Escape key should close slide-out detail panel in Stories->Board view

In the Stories->Board view you click on features to show the slide-out detail panel.

In some cases, this covers or partially covers the column you are viewing, and there isn't a way to avoid this due to screen size limitations. If the escape key worked to close the detail slider, it would be helpful when reviewing a column of items.

    Thank you for the request and for taking the time to create a video.

    As mentioned, the detail slider is closed by clicking away from the slider (or by clicking the X).

    Another potential workaround which would allow you to see Parking lot releases (while still being the Feature detail), would be to create 1-2 additional Parking Lot releases (which can be empty). This would allow you to scroll this section of the page, while still viewing the feature detail.

    At this time, given the workarounds and current priorities, we are unlikely to make updates in this area. We hope you can understand.
