Description markiewb 2013-07-03 21:13:39 UTC
I miss the ARROW-navigation within the breadcrumb bar

* horizontal ARROW-navigation (press LEFT/RIGHT) to switch the breadcrumb entries
[Class] > Member  >  SubMember //press RIGHT - [] marks the current selection
 Class > [Member] >  SubMember //press RIGHT
 Class >  Member  > [SubMember]//press LEFT
 Class > [Member] >  SubMember //and so on...

  When an entry is selected then it should popup its children too.

* vertical navigation (press UP/DOWN) for switching the selected children item (#232227)

* I also miss a shortcut to get the input focus to the breadcrumb bar. I like to press a shortcut to set the focus to the most significant breadcrumb entry (the rightmost one) and then I like to navigate via ARROW-keys (as explained above)

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
