Asana is consuming the TAB in Alt+Tab

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
Since the day before yesterday there’s been an odd behaviour exhibited by Asana. Asana is consuming the TAB keystroke when you Alt+Tab to it in Windows.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the Asana Description text area of any task
  2. Start a bulleted list: Shift+Ctrl+8 (Windows)
  3. Enter some text and leave the cursor on the bulleted item
  4. Switch to another application
  5. Switch back to Asana using the Windows Alt+Tab keyboard shortcut
  6. You will find that the bulleted item that you left the cursor on gets tabbed (indented) once to the right.

Browser version:
Yandex version 20.8.3.115 (64-bit)

Hey @Alex_Githatu, and thanks for the report!

Is there any chance you could record a screencast to illustrate this issue? Many thanks!

This works correctly on mac. Might be isolated to Windows.

Can you try it on Google Chrome? It might also be the browser that is reading that keyboard input.

Thanks for the input @karlog :slight_smile:

I’m still working from home and don’t have a PC to try reproducing!

@karlog same behaviour on Chrome, Vivaldi and Brave

Does the Mac also use Alt+Tab to switch between applications?

Yes. Its just named as command + tab in mac. But its the same. I am gonna try it on my windows machine now.

Here is the link to the screen capture. The problem mainly occurs when you are very quick with Alt + Tab. If you are slow in releasing the keys, then the bug does not occur. This can be considered as a minor issue.

Confirmed. If I’m slower with the Alt+Tab then the indentation does not occur. However, that is a speed I’m unlikely to use since I’ve grown accustomed to quickly switching between applications. Especially if I’m copying and pasting content between them.
