There is an annoying bug which seems to be new in 6.x (I don't remember seeing it in earlier versions). When the Reflector window is activated using Alt-Tab, the menu always takes keyboard focus, instead of leaving the focus where it was. This is very annoying when you mostly use the keyboard to navigate through the namespaces, because when you press the arrow keys, it opens the File menu instead of changing the selected item in the tree.

Can anyone reproduce this bug ?

Reflector 6.1.0.11.
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hi,

Any news on this bug ?

Actually I realize that the issue isn't really when you focus Reflector with Alt-Tab, but when you leave it with Alt-Tab. When you press Alt, it focuses the menu immediately. So when you get back to the Reflector window, the menu is still active.

The menu should be focused on the KeyUp event, not KeyDown. That's what all other applications do

It is very very annoying and has been in it since some 6.1 version, and not fixed in 6.5.

Switching back to a previoys (6.0 or 5.x) is not possible (because the update catch-22).

Being depending on keyboard (RSI, so no mouse) it makes reflector 6.1+ annoying to use.
