Can't hit enter after dragging note to paste link onto a Canvas card

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a card in canvas
  2. Drag an existing note from side panel onto the card to create link
  3. Type enter to create a new line.

Expected result

After hitting enter, a new line should be created.

Actual result

Nothing happens.
You can write, but cannot hit enter, unless you unselect the card, select it again, and then hit enter.

(Btw, I have no plugins or snippets, but it keeps showing 1 snippet enabled in sandbox :woman_shrugging: which is also another weird thing.)

I can reproduce this on MacOS.

Reproducing: Make sure to drag a note into a card that is in edit mode, so it makes a link. Otherwise it will just drop a new card on top.

After the link is inserting, I also can’t hit enter, but I can type.

Shift-Enter works. But the caret doesn’t move. It adds new lines underneath the caret.

I can’t repro this. Can samebody post a screen recording?

I think I figured it out. The keyboard focus ends up in the File Pane. Here is a gif. You can’t see, but after dragging the link, I am hitting enter multiple times.

Then I hit up and down, and that is how I discovered the focus was still in the File Pane. Except you can still type (not shown in this gif.)

If I hit up and/or down, and then enter, it navigates to that note.
