In a Writer document, open File -> Properties, thene switch to Custom Properties tab. Press Add Property, which adds a new entry.
The focus should move to the Name field of the fresh entry, but it doesn't.
Observed using LO 22.214.171.124.alpha0+ (4ba1909f12b49f020195b5e767045340717ce6df), 126.96.36.199 / Ubuntu.
It works fine in 188.8.131.52.

"tdf#100922 Refactor Custom Properties page"
The code change should probably make the last visible entry get focused after this line:
The CreateNewLine() function focuses the newly created entry, but that isn't much relevant after the performance fix.
Proposed patch: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/115872
I think with the refactoring of the dialog even another problem arised (Bug 142396).
Andreas Heinisch committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#132667 - Grab focus on the last inserted property
It will be available in 7.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
