Hot key for Next or Previous screens
Hope you will be doing well.
I need to configure Hot keys for Next and previous screens for entire system. For example if operator workplace is open with Graphic Display Aspect ,Amine Unit Screen#2, user may hit any key to call next (screen#3) or previous (Screen#1).
I could not find any way to configure such hot keys. Keeping in view your experience, if there exists any way to do this, please guide?
I shall be highly gratefull to you for the resolution.
Thanks & Regards,

Starting with 5.1 FP3 the "Navigate next" and "Navigate previous" global verbs and corresponding hot keys were added (refer to 5.1 FP3 release notes, 2PAA109051-513).
Have a look at the [Workplace Structure]Web System Workplace/Operator Workplace:Hot Keys aspect for an example.
NUM 4 and NUM 6 corresponds to left and right arrow keys on a regular keyboard.
Launch the Operator Workplace make some navigation then try hitting <ALT>-LEFT and <ALT>-RIGHT keys.
The "Navigate Next" and "Navigate Previous" keys I think are the "Back" and "Forward" keys on the workplace bar. This means they navigate through the history of displays that the operator has already viewed. If this is what you are looking for then Stefan's answer is correct.
However, if your displays are in a fixed order i.e. "Amine 1" <-> "Amine 2" <-> "Amine 3" and you always want to navigate through these 3 screens as previous and next then things are not so easy....
The problem is that 800xA does not know that "Amine Screen #1" is before "Screen #2" and that "Screen #3" is next. So you cannot set up a hot key to move between screens like you used to on the old Advant Operator Stations.
To get around this we normally use page links in the header of each display, but there is no hot key for these page links.
