Is there a way to cycle through all windows on Apple with the Cmd+~ shortcut?

The new 2018a release only cycles through the last two windows with Cmd+~ instead of all open MATLAB windows as in previous releases (and most other applications for Mac OSX).

Ok, I was able to figure this out. Cmd+Shift+~ cycles through all open windows.

This is still broken in the 2018b-preRelease version. Cmd-` should cycle through all windows within an application, but instead it only cycles though the 2 most recent windows.

Hey, Mathworks. Is the move from Command+' to Command+Shift+' = Command+~ a BUG or a FEATURE?
In my opinion, it's a bug. Very awkward to do Command+~ !!!

Hi, Just wanted to confirm that I have the same issue. Cycling through all windows worked fine in R2017b. Best Regards

I agree that this is an annoying change after many years of Command+tilde cycling it is a hard habit to unlearn.

Incredibly annoying. And totally superfluously so.

Cmd+` is broken in Matlab because of this Java bug: https://bugs.java.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=JDK-8206392. The bug was fixed in Java 1.8.0_202. However, Matlab R2019a Update 1 uses Java 1.8.0_181-b13. Cmd+Shift+` is a workaround, but cycles windows in reverse order and is definitely less convenient.
