I just started using AE CS4 and noticed something strange - or is it just me?
Let's say I add a marker to a layer (using the asterisk key) and then right click that marker to get to Settings. Once in Settings I can type in some Comment that will be visible on the layer. If I recall doing this in AE 6.5 correctly, if I hit the Return key after typing my Comment, the Settings dialog box closed and I was back to work in AE. But now in CS4, hitting the Return key starts a new line in the Comment. If I want to close the Settings dialog box I have to grab the mouse and click the OK button. Call me crazy - but this is annoying.
Is there a way to close the Settings dialog box after typing in a Comment WITHOUT using the mouse to click the OK button??
I know it's a fine point but anything I can do to save a mouse click saves time. And I certainly don't want to forego commenting my layer markers because of the inconvenience.
You can hit the Tab key several times to highlight the Ok button and then press either Enter or the space bar. There may be a shortcut key on windows to get directly to the button like alt-something, but i'm not sure.
Hope that helps
It's because of the multitude of inputs the window has and they are all text fields. The functionality is however still there: using enter on the numpad closes the dialog and confirms the settings. Other than that, yes, Tab (forward) and Shift+Tab (backward) cycle all the inputs and buttons and cvan be used as well.
Thanks to all for the input.
Thank you - That's what I was looking for - I knew there had to be a way.
