Writing flow: simplify & fix tabbing out of block #19312

merged 2 commits into from Dec 23, 2019

ellatrix commented Dec 23, 2019


In #19235, I added logic for tabbing to move focus before or after the block list if focus leaves the block. This adjusts part of it to avoid searching tabbables and based on elements outside WritingFlow.

It also fixes Storybook. The block editor currently errors if you tab out of it.

How has this been tested?

Things are becoming a little bit hard to follow for me. it would be good to clarify exactly what this component is for, its props...
