R for R 4.0.2 GUI 1.72 Catalina build (7847)

Oops, I was going off muscle memory - I see that Quartz:Forward and Back are set to "⌘ tab" and "⌘⇧ tab"  (which can't do anything as they're captured by the app switcher).

What are you seeing as the keys for Quartz:Forward and Quartz:Back?

Playing around, ⌘ left-arrow works to go back one graph, but only one time, and ⌘ right arrow doesn't do anything.

Clicking the actual menu items when the quartz window contains 2 graphs, back take me back, but then forward doesn't take me forward...
