Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

The Elements List dialog can currently be opened (with NVDA+F7) only when in browse mode.
It is confusing for beginners, and uselessly tedious for more experienced ones.

Describe the solution you'd like

Support invoking it when in focus mode too.
I guess the lesser impact UX would be to switch to browse mode when invoking the dialog from focus mode.

Describe alternatives you've considered

Additional context

PR on its way.

In Word 365, I have a document where this, apparently, doesn't work when I just open the document via File Explorer. I get a message asking me if I want to turn off autocorrect suggestions (my quick and dirty translation from Danish).

The work-around seems to be switching to Browse mode and back to Focus Mode. After that, I can open the elements list just fine from within Focus Mode.

Is this expected behavior?

I am running NVDA 2020.4 beta 1.

I have the same issue with Word and Office 365, NVDA 2020.4 beta 1 on Windows 10.
After opening the document and pressing nvda+F7, I get the suggestions list for mispelled word, as if I had pressed f7 key.
After entering browse mode with nvda+space and pressing nvda+F7, the elements list appears correctly.
Returning to focus mode and pressing nvda+f7 again displays the elements list correctly.

This is still happening in beta 4 of NVDA 2020. Just noting this down here so I don't forget. Hope it can be dealt with at some point.

Confirming I can replicate this issue. No error or anything is recorded in the log. For neatness, I've written up a new issue: #12050.

I think we can leave this issue closed (the feature has been implemented), but move any new conversation on the Word isssue with it, to the new issue.
