Focus control after adding


When adding a control by using “Quick Add” the focus is still in the Quick Add Field. So I have to press ESC or click on the added Control to edit it.

I think it would be better to set the added Control in focus instead of the Quick Add Field. What do you think about that?


Hi @romulus68 and thanks for reaching out about this.

Currently, we leave the focus in the Quick Add field to make it easier to add multiple and/or many controls at once, without having to go back there manually each time. I’m afraid that changing this behavior would break the workflow of many users.

That being said, you can put the focus back to the control by pressing ESC or even ENTER to start editing text controls.

Hope this makes sense! Thanks for sharing your thoughts today. :slight_smile:
