Some confusion probably caused by not reading the proposals for this 
release. I was not aware there was a search box in the Home View. What 
is its

Currently, the XO palette is open when the Home View appears. This is 
presumably a bug and not a feature which will be fixed by putting the 
focus on the search box. I hope this new search box has a sufficiently 
useful function for all XOs to justify this grab for attention.

The problem with the palette is that it is modal and no action can be 
taken on the keyboard (e.g. switch to Journal or Neighborhood View or 
look at Frame) until the cursor is moved. This, of course, requires one 
more step in 'onboarding' to make users aware of the disabling nature of 
modal dialogs.
