Slides keyboard navigation not working unless the window is clicked

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a new note, on ‘Editing Mode’ add some text in a couple of slides.
  • Open the command palette (cmd+P) and select “Slides: Start Presentation”
  • The presentation will start
  • Try to move between slides using the keyboard shortcuts (left and right keys)

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

I can use the left and right keyboard arrows to move between slides

Actual result

left and right keys does nothing. BUT after clicking on the window, left and right starts working.
