      Description

      Having a TableView with row selection inside a ScrollPane, we noticed that our test users unavailingy press the cursor keys in the hope the scroll the visible columns left and right on screen. It seems that this is not possible with row selection, which is very sad, because it means that it is impossible to scroll horizontally without using the mouse. What to do if someone has no mouse?

      Hence we want to suggest that the scroll pane catches cursor keys for horizontal scroll, independent of whether the table view is in row selection mode or not. This will help keyboard-only users.
