The Audacious music player presents playlist as tabs. File explorers like caja or nautilus provide very easy and useful shortcuts to change between tabs: ALT+NUMBER. Audacious lacks this functionality and I'm wondering if there is a way to change current playlist using only keyboard?

There is Control-Tab and Control-Shift-Tab as in most applications that use tabs.

It works like a charm. Why there's nothing about this in the documentation or in the shortcuts settings - I don't know. – tomrozb Nov 22 '13 at 23:06

I've looked everywhere in the documentation (which seems to lack), and apparently Audacious does not do this, nor seems to be an alternative.
