Hi all,


We are trying to make out web app more accessible, and I have a few questions for how to make our sketch tools keyboard accessible.


Firstly, is there a keyboard shortcut already for starting a sketch? I found the ones for adding vertices but now would like to start the sketch of a polygon or line using only a keyboard.


Secondly, is there a keyboard control for selecting the graphic to edit, and then to control the transforms etc with keyboard only?

Lastly, do you have any recommendations for starting the drawing at a specific point? E.g. with a mouse you would usually click where you want to start, or move the cursor and then can use the keyboard controls. After calling mapView.focus() how can I get the cursor into position on the mapView to start sketching?


Thanks in advance!
