Tab Navigation in a Table Disabled when Task Added

I generated a meeting report from a custom template that included a simple table for notes and actions. I encountered the known issue that separating the action, @mention and due date into columns prevented correct display on the profile Task List so merged three columns into one.

I often use the Tab key to navigate to the next cell when populating a table, and also to generate a new row by tabbing from the last column. This works fine when the row contains Notes (text) only, but when the Confluence checkbox, @mention and due date are included (in a single column) the Tab navigation function no longer works. The insertion point remains in the same place when the Tab key is used.

For tables that contain a combination of Notes and Actions, Tab navigation on the Notes-only rows is unaffected. It's possible to Tab into an action column but not out of it.

Hello Richard,

Thank you for reporting this. I was able to replicate the same but even with only the task macro, not including the date macro and the user mention.

I've reported it below, along with a recording:

Thank you for your help.



Thank you Shannon. We are using version 6.14.1.
