[DOGFOOD] Using the Tab key kills the caret and selection
Start the editor. Click to place the caret. Type something -- characters are inserted fine and caret moves. Press the tab key: Some space is inserted, and you can type more characters, but the caret has disappeared and you can't click anywhere else to move the caret or make a selection. Not sure who to assign this to.
charlie, I assume this is in HTML editor only? not plaintext?
I just looked at this. The problem is that tab key causes focus to move from the editor document, which in turn turns off the selection. There seem to be two problems; first, the editor should intercept the tab key, if it's not an edit field. Second, the tab handling code should not move the selection away from the editor, because there is no other widget in the window that can have focus (as far as I can see).
Correct. I don't see the problem in plain text editor.
