With an element selected in the diagram window, pressing the Tab key should
navigate to the next element or node in the diagram.
Description (Entry 2):
online help should be updated to include this info.
*** Issue 80738 has been marked as a duplicate of this issue. ***
from issue 80738 that has been marked as a duplicate of this issue:
to select any elemnt on diagram user have to switch to project tree on first
step event if there are few elemnts and it can be easy to select them with TAB,
there is no way to select first elemnt two if diagram has focus and no elemnts

Broken focus traversal
Use tab/shift-tab to cycle between nodes
Use Shift Up/Down arrows to cycle between the edges of a node
Bring up context menu and, Find--Source/target element to navigate to the
source/target nodes of an edge.
navigation doesn't continue after edge selection:
- use shift+up to go to edge and try tab after the action, nothing happens
(if it will be within appropriate time to implement it's good to start order
from last selected element in this case, not from the beginning)
Once you are on an edge, to continue traversing with the nodes, you need to
either go to source node or the target node of the edge (context menu, find -
source/target), and then continue cycling through nodes using tab. The main
reason was to reduce the overhead of knowing from which direction you came to
ok, this one seems fixed, I'll file another one on a11y unexpected
behavior/usability because some links may have no visible direction, we have
also bug for reverse direction of activity edges and it may lead to much more
steps to return to initial element and may be continue tab order.
