Hello. Starting with the 4.1 branch it is no longer possible to <TAB>-key advance through custom fields created in the File > Properties > Custom Properties tab as it was in 4.0 and earlier. Instead, the <TAB> key now advances around the dialog from the tab's title through its buttons and back without ever entering the custom field box, and the only way to edit a field's type and value is with the mouse. I've confirmed this behaviour in 4.2 as well.
I spend up to half my waking hours using LO Writer and anything that forced me to reach for the mouse disrupts my work flow. I would greatly appreciate it if this regression were fixed. Thanks.
I can confirm the reported behaviour in 4.1.4 AND 220.127.116.11.
Have not used the Custom Properties though, so I do not know about the 3. era versions.
Can you post your working platform? My system is Opensuse 12.2 64.bit
Platform is Mageia 4 and confirmed on both x86 and x86_64 architectures.
LO 18.104.22.168 came down Mageia 4's update pipe yesterday, and though it's no surprise this bug persists in that release, I'm updating the version number above to match.
Giving this a bump to say the regression persists in 22.214.171.124 release.
Confirmed and added whiteboard and keyword.

With recent work on dinfdlg.hxx and dinfdlg.cxx for bug 85111, can you judge if restoring the missing keyboard navigation of this dialog would be a simple adjustment?
this one looks suspicious:

split out custom properties info page and convert to .ui
The CustomPropertiesWindow could be converted to something that inherits from
one of the new containers and remove a load of that custom positioning code but
for now just minimally retro-fit the existing manual position setting code of
the custom scrolling widget.
Caolán McNamara committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Resolves: fdo#75066 add TABSTOP and DIALOGCONTROL bits
It will be available in 4.4.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Original reporter here. I took 4.4.0 RC1 for a spin yesterday and can confirm that the issue is indeed fixed for me.
Thanks to everyone involved for getting this sorted. :-)
