Is there a shortcut key for switching between editor windows? I've looked through various compiled lists both on and off the forum, but no luck. Learned lots of other cool shortcuts though!

ps Obviously I can and do use the mouse for this. But I'm constantly jumping between windows during an editing phase that requires also using the mouse for other tasks .... so a shortcut would be luverly : )

YESSS! That's the ticket!!

Thanks Joro. Probably seems like a small thing, but I'm dealing with a 2000+ page doc and 5 different Scrivener panes -- this is hugely helpful.

Apologies if you already know this, but if you use split editors a lot, you may want to bind a shortcut to View > Editor Layout > Swap Editors, which as the name suggests, moves the left (top) editor to the right (bottom) and vice versa, taking the cursor with it. I use this a lot. It doesn't have a shortcut by default — I use cmd-opt-ctl-x.

Hope this is useful.
