    This happens to me as well. I can use ESC or TAB to get into the search box and then ESC again to get back to the text; so I don't have to use a mouse, but seems like an unnecessary step.

    Good point. We'll add this to the list to fix, thanks!

    Just want to add that this loss of focus now also happens when zooming into an empty sublist, don't think it did that before. This means that you either have to click somewhere or press Esc two times to be able to zoom out again. Trouble is, when you then zoom back out, it loses focus again, which makes navigating a pain right now.

    Further clarification: This only seems to happen if the caret position is at the beginning of the empty bullet/sublist when zooming in or out of it. If it is anywhere else, focus is kept intact both on zoom in and on zoom out

    Pressing ESC twice actually does not work for me (at least in my common scenario of using "Ctrl-;" to navigate home).  I always have to click at that point to activate the cursor.

    This might seem minor enough (and it is) but I'm looking forward to a fix for this so that the cursor is always active after switching via "Ctrl-;" (otherwise, my mental keyboard-centric workflow gets mauled).

    This should now work correctly.

    Can confirm that when navigating in or out of empty bullets it now works as expected again. Thanks! But there still seems to be an issue when navigating between starred pages. In my little testing just now I've found that the first time you go to a starred page it finds focus correctly, but if you then navigate away and back to the same starred page again a second time it has now lost focus. I.e the fix is only working the first time you hit the starred page.

    Thanks for working on this.  My issue is still not resolved (hitting Esc to exit the Search box causes the cursor to vanish, and Ctrl + ; still leaves the cursor absent).

    Appreciated that you're looking into this!

    What Martin said is correct. The issue persists, despite being marked as "completed".
