Hello Forum!
I get a stange action of slider. The slider is moving its value when I used Keys to move my turtle. (sometime, the slider behaves as expectes, but suddenly it occured. I have some turtles that takes their value from slider (fd slider1) and one turtle that is going with the keys direction. When I push the keys, the slider is changing its value.
What is the reason?

Sometimes, when you change the value of the slider using the mouse by dragging the tip, you "give it focus". That is represented by the dotted line surrounding the slider (image attached).

When that happens the slider tip can be moved using the arrow keys.

To rehabilitate the keys for the game you need to return "focus" to the page but clicking on the background of the page.

Alternatively, never give focus to the slider. If you want to change the value of the slider just click on the name of the slider [slider1 ], that will increase it's value once for every click, and does not give focus to the slider.
