Re: [Gimp-developer] Can hitting Enter/Return twice apply changes made in popup dialogs?

Wait, what? Oh, I mean the third enter. Sorry, you're right, you have to
hit enter to confirm the option.

1st enter opens the combo box, 2nd enter confirms the selection. Third
enter commits.

From any of value box (be it combo or otherwise), you should be able to hit
Enter/Return to apply the changes of the dialog, after hitting enter to
confirm the value.

You want to quickly apply the last Preset, and sure enough, hitting
Enter/Return key after the dialog opens jumps to a preview of the
recorded preset. <-Love this.

What I'd like to be able to do is hit Enter/Return key again to apply

Instead, I either have to try to tab/shift+tab my way to the OK
click the canvas and hit Enter, or try to remember the hotkey that
the changes I've made for that specific dialog.

Hitting Enter/Return key twice does nothing currently in the dialog,
so if
the return button is hit again, is it possible to have it just commit
changes? This would dramatically help hotkey based workflow in GIMP.

You are essentially asking for:

1st enter opens combo box

2nd enter confirms entire dialog

Absoluteley not, this breaks the expected behavior of the combo
box and would lead to total confusion.

An enter in an open combo box (in all open combo boxes in GTK+)
simply confirms that combo box.
