Summary0020933: Issues with TAB order and Keyboard-only usage of MM 2024
Description1) Main panel TAB navigation: Preview:
a) TAB key fails to navigate to the Preview panel menus
b) TAB key fails to navigate to the Preview window (i.e. if lookup commands are enabled OR if field editing is enabled, there's no way to do so with the keyboard only)

2) Main panel TAB navigation: UI tabs
- Arrows don't navigate to '+' to add a new tab

3) Main panel TAB navigation - Playing Panel:
- there's no way to access the menu (ellipsis)

4) Main panel TAB navigation - Browser views:
a) no way to expand/collapse lists (e.g. list of Artists, list of albums, or Top Tracks)
b) No way to edit Auto-playlists: tab controls don't start in the Info panel, and don't go through each of the buttons (Edit, Play, Play shuffled, Overflow menu)

5) Devices panel
a) On devices panel: no way to 'Show all'
b) After selecting an entry, it's possible to switch between tabs (Summary, Sync list, Sync profile) but it doesn't seem possible to configure anything within the tabs

6) Auto-tag
a) TAB focus is out of order
b) No way to open/edit individual fields

7) Tag from Filename
a) Tab focus is out of order
b) Tab focus skips 'select all'
c) No way to edit individual fields

8) Organize files
- Tab focus is out of order

9) Properties
a) Artwork: Tab focus is out of order
b) Artwork: Tab focus skips Delete, Apply to all files, Browse, Lookup image
c) Custom: Tab focus is out of order
d) Custom: Tab focus skips Extended tag buttons (Add, Edit, Delete)

10) Configuration: in all portions of the UI containing a 'Gear' icon, it doesn't seem possible to select the gear to edit the settings

11) Optimization in order to save on tab presses: In Player, instead of using TAB all the time, perhaps TAB from seekbar, to Play controls, to ratings, to toggles, to Volume.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think that this should be fixed if it's low risk.

1-3 fixed in build 3023. In 2 Tab used for navigation, arrows change active tab and "+" button is in fact separate button for adding new tab, it would be problematic to implement it for arrows.
