I'm having trouble navigating from a selected palette item to a
diagram shape. ( This is with regards to some accessibility testing that
I'm doing)

What I would like to do is select an item in the palette and then navigate
to a shape in the diagram. I would then press enter or space to cause the
selected palette action of occur for the select shape.

However, when I select an item in the palette and they use the tab and
shift tab keys to navigate the shapes in the diagram never get the focus.
If I select the arrow select control in the palette I am then able to
navigate to the diagram shapes. However, selecting the select arrow in
the palette causes the palette item to become deselected. So I don't seem
to be able to do both at the same time. I read through the GMF navigation
guide at the link below, but was unable to figure out how to do this. Can
someone let know how I can do this navigation via the keyboard or is this
a GMF limitation. Thanks! gmf.doc/prog-guide/runtime/Developer%20Guide%20to%20Keyboard %20Accessibility.html
