Moving from docked pane to editor and vice versa

In 2.6 there was a shorcut key, Ctrl + Tab, that moved focus between
the docked windows and the editor. In that way you could always get to
the open windows from the editor, even if the windows did not have any
shortcuts.
Now it is only possible with the windows that have defined a mnemonic,
which is always a number.

But even in the case of the window messages (mnemonic 0), it is easier
to press Ctrl + Tab than Alt + 0.

F12 moves the focus to the last active tool window. Esc moves it back to the
editor.

I realized that, and I think the feature was in 2.6 as well. But how
do I get to the window "Ant Build" or CVS without using the mouce? If
the window is open, but the last active window was eg. Debug, F12 will
bring me to that window.
With Ctrl + Tab, I could allways get to an open window using the
keyboard.

Yes, I also liked control-tab to switch between panels. No need to remember
keyboard shortcuts then.
The feature got lost with the change to jdk1.4 and was never found again :(

Options->Keymaps->Main Menu->Window

I removed/changed several mappings I don't use and mapped the ant window to
alt-2 and the cvs panel to alt-7.

No, I think it got lost when we got the split editor pane. Ctrl-Tab now
moves between two editors. But I agree with you, I'd also like to have
it back the way it worked before.

Luckily, the key combinations Alt-A and Alt-C are by default not mapped, so they seem natural shortcuts for the "Window | Ant Build" resp. the "Window | Cvs" commands.

Alt-C does, however, map to the top-level menu mnemonic for "Code". (For
some reason, the "Enter Keyboard Shortcut" popup doesn't alert you to
conflicts with top-level menu mnemonics.)
