Keyboard shortcut to jump back to editor pane from anywhere.

I'm a keyboard-centric developer and want to eliminate any need to reach for the mouse for development tasks, but have not found a clear way to get the focus back on the editor pane.

I found the shortcut to jump to the editor from the project pane (cmd+down arrow), but this only works for opening a new file.  I also found F12, which takes you back to the previous tool, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for either.

Is there a universal shortcut to "take me back to the editor window", regardless if I'm looking at the todo, changes, project structure, etc. 

Thanks,

-Roberto.

Yep, that's it!  Where is it documented?  I may have missed it, but I didn't see it in the default keymap PDF.

Thanks!
