    I'm on 4.2.3, but I can recall on one or another earlier versions, hitting the "tab" key when the auto-complete list appeared would tab down the list, at which point I could hit "enter" to have the appropriate entry transferred to the blank field.  It doesn't seem to work that way now.  Does anyone know a simple "fix" for this? Or is just me?

    With your mouse, you can scroll down the list and select the one you want. No need to have to use keys at all.

    Perhaps, although I don't recall that action. I've always used the down-arrow key to navigate down the list, then enter to select. There was a problem with the enter key on previous versions that also selected the SAVE button which would prevent additional entries into the edit interface (like no SOUR, no NOTE, etc).

  • Antiqueone, many people (me included) prefer the keyboard over the mouse for repetitive tasks. It's far more efficient. IMO a good app will allow mouse-free data entry.
