The document switcher isn't fully usable on MacOS Lion because Lion has default global bindings for control-left/right/up/down.
I tried rebinding it to use alt-tab instead, but that had a few issues:
* The window only closes when control is released (it's hard-coded)
* The Alt-up/down command was passed through to the window below and altered the document. It shouldn't be possible to activate other commands while the switcher is active.
* Alt-tab seems to be the mac shortcut for navigating around widgets, so we probably shouldn't use it anyway.
up/down don't really matter, because that can be done with control-tab/control-shift-tab. But we need some way to switch between pads and documents. Maybe space would work?
And we should disable global activation of commands while the switcher window's open.
I made a new one that was better, but miguel requested to revert that back.
I don't think I want to maintain that thing anymore, because I would make it wrong.
I think we can close that - you put in the old one and took out the colors.
The original issue remains: "The document switcher isn't fully usable on MacOS Lion because Lion has default global bindings for control-left/right/up/down."
Confirmed. Also, the options to access the open Pads are accessible without using the mouse which kind of defeats the purpose of having a key binding.
