4.9 Bug: Button blocks cursor keys
I'm using the cursor keys to move my character around (just like WASD does). If I have a button in my HUD and click on this Button, cursor keys seem to be hard coded to navigate into the UI. So pressing e.g 'Left' in this situation does not move my character anymore. To be able to move again, I've to click into the game window again.
Is it possible to get around that hard coded functionality? Thank you.

Working as intended. If you don't want the UI to consume navigation keys, don't place focus on the UI. Buttons by default are focusable, and will take focus when clicked. So change the button to not be focusable. The arrow keys are navigation keys that shift focus between UI elements, so that keyboard and controller input can be used to navigate the UI.
