Keyboard only navigation with tab

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Filling out a template feels very much like filling out a form, and it would be great to be able to just tab through each field and fill them out without needing to click multiple times. This is especially frustrating if I’m e.g. making dozens of tasks. I would love to be able to do this all with just the keyboard.

Describe the solution you’d like
When I press tab, the cursor should proceed to the next fillable (pre-set) field in my template, or maybe just on to the next block more generically… though that could be tricky if you’re in a text block. Just tabbing between relations in an empty template would be enough.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
You can click on every field you want to populate as you fill out a new template but this is quite annoying.

Additional context
There are accessibility arguments for this as well… ideally the app would be navigable (even if it were a bit cumbersome) using only the keyboard. Right now it seems I can get into a state where I need to click to re-set the keyboard focus if I try tabbing through the pre-set fields of a template (on v0.25.4 for M1 Mac)


Massive +1 for tab-navigation!

+1 for me too

Found this thread because I am having the hardest time getting used to navigating between blocks (like, if I am editing a list of bullet points, I can’t use up and down arrows to move between them). Interestingly enough after reading your post I realized I can use Ctrl + Tab to move to the next block.

I still expect that if I press down, and I am already at the end of the block it should go to the next.

Having more options to navigate with Tab would be really useful as you say! And it makes sense for navigating fields on a template.
