      Description of the issue

      When you click on a field and then format it with the Inspector, the arrow keys do not move the text box. You have to click on the layout and reselect the text box. You and now move it with the arrow keys.

      Expected result

      You should not have to click in the layout and reselect the text box to move it with the arrow keys.

          Thank you for your post.

          This occurs on Mac OS X 10.5.8, Mac OS X 10.6.4, Windows XP and Windows Vista.  After selecting a layout in one window, if you switch to the Inspector window and change the values, your Window focus is now on the Inspector.  You will need to click to the Layout window to put focus back on that window.

          These suggestions are read by Development and Product Management where they are then discussed and considered for future releases.  I could copy your post and paste it into the web form, but there are a couple of questions asked that only you can answer.
