Shortcut for focusing on specific panes

Reported by Seth herr | October 4th, 2018 @ 05:32 PM

After I search for a message, to open the message I want to open I have to press tab a whole bunch of times - first to get to mailbox, and then to get through details, save, and the close button.

I would really like it if I could press control+1 to focus on the mailboxes pane, control+2 to focus on the list pane, etc - similar to how navigation between panes works in sublime text.

It's entirely possible that this functionality exists somehow and I don't know how to access it. I read through the keybindings files and searched for tickets and couldn't find it. If it is the case that the functionality exists, I think it would benefit from some additional visibility.

    Low level, there's a custom key binding to focus a specific view:

    "m" = ( "makeFirstResponder:", "mainOutline" );

    You are right that some systematic (built-in) way of explicitly chancing focus would be useful.
