In Quartz Composer, you can press ⌘⇧E to bring up a composition's editor window, and ⌘⇧V to bring up a composition's viewer window. It would be handy to have similar shortcuts for Vuo.

Mockup by Team Vuo

We think the addition of the shift key makes these (essential) shortcuts trickier than they need to be. We propose:

  • When a composition editor window is focused, press ⌘R (i.e., the Run key) to switch to the corresponding VuoCompositionLoader
  • When VuoCompositionLoader is focused, press ⌘R to switch to the corresponding composition editor window

QC equivalent: 

⌘⇧E, ⌘⇧V
