Default jEdit keyboard shortcuts conflict with OS X?
Submitted by patricksurry on Wednesday, 18 April, 2012 - 16:28
Sorry, this feels like a stupid question, but can't find an obvious answer anywhere.

I've recently moved from Windows to Mac and brought jEdit with me, and been confused about why the 'go to recent buffer' key wasn't working (command-`). Eventually discovered it was because OS X already uses that binding for 'show-next-application-window'.

Is there any standard set of OS X keybindings for jEdit that avoid these kinds of conflicts, or do I need to roll my own? Seems like something lots of OS X users would run into?

Thanks.

Hi,
maybe You should try jEdit 5.0pre1 (daily build). It supports keymaps and is shipped with a "Mac OS X_keys" keymap.
 
Great, I've grabbed that and

Great, I've grabbed that and will play. It looks like the OS X keymap does still map command-` to 'go to recent buffer' which is already reserved, but sounds like it is going in the right direction. Are there not many OS X users?

Hi,

You could have a look at the jEdit Users Mailing List ( https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/jedit-users).

Also, it would be nice if You could submit a bug report at SourceForge .

In fact, testing it out, jEdit now seems to capture the command-` before Finder gets it. So I'm good to go!
