This has been a bug for a long time, but wondering if it will ever be fixed. On a Mac Ctrl+Tab should always switch to the adjacent tab on the right side (and Shift+Ctrl+Tab to the tab on the left side). However, Logos still uses some order I can't quite discern and jumps around the UI. Any chance we could get this fixed?

Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab navigate forward and backward through the list of tabs in the order they were most recently accessed.

It sounds like you want to use Shift+Cmd+] and Shift+Cmd+[

Ah that works, but is there a reason Logos does not follow Mac conventions on this?

It's been that way a long time. I don't know the historical reasons for the decision. We are usually reluctant to change the behavior of existing keyboard shortcuts, since it is very disruptive for users who are used to a behavior.

It seems like this is buggy in the Mac version. For example when cycling through the tabs in a panel I would always go from the last tab to the first. However often you cannot go from the first tab to the left using Shift+Cmd+[. Sometimes you can and other times you cannot. In addition, it seems like when a guide is open these shortcuts do not let you access a guide in a tab.
