Node Focus lost after Alt+Tab

Post by mrjerz » Tue Mar 20, 2018 4:36 pm

When changing Windows with Alt+Tab, it seems the focus is always moved to the Styles Palette (when it is displayed).

What you must do:
1. Open the Styles Palette
2. Create a Node and select it
3. Switch Windows with Alt+Tab
4. Switch back to Cmap with Alt+Tab
5. Start Typing some text to edit your node
6. The Node is not selected anymore, but the styles palette -> editing the node is not possible

I am experiencing multiple Scenarios:
- either the focus returns to the Font drop down. When I start typing I change the font face of the node
- or the focus returns to the font size - when I start typing, letters appear in the font size field
- or the focus returns to the font color field - nothing happens when I type

The focus should return to the node, which was selected before switching the windows.

----
I use CmapTools 6.03 on Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.3
I have 8GB of RAM

Thx a lot and BR

Thanks for the videos... we'll look into it. On the machine I'm using I get a different behavior.
