Tabswitch request

I really like the conveniance of the tab switch plugin but wished that
it worked slightly differently.

Tab switch appears to only cycle you through the open editor tabs,
unfortunately I find that when I'm hopping through code I end out with
my maximum number of tabs open and find that all new files cycle through
the last opened tab and so when I try to ctr-tab back to the last file,
I don't actually go back to the previous file.

On the other hand ctrl-alt-left_arrow does take me back to the correct
file. Is it possible to make the tabswitch plugin itterate through that
same list somehow?

Did you try changing historyLimit option?
See http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/TabSwitchPlugin - "History limit option (TabSwitchApplicationComponent.historyLimit)".

Very nice, that looks like it's just what I want.

Thank you so much.

One thing that disturbs me but I doubt can be solved is this:
Sometimes I bring TabSwitch back up (I went back to Ctrl+Tab) and I regret
that I did, and then I have to bring the cursor back to the current (1st)
file and leave the Ctrl button. If I press escape, Windows interprets that
and opens the start menu...

What would be a solution for that?

Don't press Escape, press any other key (while Ctrl is still pressed) to get
rid of the tab switcher.

Yes, press almost any other key. From the plugin's page: "If you changed your mind and don't want to switch, press any key (except of course Ctrl, Shift, Tab), for example, an arrow". You can also click with a mouse somewhere.

Ctrl-Esc. Java/Swing app simply doesn't receive this keystroke.
