|Summary||0005191: Arrow keys in the mixer window have perplexing behaviour.|
|Description||I don't know what the arrow keys are supposed to do in the mixer window, but I'd be alarmed if the current behaviour is by design.|
Sometimes the up & down arrows adjust the pan width, and left & right arrows the pan position of the channel under the mouse cursor; sometimes the up & down arrows adjust the channel fader of the channel under the mouse; sometimes they don't do anything; and sometimes they affect a channel that's not under the mouse.
I propose that the left & right arrow keys should select the previous or next track, and that up & down should probably affect the selected track's fader, but as long as the behaviour is discoverable & consistent I'd be happy.

Ah, it seems that when the mixer window is first shown, up & down arrow adjust the fader of the selected channel, and left & right do nothing.
As soon as the mouse cursor passes over a panner, that panner 'captures' the arrow keys, which then only affect that panner, until the mouse passes over another panner.
