API docs steal arrow keys [documentation bug]

Reported by: whatcould Owned by:

API docs should not hijack arrow keys for custom behavior.

To reproduce: Attempt to use arrow keys to scroll page, like every other website

Expected result: Page scrolls

Current result: Page jumps abruptly to the "focused" method

Maybe you could use j/k for up/down? Hijacking arrow keys is a usability nightmare.

I can see your concern, but the way it's set up now actually makes the keyboard more usable since you can tab/arrow through the entries quickly and hit enter to go to the entry in focus. If you'd like to start a discussion on the forum to propose a better way, feel free but I'll close this since it's not really a bug.
