Implemented

Photoshop: Please allow document toggling/switching in Photoshop using Command tilde

Dear Adobe Gripes #2879 & #1727

"Please allow document toggling in Photoshop. Command tilde works in all of
your other applications, so why do you make me use my stylus to switch
between open files?"

"Command-~ switches the active window in every other Mac app. Photoshop
doesn't even have this feature, let alone with a standard keystroke. Fix
this, it would be so easy."

This is now the default behavior in Photoshop CS4 and CS5 and Cmd + shift + ~ cycles through documents the opposite direction.

Note, however, that Photoshop used the shortcut Cmd + ~ to show the composite channel (RGB) long before OS X adapted it for window switching and many longtime users didn't like this change.

We added a way for users to decide which shortcuts they prefer using so both types of users would be happy.

"How hard is it, really, to implement the Apple+tilde window-switching
keyboard shortcut?"

Hi Jeffrey,

The Cmd + shift + ~ or Cmd + ~ to cycle through documents doesn't satisfy my need to switch between the same 2 documents. Let's say I have 6 opened documents, I don't want to cycle through, I want to toggle between the 2 I'm working in.

Is this feature planned? It is really frustrating not being able to do that and a brake to productivity.
