Shortcut to move cursor after closing tag

Post by kg129 » Tue Feb 21, 2017 9:39 pm

How do I move the cursor after the closing tag. I expect "Tab" to do this, but "Tab" skips into the next tag instead. Example, where # is the cursor position:

Code: Select all

<para>This is <bold>bold#</bold></para>
<para>Some text.</para>
Hitting "Tab" moves the cursor as:

Code: Select all

<para>This is <bold>bold</bold></para>
<para>#Some text.</para>
Instead, I want the cursor to move after </bold> so I can finish the sentence:

Code: Select all

<para>This is <bold>bold</bold>#</para>
<para>Some text.</para>
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I can't find how to change this. In my menu shortcuts, "Tab" is mapped to "Shift Right". I'm on Oxygen 18.1.

Hi,

Indeed when editing in the Author editing mode the TAB navigation behaves as you exemplified. Basically it seems to prefer jumping directly to places where there is text content.
I will add an internal issue, maybe we can improve on the current behavior.
