When you gain a Dazed condition, does that prevent you from using your Focused ability to turn magnifying glass die rolls into successes? We played that it did not prevent you from using the Focused ability since the Dazed card only refers to spending clues, but it seems weird that you can be Dazed and Focused at the same time!

Dazed only restricts spending Clues, not using the Focused condition or anything else that might convert magnifying glass results.

The mental and emotional state of the investigators in this game can be... complicated.

I guess it can be thematically explained too. Dazed affects your short-term memory, you temporarily can't recall the clues you learned, and thus cannot use them to help you at the moment. Focused means you have a firm grip on the current task giving you a higher chance of success without requiring the prior knowledge.

With these descriptions, being Dazed and Focused at the same time isn't an oxymoron any more.
