Enter Key works differently under Mac OS X and Windows

Hi,
I am hoping someonecould provide an answer to what I thought was a simple issue, but to date I have not been able to find a solution either by playing with settings or looking in the forums.

When I work with IDEA on Windows I often press CTRL-SPACE which pops up a list of completions. I then scroll down and press the ENTER key to select my choice. This works fine.

When I work with IDEA on Mac OS X I do the same. Pressing CTRL-SPACE which pops up a list of completions same as Windows, but when I scroll down and press the ENTER key to select my choice I get new line rather than the element I selected. What's worse, is anything that is selected prior to pressing CTRL-SPACE is deleted.

The whole experience has been very frustrating especially since I have not been able to solve the issue myself.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

Spencer
