With the new semantic rendering of the toolbars all tools are A elements, and A elements are tabstops in the browser by default. In fact, this is desireable for accessibility reasons - because it allows disabled users to navigate to each tool.
At present pressing F10
in the editor content area would cause the toolbars to gain focus [similar to MS Word]. Based on your question, we extended the F10
shortcut to set the focus from the toolbar to the content area, and this functionality will appear in the coming editor update later this week. We hope that this approach would be useful to you.
