Typically in OSX when you want to switch from one app to another you can hold down the "apple" or "command" key and hit tab. This brings up a list of icons for all the currently running applications. However in Novashell it looks like something is preventing that command-tab key combo from working.

I need this because say for instance you are in the editor and you want to edit a lua file - you click "edit" and nothing happens. Behind the scenes osx opens an editor, but you cannot get to it if you are in fullscreen mode. I tried the command-tab but tab just made the panels go away

Yes I could j ust switch back to window mode but then I have to click, find the window, click edit, then click back whereas command tab lets you quickly switch...
