Small question: keyboard shortcut to jump to active editor window

A very nice feature of IJ is that jumping between different windows has good keyboard support.   E.g. Alt-4 goes to the Run window, Alt-0 goes to messages, etc.

If I am in some Tool Window (e.g. Messages)  and want to jump back to the Active Editor window, is there a  keyboard shortcut way to do that (i.e. not using the dreaded mouse) ?

Hi, the ESC from the previous post-er did work.  I don't see the "." doing anything (for example when within the Run tool window). Did I misunderstand?

That's a technical problem of the forum software. What I really wrote was: "Just press <Escape>." But as I wrote it with a news client, the <Escape> has been swallowed somewhere. :)
