Description V Stuart Foote 2016-09-12 13:58:09 UTC
In Impress the Properties Deck, the Layouts content panel is keyboard locked on entry.

STR
1. new Impress presentation
2. F6 cycle to Sidebar deck (default Properties deck get focus)
3. Cursor DOWN onto Slide content panel
4. Cursor DOWN onto Layouts content panel
5. TAB entry into the content panel
6. Cursor movements (D,R,L,U) to select a layout
7. Enter to select
7. Attempt to leave content panel...

HOW?

Unable to return to the Title of the Layouts content panel

Expected:

A TAB or Shift+TAB would position the focus of the Content panel back to its title. And allow movement from there to the Slide Content panel or to the Tab Bar.

Focus is keyboard trapped.

The Esc key returns focus to the Layouts panel title for me.

True. On a Windows build Version: 6.0.0.3 (x64)
Build ID: 64a0f66915f38c6217de274f0aa8e15618924765

With a selection made, the Escape will exit the Layouts selection widget back to the Panels title. And F10 will shift focus to the main menu File button. So the keyboard lock is resolved. 

But, believe with selection made in the Sidebar Deck, F6/<Shift>F6 or TAB/<Shift>TAB should advance out of the panel.

Sorry about the double post. My internet connection is often unreliable.

While in layout selection F6/<Shift>F6 advances out of the sidebar. F6 goes to a toolbar for me. Tab/<Shift>TAB do nothing.

On recent master/6.3 build, <F6> or <Shift><F6> is correctly advancing out of the "Layouts" content panel and out of the Sidebar, while <ESC> will exit cursor navigation back to the Panel title.  

No action from the <TAB> or <Shift><Tab>, but that is not an issue.

Behavior seems consistent. Unless Jim R. can pin down a fix, closing this => WFM
