    When the Output Bar is open and focused, is there a way to:

    1. move keyboard focus back to the document with the Output Bar still open;
    2. and only by keyboard operations, or calling a macro?

    The difficulty is that when the Output Bar is focused, most shortcut keys won’t work. It seems that the main menu accelerator keys (Alt+M etc.) can be used to invoke a macro, but I failed to find a proper method to call. (Even tried document.write(''); :) ) document.SetFocus() would be dreamy.

    By the way, the help manual says F6 can be used to regain focus from several plugins (please search for “F6 key or ESC key”), but F6 has been occupied elsewhere by default. Need an update? Thanks.

    The next version will allow F6 to move from Outline Bar (or any custom bar) to the main editor pane. It was disabled since v10 for some reason.

    By the way, there is another command called “Next Pane or Custom Bar” to move between any custom bars or panes, and you can assign F6 for this. Please search the Quick Launch window.
