I'd like to bring something back, which was discussed in sep-dec 2008 "OSX
10.5 event.key bug", which was initially posted by James Schombert.
Did I miss any development in this field?
I tried to implement the latest proposal, which allows you to switch off the
mpl-axes-interaction during key_press_event's for a specific axes using
Therefore I changed the backend_bases.py and the axes.py (see attachement).
If this is a suitable solution, one could switch off the mpl-axes-interaction
during key_press_event's for all axes belonging to a button, slider, ... .
