1. It is impossible to move to any pane with the Ctrl-PgDn key in the "Properties of ..." window if focus is on any sheetbutton, not on tab's title. It is very inconvenient for a user. According to Java L&F the following keybord operations should work for tabbed panes: Ctrl-down (up) arrow Ctrl-PgDn (PgUp) 2. It would be better to have mnemonics for a tab's title and a user can navigate from tab to tab using keyboard operations.

Property sheet is being rewritten as a JTable (there is a prototype in progress). One of the main reasons is problems with keyboard navigability. This issue will be resolved as part of the rewrite.

Fixed - new property sheet committed. Tabs eliminated by default; once Form editor implements tabs, can be tested there, but no reason it shouldn't work - we're using standard JDK components now, not SheetButton.
