Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Make Enter behave like a normal form. Currently it just auto-completes tags (like Tab). It should add the selected tag to the list, clear the box and let you continue adding more tags.

Here's what you need to do to add two tags to a filter list now:

tag1 -> Tab -> tag2 -> Tab -> Tab -> Enter/Space

Notice the two superfluous Tabs.

Here's what I'm proposing:

tag1 -> Enter -> tag2 -> Enter

Not only is this faster, but for the 90% case of just adding a single tag to the list it's 2x as fast!

tag1 -> Enter


tag1 -> Tab -> Tab -> Enter

You are using the wrong UI :) – akarnokd Aug 5 '09 at 11:34

I don't understand this. I just added a tag to a question like so:

click Edit

tab [now at post body]

tab [now at tag field]

end [moves to end of tag field]

{type enough chars to match the tag I want}

enter [completes tag]

enter [submits]

Enter does exactly what you describe, or maybe I'm not understanding what you wrote.
