Hotkeys for swapping panes up, right, left, left most, etc

Hotkeys for swapping panes up, right, left, left most, etc.

Use case or problem:

For example in Andy mode:

And desired keyboard-only (mouseless) controllability in general.
Perhaps, corresponding commands could be also utilized by plugins.

Proposed solution:

Add customizable hotkeys and palette commands:

  • “Swap pane left”
  • “Swap pane left most”
  • “Swap pane right”
  • “Swap pane down”
  • etc

Works e.g. in EmEditor (tabbed interface): EmEditor Command Reference: Move Next command

Current workaround:

Drag by mouse. In some cases it is not reliable/precise enough and unlike hotkeys, cannot be easily automated in Keyboard Maestro or AutoHotkey.

I found one older almost equivalent request Hotkey to move a pane to the left, right, bottom, top (or even corners)
IMHO they could be merged.
