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.

  • it now works as you describe. that was not the behavior when I posted it. great, I'm happy, thanks. – Assaf Lavie Sep 6 '09 at 21:44
