Hotkey to move file tab to the left end (tab #1 space)


I commonly want to arrange the primary file I'm focused on into the Tab #1 position in pycharm.

For example, the view in #1, the form in #2 and the template in #3.

This has me dragging tabs around a fair amount. The tabs are too small and the mechanics of the click and drag are too precise given how often I need to do this.

It would be really helpful to have a way to force a selected file tab to move to position #1, 2 or otherwise. Is this currently possible, or could this be a feature?

It would be handy if this was something under keymap.



You can assign shortcuts for that in Keymap under Other --> Tabs.

Or is it necessary to actually move it instead of switching between tabs?
If yes, please feel free to submit a feature request about it to our issue tracker using the link and let us know if you need any help.


Ya, I saw the selection option, I want to be able to move the active tab to the left or right or to the far left or far right using a hot key. I'll add a feature request. Edit: added:
