Subject:Keyboard focus not restored in XSD file windows Author:Jim Melton Date:29 Jun 2005 08:13 PM
I've searched this forum without seeing this problem reported.
If I am editing an XSD file in SS 6 and I change keyboard focus to another application window (whether with Alt-Tab or by clicking the mouse in that other window), when I return to SS6 (either through Alt-Tab or by mouse click), there is no keyboard focus at all. I have to use a mouse-click to give myself a keyboard focus in the XSD file that I am editing.
Similarly, changing from one window to another within SS 6 (using Ctrl-Tab or mouse-clicking on a tab) and then returning to the XSD window results in a complete absence of keyboard focus.
This is quite annoying and I hope it's just some sort of user preference or setting that I've gotten wrong.
Another very annoying thing (as long as I'm on the subject) is that, every time I open an XSD file in SS6, the window real estate is split evenly between the text view (on the bottom) and a graphical view (on the top). I virtually NEVER edit XML Schema files in the graphical view, strongly preferring the text view, so I really get annoyed by always having to manually close the graphical view in order to maximize the amount of the text window I can see.
Again, I hope it's just some user setting that I've gotten wrong.
Any advice about correcting these two annoyances will be gratefully received.
