Description Jim Raykowski 2018-09-26 07:03:27 UTC
Similar to bug 115434 but occurs when sidebar is in float mode and focus is in the tab bar.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Open any multipage document
2) Open Sidebar using Menu > View > Sidebar or Ctrl+F5
3) Undock Sidebar using tab bar Menu > Undock or grab deck title bar and drag
4) Click in the document
5) Click on Properties deck button in floating sidebar tab bar
6) Press any of the following: page down/up, Ctrl+End, Ctrl+Home, backspace, delete, Ctrl+backspace, Ctrl+delete, hold up/down arrow key

Key input affects document view

Expected Results:
Key input does not affect document view when focus is in sidebar

Yup... had to play with the cursor down/up, but holding it it eventually starts to  reposition the document canvas even though focus remains on the sidebar.
