A plea for activating the <enter> key Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have a strong habit of pressing the Enter key to commit a change to a field value in a Web form or FileMaker database. I cannot seem brake this habit in OmniFocus. For example,

1. In Project view, create a new item or select a field in an existing item.
2. Fill in (or modify) the field value (tabbing from field to field in a new item).
3. Press Enter to commit my editing.
4. Wait a moment - nothing happens.
5. Press Return to commit my editing.

If I'm doing several edits at the same time, I may remember to use the Return key. But when I switch to OmniFocus from doing something else, my right hand automatically reverts to the Enter key to commit an edit.

I considered creating a OmniFocus-specific keyboard shortcut in QuicKeys to convert an Enter into a Return. However, I expect that would mess up somewhere else where the distinction between Enter and Return is important.
