myBalsamiq interrupts browser shortcuts


I use browser shortcuts a lot to switch between tabs, on OSX that’s cmd-left and cmd-right, but when the Balsamiq tab is in focus no shortcuts work… and since it’s open quite a lot while I’m working that’s a lot of the time. It’s really annoying.

Anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution?


Hi @richmarr!

I am trying to reproduce your exact problem, could you answer a few questions for me?

  1. What browser are you using on OSX?
  2. Are you using any other application to customize your keyboard shortcuts?

The reason I ask the second question is because the keyboard shortcut for changing tabs on my mac is cmd+alt+right/left and it seems to work fine.

Looking forward to finding a solution for this! :smile:
