Is there a hotkey to switch between tabs in Gedit? Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+PageUp are not working. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.

    ctrl+alt+pageup and ctrl+alt+pagedown seems working – mateen Jan 28 '15 at 6:45

here is a plugin here for gedit to Switch between tabs using Ctrl-Tab / Ctrl-Shift-Tab. Control Your Tabs There are also similar plugins on the same page. http://live.gnome.org/Gedit/Plugins


Gedit has this functionality natively, no need for a plugin. Try the following:

  • Next tab CtrlAltPageDown
  • Previous tab CtrlAltPageUp

    These shortcuts are inconsistent with virtually all other applications on Linux, the norm is to use Ctrl+PageUp/PageDown – nedim Dec 15 '16 at 8:26

    @nedim: I didn't write Gedit, and I agree completely with you. – dotancohen Dec 15 '16 at 8:28
  • @nedim, I agree. There might be a historical reason Ctrl+PageUp/Down has already a meaning in gedit (Home/End). hamwaves.com/gedit/en/#cursor-navigation – alfC Jan 12 '18 at 2:21
