It appears that all toolbar items are in the Tab order. What might make more sense is to have Tab move you amongst larger containers (like toolbars) and then have the arrow keys moving you within those items (which already appears to be the case).


Comments

Ideally:

  • F6 / Shift+F6 would treat all toolbars as a single container.
    • Press to go from the toolbars to the score, Mixer, Inspector, etc.
  • Tab / Shift+Tab would treat each toolbar as a separate container.
    • Press to go from one toolbar to another (e.g. File Operations to Note Input).
  • Left / Right would enable navigation within the current toolbar.
    • Press to go from one button to another (e.g. Open to Save).
