[110.0]: Key use while building a curiosity
« on: February 18, 2011, 11:43:52 PM »
When I build a curiosity as a public player, I get some annoying key behaviour. While I can see the logic of it, it's not very handy. After selection of a curiosity, the cursor changes. Pressing left or right arrow moves the map one tile to the left or to the right. Pressing up and down arrows selects the previous or next curiosity. This is very confusing if you are navigating to the place where you want to build the curiosity. The logic is clear, the scrollbar in the curiosity list has the focus. I could not find a way to get the focus back to the map.

Workaround: you can click on the title of any window you have opened in ST (e.g. the map editing tool) in order to set the focus to that window without selecting a different tool; this way you will keep the cursor to build the curiosity that you selected and navigation keys will work on the map. It's still a bit annoying, but works :)
