Summary0017487: TAB in Object Inspector causes problem
DescriptionIf you hit TAB in the object inspector, it somehow skews the keyboard input in such a way that typing a character where a property name of starts with that character the cursor is set to that property's setting box. If you hit TAB again the error is fixed.
Additional InformationWindows XP

I find it natural to type TAB to move to the next property in the object inspector. It doesn't do it and instead causes that bug.
TagsNo tags attached.

I don't know if I understand you correctly, I thought it was by design, so you switch properties quickly with the keyboard, one tab to select list of property names, another tab to enter a property value.

This was fixed somehow by Paul Ishenin with issue 0016259. His comment:

Now when you click on Object inspector or change selected components it switches to editing mode from navigation mode. If someone needs better notifications of that mode please create a patch and open another issue.

What kind of behaviour in object inspector would be the best?

I suggest removing this feature for the benefit of those moving from Delphi. For those already used to this, make it an option in Environment>Object Inspector settings.

The described behavior is by design. To turn this off, you may create a new feature request.
