This is a plugin with a bunch of actions to move tabs between editor splits and resize splits. Actions are added to "Main Menu -> Window -> Tab Shifter".
OSX shortcuts:
  • ctrl+alt+] - shift tab right
  • ctrl+alt+[ - shift tab left
  • ctrl+alt+P - shift tab up
  • ctrl+alt+; - shift tab down
  • alt+ctrl+[ - stretch split left
  • alt+ctrl+] - stretch split right
Other OS shortcuts:
  • alt+shift+] - shift tab right
  • alt+shift+[ - shift tab left
  • alt+shift+P - shift tab up
  • alt+shift+; - shift tab down
  • ctrl+alt+[ - stretch split left
  • ctrl+alt+] - stretch split right
To move focus between splits:
  • ctrl+alt+shift+] - right
  • ctrl+alt+shift+[ - left
  • ctrl+alt+shift+P - up
  • ctrl+alt+shift+; - down
  • ctrl+alt+. - recommended binding for built-in Goto Next Splitter action
These actions are similar to built-in "Move Right/Down" tab actions and essentially fix usability issues. If you like the idea, please vote for this issue on youtrack. For more details see GitHub page.
