I like that in the application (OS X) I can tab between fields on the servings table where we enter items of food and drink. Sometimes I want to see the sum total bar-charts again, not the chart for a highlighted food item. It means I have to click on some part of the screen to do a simple "deselect all". Would be better to have a Key assigned ie. Esc or some combination of modifiers and letter key or option-tab or anything. I use a stylus and wacom so it's irritating to continual have to leave keyboard when a simple keystroke would suffice.

Also when tabbing through the Measure field how does one pull down the menu just with keystrokes. I though I got a double arrow icon to appear in the right side of field once but got no further and couldn't even repeat that operation using randomised trials :-)

These options would help people with poor motor control etc etc too.

    Actually even clicking elsewhere on screen doesn't bring back the day totals, nor does clciking on say the exercise tab and clicking back, I have to click forward a day then back a day. This is not good!!
