Photoshop: Switching Tabs in Wrong Order || Shortcut - Roundabout

Adobe Photoshop CS5 switches through tabs in the wrong order. If a tab is to the left, meaning 'BEFORE' the current one, ctrl+shift+tab should switch to that one. If a tab is to the right, meaning 'AFTER' the current tab, ctrl+tab should switch to that one. Apparently Adobe is becoming like Microsoft, over-encumbered by its own weight, cumbersome, and clumsy. Think Google or Apple - light on your toes, dance.
Shortcut keys = a method of initiating a shortcut. Not a method of initiating a roundabout path of having your windows, tabs, applications rearranged at the whim of a program because of poor marketing. n00bs.

Yes, the original poster was rude here, but 7 years?

I work with image sequences and when the order's wrong it means I can't see what I'm doing. 

It's rarely an issue on MacOS as they usually come up in alphabetical order anyway (though it's frustrating when they don't),  and I number my sequences with leading zeros, but now I'm on Windows the images appear in unpredictable orders. I thought I'd be able to work around that by rearranging the tabs, but rearranging the tabs doesn't seem to affect the cycling order.

It's hard to see how this is anything other than a bug. If it doesn't affect the cycling order does the ability to rearrange tabs serve any function at all?

Just ran into this issue as well. When using Actions, this is especially annoying as well because "Select Next Document" now is worthless because of this bug.

I found out this feature was added in CS4 more than 10 years ago. But here today in the year 2019, this most basic bug still exists, at least in the Windows.
Make 3 documents. Rearrange any of their tabs around. Try Ctrl+Tab to cycle through them and watch as you jump around the order the tabs were in before and left to right as one would expect.
In all my years working with Photoshop, I have always avoided rearranging tabs because of this bug. Because I know that unlike in any other program that features tabs you can cycle through, if I try to tab to the next open document, it's not going to go to the one to the right of the one I have selected, it's going to move to some random one I may have moved hours or days ago and it gets confusing.
In fact, InDesign also has this peculiar behavior! Only Illustrator gets it right, which only makes this more confusing and not worth using outside of the most basic scenarios.

I hope this feature can finally get fixed. It's probably ruined a generation of designers trained to work around this bug.

Actually that was 8 years ago and they never did take a look because ... lol, like I had mentioned it went from CS all the way to CC. Kind of funny if you think about it, developers were so lazy that they still couldn't fix it even in CC... even though other programs don't have this issue ;)

Assuming Mr. Tranberry has other things to do rather than facilitate the fixing of this rather egregious bug, then one can't help but wonder why no one else with the power to do so hasn't had a go at it at some point over the last decade. Working around this "quirk" has consumed dozens of hours of my time over the last number of years, and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Understanding there are likely countless others who endure the same benefit-less waste of significant time for years on end, I can only imagine it due to some stubborn dysfunction brought out by the their response to the OP's tone when they first became aware of the issue. If this post is received in a similar manner, & if it is received at all, then so be it. It's beyond unfortunate that this issue still persists, and a downright shame that they've cast a blind eye to those who depend upon their expertise and accountability.

I complained about this easily reproducible bug in this thread three years ago. Still not fixed. Absolutely ridiculous.
