Fix weird tab cycling in Sublime Text 2

by Zach in osx, windows, sublimetext2 | 2 min

By default, CTRL-TAB and SHIFT-CTRL-TAB don't operate in the same way that Google Chrome tab cycling does. For example, when you press CTRL-TAB it doesn't always cycle to the next open document. Here's how to restore normal tabbing functionality.


Access the settings for Key Bindings - User

This can be found under preferences.


Add the following

When your key bindings/keymap settings file opens up, add the following between the open and close brackets. { "keys": ["ctrl+tab"], "command": "next_view" }, { "keys": ["ctrl+shift+tab"], "command": "prev_view" }


Save and close the file

Since you've edited the Key Bindings - User preferences file, your settings will be saved even when you update Sublime.
