Hi everyone,

Yesterday we discussed the ‘design canvas’ exception, for areas of a page which have multiple (1 to thousands) of things which are editable.

The (very) draft version of that exception can be seen / commented / refined here:

“The trigger for hover of focus is an editable item within a region of the page dedicated to editable items;”

A key thing to understanding this is that:
It is partly an issue because if you make a design-oriented interface keyboard-accessible, then focus will trigger this SC rather than hover.

We did discuss removing the focus aspect, but it leaves a logical hole where anything which shows extra UICs on focus would pass, even if it also uses hover.

Kind regards,
