Exit Text Editor

Has anyone found the way to exit the text editor box with the keyboard. In AutoCAD you could hit CTRL+ENTER to exit the text editor box. I've tried that and ALT+ENTER, SHIFT+ENTER. I found a blog post that said CTRL+LeftARROW, but that just jumps the cursor to the left.

 

I hope there is a way. I like being able to finish text with the keyboard, seems easier to me, than having to click outside the text editor box to finish the text.

I tried for quite a bit but have not been able to find a way to accomplish this. What, if I may ask, would be the benefit of ending the Text Editor with the keyboard? You'll likely need the mouse for the next command/action anyway, right?

No benefit other than my own happiness.

 

That is how I would like it to work. I find it more convenient for me to be able to end text editing with the keyboard instead of moving to the mouse having to find that tiny cross-hair that you can't change the size of (added that to the wishlist) and make sure it's out of the text box to click to end editing. By being able to end text editing with a keystroke it then doesn't matter where the mouse ended up after typing.

 

I know this is miniscule in the grand scheme of things. I was just curious if it was possible. Like everything else you adapt yourself to fit the workflow.
