Most apps use those commands for bookmarks however. I'm suggesting WONTFIX and will do so in a bit if no one has objections. Targeting for Future however, to keep discussion open.
Ping. Bryner, are you still looking at this? I'm CCing Wevah and Mike to look at this and possibly WONTFIX it.
There's a system-wide shortcut for switching between windows already, cmd-`, and the implementation/tracking which window is which number/keeping it simple and logical for the user seems like a nightmare. I second the WONTFIX.
i'd rather do cmd-# for bookmark bar items, like safari.
