Keyboard shortcut for recent Tab
When editing an email in gmail, I keep selecting command+shiift+left arrow key, expecting to select the previous works in the text edit area (system editing shortcuts?). This ends up shifting the focus to a different (recent?) tab. It also happens to select the text as well... Is this a bug? Or can I just change the keyboard shortcuts in Vivaldi settings to get rid of this conflict (to be clear I don't want cmd+shift+left arrow key to switch tabs)?
Your first post, so welcome!
What Vivaldi version are you using? I'm on Windows, not Mac, but this sounds like a bug that was fixed a few developer snapshots back. If you're not using it, TP3 was just released 2 days ago and you should definitely update, as their have been numerous bug fixe3s and enhancements since TP2.
I'm on Vivaldi 184.108.40.206 (Developer Build) and it still does it. I'll install TP3 to see if there's any difference there. Late 2010 MBA, OSX 10.3.3.
Just to confirm, on my MBA now running TP3, Shift-Cmd-Left Arrow still cycles to previous tab as well as selecting to the beginning of the line. I'll try trashing the app completely and re-installing to see if that makes any difference next time I have to use Shift-Cmd-Left Arrow
Not sure of whether I have TP3 or not. How do I know?
Here's the vivaldi://about data-
Vivaldi 220.127.116.11 (Developer Build)
OS Mac OS X
Blink 537.36 (@c4fc1926ad569ca9bd622e77402c6afb91ac4ce4)
Yes, that's TP3. It followed immediately after snapshot 18.104.22.168, but is labelled TP3 on the download site. Do you still have the Shift-Cmd-Left Arrow taking you to the previous tab as well as doing what it should do, selecting to the beginning of the line? It does for me. I haven't yet had time to trash my current installation with its preference and other files so as to reload from scratch to see if it's different, but I will when I have a moment.
I trashed Vivaldi and re-installed it.
Issues (cmd+shift+left/right changes tab and selects the text till beginning/end of line) still happens for most TextEdits.
For Gmail's compose text edit behaviour is different now (cmd+shift+left/right changes tab, no selection happens).
I don't use gmail, so don't know about that, but that just makes it worse. In other text editing, in this forum for instance, Shift-Cmd-Left Arrow still selects to the beginning of the line and opens the previous tab, but an immediate Cmd-Right Arrow takes you back to what you were editing with the selection still in place, so it's a nuisance, but not so bad as it not doing the selecting. I've never had to try Shift-Cmd-Right Arrow.
