Unable to build a formula in IE when using the Spreadsheet scrollbar

Bug report

When we want to add a formula in a given cell in the Spreadsheet, we double-click it and enter the "=" in it as an identifier that a formula definition will follow. If we want to include in the formula a cell that is not inside the visible range of the Spreadsheet, we scroll to that cell and select it. In Internet Explorer, if we scroll to a given cell using the arrows of the Spreadsheet's scrollbar the "double-clicked" cell becomes just a selected one and the "=" sign is converted to a string value.

Reproduction of the problem

  1. Open this Dojo example in Internet Explorer 11
  2. Select the A1 cell and enter "=" in it.
  3. Press the "down" direction arrow of the Spreadsheet trying to reach cell A50.
  4. With the first click on the arrow, the A1 cell is no more "double-clicked" and the "=" inside it is converted to a string

Current behavior

When building a formula in a given cell and trying to navigate to a cell using the scrollbar, this usage stops the formula building and converts the "=" into a string.

Expected/desired behavior

When a user creates a formula for a given cell, they should be able to navigate through the Spreadsheet using its scrollbars.

Hello Konstantin,

Thank you for reporting the bug! It will be fixed depending on its impact over the community and our priority queue. 

As discussed in the private feed, we cannot provide a workaround that resolves the issue in Internet Explorer. To bypass the reported behavior another browser like Google Chrome could be used instead.
