Suggestion: Hotkey for swiching between group of windows

Asked by Petr Hlozek on 2011-06-24


it would be nice to have an hotkey for swithing only between several windows of one app. e.g. I have opened four gnome terminals, webbrowser, gedit, geany etc. If I'm at one terminal, it would be nice to have chance to switch to another terminal and don't care where I was before with ALT+TAB. I think Gnome 3 has the same function. It is ALT+` key. So when I use ALT+` I cas rotate only among windows related to one app.

Will be this possible in unity-2d?

Thank you!

You should be able to click on the icon twice in the Launcher to bring up the spread of all windows for that application. Then you can select one of them to switch to it.

It's not exactly the same as ALT+` but it's the closest thing we have got in unity-2d for now.

If that's not enough for you please file a bug requesting for that feature.
Thank you.
