Running 5.0 SR4 on Mac 10.8.2

When I (press Cmd-G and) type a reference to browse within a book the focus remains on the reference box with the effect being that you can't navigate the book with the keyboard. I keep having to use my mouse Surprise

If that is the intended behaviour, it would be nice to be able to tab or escape out of the box to then navigate with keyboard...

 

 

ps. loving all the keyboard shortcuts in L5, are there new ones, or did I just never discover them all in L4? Smile

Not sure if this is related or not; when using Bible Facts the focus also goes to the search box after the page has loaded. Now if I click on a particular link to another bible facts page it loads for about half a second and then goes back by itself.

In this screenshot below, the event "Melchizedek blesses Abram" loads and you can see the focus is in search box, when I click the link "Melchizedek" it loads and then goes back by itself to this page by itself. For whatever reason, it doesn't happen if I click the page first so that the focus goes off the search page, and it doesn't happen if I click Abraham or King of Sodom Huh?

 

Edit: I just noticed that if I move the focus off the search box and click Melchizedek the page loads correctly, but then if I click anywhere in the left bar it goes back to the original page.

I will create a case for this issue.

I am not able to reproduce this issue.  Are you still seeing this occur?

Thanks Tonya! I also can't reproduce the second issue anymore, I'll post again if something makes it happen again...

This will be fixed in 5.0b RC 1 for beta users, and in general when 5.0b ships to the stable channel. Pressing the tab key on Mac will move the focus out of the reference box.
