This Software Is Unusable Without A Mouse...

Recommended Posts

Downloaded and installed 1.4 beta on a computer that has no mouse, only to find that the app was completely unusable after the EULA had been accepted because the TAB key couldn't be used to give focus to anything..

 

1.3 is similarly unusable because the "Standard Setup" vs "I have a Secret" wizard doesn't respond to pressing TAB - focus is locked to "Standard Setup", the tickbox at the bottom of the page doesn't ever get focus to accept the agreement, and thus the other buttons (which cannot be focused) remain greyed out..

 

Can you guys please re-jig the UI so it uses some standard components/widgets that behave normally (accept focus), or give it some visible keyboard shortcuts or something? I'm all for interfaces that look slick, but not at the expense of usability issues such as this.. :/

Second that. Using custom controls in interface wasn't a good idea, at least where possible they should have been normal controls where keyboard navigation (and standard stuff such as right-click IME support) comes free.
