'+E' & '-E'

Multi-Line Enter as Tab

Behaviour or GUI Display


Allow Enter = Tab '+E'

Disable Enter = Tab : '-E' (default state) 


Use '+E' and '-E' to control the use of the Enter key as Tab in Multi-Lines. Normally, within a MULTI_LINE, the Enter key is used to signal input completion or to enter a new line on a MULTI_LINE control that accepts multiple lines.

Setting the '+E' mnemonic causes the Enter key to be considered a Tab key, which can be used to advance to the next input field.

This mnemonic is often used to ease the transition of text mode applications, which historically used Enter to advance between fields to the Windows convention of using the Tab key.
