Let's say I have a basic preferences dialog (tabs at the top, but I could also have put them at the left, it doesn't matter here).
I like to use the tabulation key to navigate through the options. Let's say I just opened my preferences dialog, the that image is what I see. Would it make more sense sense to have the tab
One as the first selected item, or to make
line selected first?
In the first case, it lets you navigate through the tabs. In the second case, you have a direct access to the editable element. Since it is the first tab, it will probably be the one with the elements that need to be edited first.
Is there a guideline to chose a somehow better option in such a case?
