Switching Tabs in Textmate

The most recent update of Textmate, version 1.5.10, made one major change which remapped the keys for switching tabs to ‘cmd-shift-[‘ and ‘cmd-shift-]’, while this makes TextMate behave the same as most other OSX apps, it’s a little annoying if you’re used to the old shortcuts.

To get the old behavior back, you can customize TextMate’s shortcuts by opening ‘System Preferences’, choosing ‘Keyboard’, and then switching to the ‘Keyboard Shortcuts’ tab. If you then select ‘Application Shorcuts’ you can add an override for TextMate’s ‘Next File Tab’ and ‘Previous File Tab’.
