How to use "Tab" and other shortcuts..
Just what the title says.. Im wondering, how do you guys manage to use those shortcuts.. many many times they just dont work.. particulary "tab" shortcut.
Will this be fixed in later gimp versions, or its just as good as it can get?

RE: How to use "Tab" and other shortcuts..
you press "windows" then you press "hide docks" (shortcut - TAB)
It hides tabs.. so after that i can press TAB button as much as i like, it works..

How can i be even more specific if its already short question..

Well, it does what it says on the tin here, Windows menu -> Hide Docks -> tab
Just a guess, but is the Gimp window in focus when you press the tab key and nothing happens. Using the Windows menu first will certainly make the window active.

Other keyboard shortcuts, I do not really use that many, there being a lot of context menus these days but the ones I do use on a regular basis work fine.
Ctrl-j for shrink-wrap, ctrl-z to back of one operation, certainly x to swap fg-bg colours and + and - keys to zoom in and out.
