The other day, I wrote about
ace-window, a really nice way of quickly jumping from one window to another. I used the suggested key sequence 【Meta+p】 to trigger it so it seemed pretty fast.
After using it for a while, I noticed that it didn't work with
ibuffer uses 【Meta+p】 to move through filters. Since I very often have an
ibuffer buffer open, I decided to change the triggering key sequence.
One further thing you should know about
ace-window is that if there are only two windows, it simply switches to the window that doesn't have focus (exactly as if you had typed 【Ctrl+x o】). I remembered that Mathias Dahl had commented that he used 【F1】 and 【F2】 to move between windows because it was a single key and very quick so I decided to use a function key. I chose 【F11】 because I find it easy to reach. Now things are even better. If I have two windows open I can switch between them with 【F11】 and if there are more than two windows,
ace-window gets triggered with the same key. A definite win.
