Shortcut alt + cmd + A ctrl + A ctrl + cmd + A - - - -

* Limitations (for now):

Switch between two Artboards
  • Switch between two Artboards (opt + cmd + a), can be done infinitely.
  • only works within one document (the history is overwritten when opening another document / works with the current used document only).
Go Backwards
  • Works, but the opposite way is currently not possible.
  • only works within one document at the moment due to a bug. On any additionally opened there is a small bug but the caommand mostly works.

Feel free to create an issue if something does not work probably or if you have a feature request.
