Description Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2018-04-29 19:55:51 UTC
Approximately since this dialog was “welded” (I didn’t bisect this; it’s just when I first observed this), now it’s not possible to focus the character grid by Tabbing your way to it. The only way to focus it is by clicking one of its characters; then, you’re able to use the arrow keys (←, →, ↑, ↓) to change the selected character.

If the character grid is not focused, the glyph preview at the right side doesn’t change (this is another bug that is already reproducible in 6.0.x).
