In 7.5.1, where you can have all open chats in one window - make it possible to switch between the different chats by using ctrl+tab (standard feature actually in all other software...).
UPDATE - This feature is now part of Sametime 8.0.  This idea is being marked as "Complete".

Since Sametime 8.0 is being release tomorrow (probably), let's wait to see "if" they have addressed this...

Let's not go there about ctrl-tab being a "standard feature"... I initially had a big rant to post here but I won't. IBM has stated at { Link } that they believe CTRL-TAB in Notes 8.0 should move a user out of a rich text field.

But there is a lot of inconsistency here. In Notes 8.0 integrated chat (which uses some other-than-gold port of the Sametime 7.5.1 code), ctrl-tab actually does work. But this feature isn't in the 7.5.1 connect client. The other inconsistency is that CTRL-TAB doesn't work for other Notes 8 windows except for the chat windows. Now we could argue semantics here with the Sametime plugin not "really" being Notes. But at the same time, one team at IBM (Notes 8 dev) has decided to "revert" to the original intent of CTRL-TAB whild another team (Sametime dev) has chosen to add the switching capability to their product.

Update - the Sametime 8.0 client contains the CTRL-TAB functionality!

Bruce, you could probably close this as completed... ;)
