Re: Keystroke Timing in DHS Trusted Tester

In the attached example, you have to hold ctrl+arrow until the item moves
to where you want it then let go of the key to "drop" it. That's a timing
problem. You have to time your drop correctly to put it where you want.

In your alt+shift+arrow example, it's not clear whether timing is needed.
Are you allowed to press alt+shift+arrow and the action happens right then
or do you have to hold that key combination? If pressing the key
combination immediately moves the tile in the list, then that's not a
timing issue. If you have to press and hold and you see the tile moving in
the list and when you let go of the keys it stops where you want it to,
that would be a timing issue.
