I'm certainly not seeing that behavior here; typing Cmd-1 does an immediate switch between Source and Preview and I can immediately type in the Source window. Are you talking about some other windows? Do you have something running in the background that is intercepting keystrokes? Are you getting a beachball? How is you Disk space and/or RAM space? Does it happen even just after booting up?

PS: There are no released intermediate versions between 3.36.2 and 3.38.

Good Luck,
