This is how the QTC window has always been. Its just like any other window if you click someplace else focus is going to shift. I could make the window modal so it stays open and focused until you finish using it but I think this brought some other results that didn’t work correctly.

I can reproduce the non-responsive ENTER issue. I am using Windows 10, but I don't know if this is specific to Windows 10.
It only requires that the QTCWindow loses focus. This can happen by clicking on another window after which the Enter key no longer goes to the QTCWindow, at least until you bring focus back to the QTCWindow.
You can also lose focus just by hovering the mouse over the bandmap. You can see this happening if you watch the top line of the QTCWindow. In my setup, I have QTCWindow showing in black text on a white background when the window is in focus. When the window loses focus the QTCWindow text turns to a light gray, so it is not all that easy to distinguish between the two states unless you are looking for the change.
The behaviour will also vary depending on where the QTCWindow shows up. If the QTCWindow is positioned over the Bandmap, just bringing the mouse over the QTCWindow/Bandmap will take focus away from the QTCWindow. Clicking on the QTCWindow with the mouse will bring the focus back, just don't drag the mouse pointer outside the QTCWindow boundary.
Better yet, move the QTCWindow away from the bandmap and just remember if you click on another window, you will need to get focus back to the QTCWindow. Hopefully, this is the scenario you are seeing and if so, it should be relatively easy to avoid.
