tab shortcuts kinda don't work

Reported by Aaron Falk | October 2nd, 2017 @ 06:05 PM

When I type ctl-shift-tab nothing happens. If I select "show previous tab" from the window menu, the correct thing happens. If I type ctl-tab from a viewer window tab, I can advance one tab only (to a message tab). If I type ctl-tab from a message tab I can't advance to the next tab.

MailMate Version 1.9.7 (5419)

    NB. I created the non-message viewer tabs by opening a message, then dragging it to the tab space on the message viewer window.

    I don't seem to be able to reproduce this. I can see that some times the first time I hit the key (in the mailboxes view) then the toolbar is activated. The second time it switches tab. This depends on which view in the window is currently focused. I'm not really sure there's anything I can do about that, but your issue also seems to be worse. Could you experiment a bit more to see if there is some kind of pattern? Does it make a difference where the window is focused and/or which layout your are using?

    Case 1: I tried creating new tabs by clicking on the '+' in a message viewer window. The keyboard shortcuts (fwd & bkwd) work fine. Doesn't seem to matter which layout I use.

    Case 2: If I open one or more messages in separate windows, then drag the tab from each of those windows to to be in a single multi-tabbed window, the keyboard commands don't work when viewing tabs with single messages.

    Case 3: If I'm viewing a tab with a message viewer window in it, the keyboard command will take me to the next tab. If the next tab is a message viewer, I can use the shortcut to go to the next tab. Once I hit a single message tab the shortcuts stop working.

    I can also add that hiding the toolbar also seems to affect the issue although it doesn't completely fix it.

    I also tried adding custom key bindings like these:

    "w" = "selectNextTab:";
    "q" = "selectPreviousTab:";

    They appear to always work. In other words, for some reason the standard tab keys seem to some times be swallowed by something in the MailMate GUI, but I don't know why this happens.
