Description Frank Steinmetzger 2022-09-17 12:34:50 UTC
I just noticed that I can’t navigate to submenus in the cascading menu anymore. I can only go up and down on the main menu level and open a submenu with cursor right, but while the visible selection mark enters the menu, the actual focus does not. Instead, pressing up/down still changes the top-level menu selection.

1. Press <Meta> to open the menu.
2. Use cursor up/down to select a menu.
3. Press cursor right to open a submenu. The first item of the submenu is highlighted.

Selection focus stays in the top level. Pressing up/down when the submenu item is highlighted still selects a new menu here instead. If the highlighted submenu item is a menu item itself, pressing cursor right again does not enter its subsubmenu. Observed under both X11 and Wayland.

Cursor navigation should be restored to the original and intuitive behavior.

Correction: I’m back in X11 and I can’t reproduce it there.
