Like you, I was hard-coded to Cmd-tab. I know LiveCode has its own
shortcuts for changing tools but they're on the wrong side of the
keyboard for me and I never could get used to them. They're difficult to
type, my right hand is usually on the mouse.
So I wrote a frontscript that traps Control-tab and changes tools. It's
inserted as part of my developer library that launches via a plugin
every time the IDE starts up. That was easier for me, I only had to
re-learn where my left thumb should go. Been using it since MetaCard.
You can't change the Cmd-tab shortcut, the OS intercepts it before
LiveCode even knows it happened. But you can control-tab instead.
