How to edit index card using keyboard?

When the corkboard is selected, and I can navigate between index cards with the arrow keys, how do I edit one? Pressing enter simply inserts a new card (which is very odd to me, as I that’s also what ALT-N does).

The Escape key will do the trick. Also, in the Navigation preferences you can turn off “Return creates new item”, in which case enter will also do what you want.
All the best,

Cool, that does exactly what I want. Thanks.

Keith, If you turn off “Return creates new item”, then Return won’t work for adding new topics and subtopics. Hitting the Escape key didn’t work for me, how come (I’m on a Macbook). All the escape key did was let me move left or right with the directional keys across the title of one card. It didn’t let me navigate between cards.
