Select tab to the left/right

Greetings,

Is there a way to map a key to move to the tab to the left or right of the current tab? I know there is previous and next, but this appears to move to the most recently used tabs.

The reason I want this is because I am used to mapping <alt>-j to move tab left and <alt>-k to move to the tab to the right.

Thanks!

Hi jzekeb,

Thanks for the post. It is possible to map a key to move to the previous or next tab in the row.

Here are the instructions to map a key to perform a menu function:
  1. Press the 'Map a Key...' button in the 'Terminal / Emulation / Mapped Keys' category of the Session Options dialog.
  2. Press the key combination to map.
  3. Select "Menu Function" from the Function menu.
  4. Select "MENU_TAB_NEXT" or "MENU_TAB_PREV" from the 'Menu Function' menu.
  5. Press OK.
Does this help you accomplish your goal?

Thanks for the quick reply. Excellent service.

That's what I tried, but unless I'm just totally missing something this is not the functionality I am looking for. The menu_tab_prev and next seem to move me through the tabs in the order that I last used them.

I want to be able to move to the tab directly to the left or right (or wrap) of the current tab.

Hi jzekeb,

You are welcome. I am glad to help.

What version of SecureCRT are you using?

Do you have CTRL+TAB switches to most recently used tabbed or tiled session enabled in the Terminal / Tabs/Tiling category of the Global Options dialog?

Hi Zeke,

Thanks for posting the confirmation that the issue is resolved and was just configuration related.
