For use in Sidebar the Slide Transitions panel was converted to .UI with
Unfortunately we can not enter the Sidebar Slide Transition Content panel from the Tab bar with keyboard only. An a11y and UX issue.
GUI is correct, as you can mouse click on Slide Transition tab and then on a slide transition--which launches a preview-- and returns focus to the content panel (see bug 84417). And once in the content panel have the normal mix of .UI keyboard movement <tab>/<shift><tab> and <cursor U,D> to navigate the .UI GTKFrame, GTKBox, GTKList elements correctly.
Where there is a problem is that with keyboard only <F6> movement onto the Sidebar Tabs, and <cursor U,D> for selection of the Slide Transition tab to activate the content panel(s)--only the Title "Slide Transition" receives focus.
Can not then drop down from the title into the content panel(s) with keyboard movements--it should be done with a <Tab>.
Interesting that if already in the content panel, from mouse movement and click, <Esc> correctly exits the panel back to the title. But can not reenter panel with <Tab>.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Impress w/Sidebar view active
2. mouse click on "Slide Transition" Tab
3. click on a slide transition in the list "Apply to selected slides" for preview
4. <Esc> to exit content panel back to Title
5. a <Tab> should reenter and focus on the transitions list, but it goes some where else?
6. <Esc> returns focus to Slide Transition Title
Steps 1-4 of these STR can be done keyboard only by cycling with <F6> to the Sidebar Tab, and cursor <U,D> to the Slide Transition Tab and <Enter>
Similar behavior with the Custom Animation Tab conversion to .UI

@Stuart: This likely should be closed as bug 100898 is about the same issue but for all tabs/decks.

Sure, reasonable to do so...
