Is there any way to change windows and tabs with a keyboard shortcut in Flash CS5 on Mac OS X?

I'm having the same problem on the Mac. Argh... quite frustrating. Surely there must be a shortcut. – Simon East May 28 '11 at 2:48

Aha, found it.

+ ` to cycle forwards.

+ Shift + ` to cycle backwards.

Nice one Simon! I couldn't find that anywhere in the docs or menu Shortcuts area :-) – Ben Wise Jun 6 '11 at 16:49

I believe Ctrl + Tab should work for moving to the next tab, and Ctrl + Shift + Tab for moving to the previous tab.

Thanks a lot Gareth but is that Windows only? Can't get it to work on OSX! – Ben Wise Apr 10 '11 at 14:24
Sorry, it wasn't clear from your question if you were using Windows or Mac OS X. How about ⌘ + Tab on your Mac? – 8088 Apr 10 '11 at 14:32
Hi Gareth no that's the OS app switcher. I updated question title to be clearer. Your score is currently 1337, LEET! – Ben Wise Apr 11 '11 at 11:59
