A keymap whose loss I mourn

With Idea 5.x, when I committed an individual file, I could hit "alt-m" on the commit dialogue to select the commit button. This was helpful because in the comment textbox, hitting "tab" will actually print a tab character (as opposed to changing focus to the buttons on the dialogue).

With Idea 6, there is no keyboard shortcut for hitting the commit button. I'm forced to use my mouse and clicking that pesky button. The loss in productivity has been staggering.

Is there a way to hit that button without using my mouse? If not, can I add this feature request to Jira?

Thank you,

~kc

Have you tried CtrlEnter? Also I see AltI mnemonic in the current builds (will be available as 6.0.2).

Just to add to a little more info...

Ctrl-enter works for EVERY IntelliJ dialog. Meaning, it will activate the default button when pressed.

Many thanks to the replies -- ctrl-enter worked perfectly. My productivity is now at an all-time high; my job security intact.
