Description Ulrik Nyman 2004-11-16 14:42:22 CET
Tabbing should move focus between the three text areas.

After having created a new transition one usually wants to use the "Edit
Transition" dialog to enter both Guard, Sync and Update. After having entered a
guard one expects that pressing tab will give focus to the Sync text area. This
is not the case.

The same might be said about the enter key.

But I do not agree that one expects tab to move to the next field and enter to
be equivalent to pressing ok: This is the case for single line fields, but not
for multiline text areas (see Swing user interface guidelines). Here tab and
enter should insert a tab character or a line break.

The behaviour you request can be achieved with ctrl-tab and ctrl-enter. Again,
see the Swing user interface guidelines.

Should I mark this bug INVALID or what should we do about it?

In 3.5 the meaning of TAB and control TAB has been reversed.
