Hotkey for Focusing between Notes

I once had hotkeys set up to switch between open notes. When I now wanted to use them again, I noticed that the hotkeys were converted to “Focus on tab group”.

This is not the same as focusing on another note. First, I thought it was broken and the hotkeys did nothing now (because I don’t use tab groups).
This is not the case. But apparently the functionality was changed and there is no way to bind the former function of “Focus on note/tab (above|below|left)” to a key combination.

Please re-add this functionality. This could be as a new hotkey functions or as restoring the former functionality of the hotkeys.

PS: I use sliding panes

this is not a bug. If you are using stacked tabs you need to look for hotkeys that change “tab” not “tab group”.


Thanks for the hint. The choice of migration was irritating to me. I probably was on the change logs when it changed (I hope). But I forgot I even had set up the hotkeys.
