Return/enter key should accept text edits for Callouts


Currently, we have to move our hand from our keyboard, to the mouse, find the pointer, and click "OK" to accept the Callout changes. I understand that VWX probably wants us to be able to enter multiple lines of text, but do it like Excel and many other programs by having the return key accept the dialogue box and use alt+return to create a new line within the text box. Most of the time I am typing one continuous phrase or even just one word, and having to use the mouse every time slows me down considerably.

On the Mac version at least, the Enter key on the numeric keypad will click the OK button (and - like you said - the Return button inserts a carriage return on the text field).


I think that distinction between Return and Enter is fairly universal across VW data.


If your keyboard has it you can also use fn-Return instead of Enter to activate the OK button.
