Tab key in Rstudio 1.4.1716 – macOS 11.4


I’m having a weird problem with the latest Rstudio version… I am no longer able to “type” a tab: pressing the key invariably results in focus switching to the next UI element, even when I’m actually typing in either the code editor or the console.

I can’t actually say when the behavior started, but I’m not having the same issue in any other code/text editor…

Can anyone help?

Obligatory screen cap follows… It’s kinda hard to see, also due to the key-press overlay in the GIF, but you can see the cursor disappearing and the buttons for resizing the console frame highlight as I start hitting tab…
