Does _gui_input() only handle mouse events?

in my projects i never seem to get gui_input to work even though i´m familiar with the input propagation in godot.

So i read the docs: Control — Godot Engine (latest) documentation in English

And here it seems that they only handle mouse events? I tested in my projects with a simple print() and it only prints something when the mouse is involved, but no keys.
Is this normal behavior / how its supposed to be?
