> - add a keydown handler in the field. Is it received?
This is received under the same circumstances described before. I can’t add a breakpoint because the Remote Debugger will take focus from the standalone, which is one of the known workarounds. If I add an answer “foo” the focus is properly shifted to the field after the modal.

The card also doesn’t receive this message until the focus issue is resolved as described before… interesting.

Datagrid, but not on this field or parent group.

Nope, standard text that displays as soon as focus is properly received.

No tabs

No errors thrown

Win10 Boot Camp install running through Parallels, but the client who complained is on native Win10 box.
