Chapter Thirteen. Type > Committing Type

Committing Type

Q1:Is there a quick way to finish with the Type tool other than clicking the Commit button? When I've finished typing, I need to click the Commit button in the Options Bar to finish with the Type tool. Is there a quicker way?
A1: Press the Enter key on your numeric keypad or click on another tool in the Toolbox.
Q2:How do I commit my type on a laptop? In order to tell the Type tool I'm finished, I have to commit it by clicking the Commit button. I read that you can also use the Enter key, but my laptop doesn't have a keypad. Am I out of luck?
A2: No, you can use another shortcut, made for anyone lacking an Enter keypad key. Just press Command-Return (PC: Control-Enter) instead.
Q3:I'm trying to use Command-Return (PC: Control-Enter) to commit my type, but it's not working. Why?
A3: Check to see if your cursor is still flashing in one of the text fields (Size, for example) in the Options Bar or any open palette. If it is, you'll need to press Return (PC: Enter) to finalize the choice in that field, then press Command-Return (PC: Control-Enter) to commit the type.
