Unable to change focus to Phrase List or Word list with keyboard

This function has never worked for me, so I've just gotten around it in other ways, but I decided to finally ask about it to see if maybe I'm doing something wrong or it's a known bug.

According to the manual, I should be able to simulate right-clicking on the current selection in the Phrase or Word advisory by first pressing Ctrl+/ to shift the focus to the IT advisory window, and then Ctrl+P or Ctrl+G.

No matter which method of key pressing I use ...

pressing and holding Ctrl+/ while also pressing P or G,
pressing Ctrl+/, then letter go and pressing Ctrl+P or Ctrl+G

...I get the same results:

With Ctrl+P, I get the submenu that includes Importer, Clipboard Statistics, etc. With Ctrl+G, I get the option to change the number of lines in the advisory.

I have never been able to get the effect of simulating right-clicking the advisory selection with the mouse to take me to the glossary viewer window.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

Thanks in advance!
