I'Is there a way to disable the "doc list" that is displayed when you switch between documents with CTRL+TAB?

I'm used to editplus, where hitting CTRL+TAB simply switches the document immediately.

This is useful to quickly switch between several documents and find the one you want by content instead of by name.

Settings > Preferences

Click the MISC. tab. Find the Document Switcher box on the left side. Uncheck Enable.

Your CTRL+TAB now just slides through documents.
