TAB key inside text editor

Long time Jira user evaluating YouTrack.

When I create a new issue I fill the Summary, then I press TAB to change to the content textarea and then the TAB changes behaviour and serves only to indent text.

I know I can submit the issue by pressing CTRL+ENTER but if I want to edit fields below text area I'm stuck with using the mouse.

From what I've read, I think I can remap the whole shortcut keys.

How is the community working around this?

This behaviour will be changed in the next YouTrack versions: tab would only shift text when the text is selected, and if it is not, tab would navigate between elements. Please follow this issue to receive a notification when the fix is released.
