[UI] Limit cursor from escaping right-click slider sensitive input box
When altering values via the right click slider sensitive input box, the user wants to visually analyze the changes in the resulting image.
Unfortunately, due to the box self-closing if the cursor escapes the somewhat finnicky box edge, this is a real pain which often results in multiple retries and the user having to look back and forth between the input box and the image.
Limiting the cursors from escaping the right-click slider sensitive input box until a value has been selected (via button push) or something obvious (eg. escape) has been pressed might be a good strategy for resolving this usability issue.

What do you mean with box edge? You can have the cursor inside the popup wherever you want, no need to aim for some tiny pixels. I am not really sure that I see your problem. Do you need to move your mouse around while typing?

By "box edge" I mean the edge of the popup.
The usability problem is:
- eyes are obviously on the image, not on popup box (I am not German, I don't care about the numeric value)
- if cursor slips out of popup box, status is lost and I have to start again
It's annoying as hell.
The suggested fix would be to capture the cursor until a value has been selected.
