Controlling the Focus

In Microsoft Windows and other graphical computer interfaces, the focus — sometimes called the input focus or keyboard focus — refers to the window or control to which keyboard input is directed.

Promis.e has a hierarchical focus model. The top level is called home.

A field in the status bar indicates the focus location:

  • Home — When the focus is home, use Keyboard shortcuts (also called Ribbon group pop-ups).
  • Tool Settings — the Tool Settings window has the focus.
  • Key-in — the Key-in window has the focus.
  • AccuDraw — the AccuDraw window has the focus.
  • (No icon) — another window or dialog has the focus.
