I often use the accesskey "," (comma) to put the cursor in the editing window when editing. However, this doesn't work when syntax highlighting is toggled on.
Steps to reproduce
- Make sure that the accesskey works normally by toggling syntax highlighting off, clicking anywhere outside of the editing area and then pressing Alt+, (it could be Alt+, Ctrl+Alt+,, Ctrl+Shift+, or something else depending on your browser/setup/OS)
- Toggle syntax highlighting on
- Press outside the editing area
- Press Alt+, – it won't put the cursor in the editing area.
Luckily, the fix, which I've tried in my browsers' inspect mode, is extremely easy: Simply add accesskey="," to the div that has contenteditable="true" (i.e. <div class="CodeMirror-code noime">).
