Set focus on first field´s on repeating group

I know this is an old topic, but the topic that has a proposed solution is closed and I don’t think the solution works.

I want to have my menu UX the same in all locations in my app but the focus won’t work still in a RG. I can reference the rg itself but that presents all kinds of issues with responsiveness. It will also always stick at the top of the rg.

The problem with changing it into a group is that you cant click outside of it to close. Perhaps the next best thing is a popup but that breaks with the UX.

Is this on the radar to get implemented? Having focus groups in RG’s is a pretty common request I feel…
