Description Jesse Glick 2001-09-24 12:02:03 UTC
[dev sep 23] I'm sure this is known about, but after giving focus to
the Output Window, all other IDE keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl-2) fail
to work until the mouse is clicked elsewhere. This is terrible for
accessibility and keyboard navigability. If global keyboard shortcuts
cannot be kept enabled when the Output Window (term) is focussed, I
would prefer if the OW were _never_ automatically given keyboard
focus, i.e. you would have to click on it in order to give it focus.
Otherwise it is very unpleasant for keyboard users to ever compile

Fixed in main trunk. It was my fault, IDE shortcuts should work
correctly now..
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2001-09-25 11:29:02 UTC
Ctrl-2 does indeed work in [dev sep 24], thank you... not quite
resolved I think because posting menus with the OW selected does not
work. E.g. Alt-F does not open the File menu. Of course you can jump
to some other window such as the Explorer first, so this is not nearly
as important as that it is possible to "escape" using the KB. Making
P4, maybe P5 would be OK.
Comment 3 akemr 2001-09-25 13:17:53 UTC
Fixed in trunk.
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2001-09-26 13:50:07 UTC
It looks fine for me using [dev sep 25 evening]--thanks!
