Feature request: Single key to open next PDF in folder


Feature request: I would like SumatraPDF to work in a similar way to most graphics viewers, where you can hit, for example, the Space key to close the current file and instantly open the next file in a folder.

Is there a way to configure SumatraPDF to allow the Space key to (1) Close the current PDF, and (2) Open the next PDF in the same folder, with the default view settings? I find myself constantly hitting the space key and expecting the next PDF to open, because most of my folders consist of 50% PDF and 50% mixture of PNG and JPG.

At least the Esc key is consistent; I have SumatraPDF configured so that Esc closes the PDF, much in the same way that Esc closes PNG and JPG files in my various graphics viewers.

Thank you.


From manual

                       space   scroll by screen 
    <Ctrl> + <Shift> + Right   open next document in the directory 
    <Ctrl> + <Shift> + Left    open previous document in the directory 

there are no combined controls for tabs however if you use a single un-tabbed session the one file view window will close current and open next (or previous)

You can have different session start-ups so that one shortcut works single file at a time (as above) whilst a different start works with tabs etc.

See countless other requests to remap keys but short answer to re-assigning space bar is NO, you would need to use a 3rd party key mapper (at your own risk )
