I just worked out that if the text field is highlighted by swiping it
with the mouse it stays active as long as the mouse is close to the field.
This actually makes the text entry more usable, but it's still easy to make

This is the first real recording I've tried doing with A3 as opposed to
just testing. I was beginning to wonder if it was a mistake, due to settings
apparently changing themselves at random, but it was due to me typing into
what I thought was an active text field :-)
