Fuchsteufel 0 Posted September 16, 2011 Share Posted September 16, 2011 If the Evernote Update Version dialog appears while I'm currently typing into a note, the dialog steals the keyboard focus, eats my keystrokes, and consequently activates some random action in the dialog (Install, Cancel, whatever).Clearly unacceptable and dangerous behavior! A pop-up dialog should NEVER steal the keyboard focus! Let the user click on it first, when he wants to interact with it.I realise that focus-stealing dialogs are a pervasive (plus risky, annoying, and inexcusable) problem in Windows. But surely it's possible for developers to code their pop-up (modal) dialogs to NOT take the keyboard focus? Link to comment
