I have many ways to switch between active work areas:
ctrl-a, n when using
ctrl-arrow when using Spaces;
cmd-tab when using normal OS X application switching;
ctrl-tab when using my Windows VM. These can get confusing, and I spend a certain amount of time swapping between applications and desktops and virtual terminals fruitlessly.
I am kind of sick of sitting and typing for so much of the day.
WordPress and its plugins, though updated, do not think that they are.
