Re: omit current window on scroll in split-screen -> scroll through wind

I also regularly max out the number of windows, and even worse, I changed the maximum number of windows to 40 in the source before compiling (MAXWIN if I remember correctly). I found that renumbering the windows helps, grouping similar windows together so scrolling between isn't as long.

I've toyed with the idea of hacking the code to make 2 or 3 columns of windows in the window list, so you could scroll around easier. What would be really nice would be an auto-complete type of system. So say you have windows "abc" "apple" and "annotations".. you hit <cmd> " which brings up the window list, then you type A P <enter> and it selects the window "apple."

Thanks Michael.

Until I learn how to oirganise my life better, I constantly am up
against the max limit of windows on my screen session.  Ergo, I
spend a lot of time scrolling through irrelevant windows .
Now the `other' command is very useful but it would be much greater
if one could scroll backwards and forwards through the last n
selected screens.  Or possibly even select a scroll group that
I could <command> p and n through without becoming annoyed by the
other 25 windows :)

} Good idea, I'll implement this. (Or does somebody else object to this
}   proposal?)
