So you bascially would like to be able to configure hotkey for
1.) iterate tabs
2.) switch to next tab
3.) switch to previous tab
optional.) assign hotkey for tab xy ?

That was the first I tried (years ago... and again every now and then). You can change the main menu (on MacOS at the top of the screen, not in the main window), the toolbar, the contents of the Downloads and LinkGrabber tabs, the tray menu, and the bottom bar/panel. That's a very big chunk of the UI which is configurable.

However, what you cannot change there is the tabbar holding the tab headers (buttons) named "Downloads" and "LinkGrabber". And you cannot set/change the keyboard shortcut(s) to switch to those tabs...

This is already implemented (ctrl-tab) as I learned today. However, it is very badly documented...
And I don't like the fixed, unchangeable shortcut ctrl-tab, since it's uncommon on MacOS. Such commands use the cmd-modifier, not ctrl.

2.) switch to next tab
That is the same as 1) IMHO - what do you think is the difference?

Quote:
3.) switch to previous tab
Also already implemented (ctrl-shft-tab). Worse than 1) because you're breaking your fingers trying to type this with the left hand only.

Yes please. cmd-1 for Downloads and cmd-2 for LinkGrabber. If you continue this enumeration you would then assume cmd-3 for Settings, but on MacOS you always activate settings with cmd-, (comma), and this IS ALREADY implemented. Yay...

@MarcS: Yes, iterate = same as next
So you need the ability to customize the shotcuts/hotkeys for those actions, right? and maybe assign direct hotkeys for certain tabs?

I'd like the ability to customize the hardcoded ctrl-tab and shft-ctrl-tab, yes.

But direct hotkeys for Downloads & LinkGrabber would be even better. Since you rarely change these once they're set, Advanced Settings would suffice:
"GraphicalUserInterfaceSetting: Shortcut for Downloads tab" (default value: meta pressed 1)
"GraphicalUserInterfaceSetting: Shortcut for LinkGrabber tab" (default value: meta pressed 2)

Default Meta-W should NOT close the main window

Yesterday I launched JD2, and while it was starting up I first managed to choose it with the (MacOS) cmd-tab process chooser, and then type cmd-W before JD2 finished launching.
It crashed.
So I tried to launch it again, only to get a bunch of error messages.
I ended up deleting its folder and re-installing JD2.

And today I dragged a link into the main window to activate the LinkGrabber *in the background*, then typed cmd-W to close the browser tab I started the drag from. However, JD2 happened to be the active process and not my browser, so the shortcut cmd-W closed the JD2 window...

1) How do you re-open the main JD2 window if you (accidentially) closed it?

2) NEVER, EVER do I want to close the main JD2 window. There's absolutely no reason to do this. Either you quit the app (with cmd-Q), or the window must stay open.

Please remove the hardcoded shortcut Meta-W (close Window) for the main window. Even better, remove the possibility to close that window at all.

Click on "JDownloader" text from the tray icon context menu

It's normal supported close window operation and JDownloader is still running/available via tray icon.

No hardcoded shortcut. That key simply sends the close window command to application. And closing the main window (minimize to tray) has been supported ever since.

The issue is that CMD+T doesn't open the window again like it's supposed to do
