What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?
Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?

The cursor doesn’t go anywhere; it stays in the field. That’s very confusing. I often immediately started using the navigation keys, only to find them appended to the clip’s name. Not so much of a bug as much of a nuisance.
This is by design and not a bug. Enter does not navigate focus; tab does. As already pointed out a couple of times Shift+Esc gives focus to the player and not any specific control to allow global shortcuts to work.

You don’t actually need to push back on suggestions. I’m not on your team; I’m your client. And expect to be treated as such. This forum is to me a suggestion box.
