Enter text edit box without mouse click

Mar 20, 2013 8:05 AM

Say I am moving a text box with the arrow keys and decide to edit it. To do so, I would have to leave the arrow keys and reach for the mouse to execute the text edit. How do I edit from the keyboard? thanks a bunch!

    Do you use the Cmd(Ctrl) key to access the Selection Arrows? If you use these, you can keep the text tool active.

    Your request is currently not available in Illustrator.

    you may want to click it with the mouse right after you make a copy of it, while your hand is still on the mouse, then after you edit it you press Esc and move it with the arrow keys.
