Great for some other programs too
Authored by: everkleer80 on Mar 02, '11 12:51:58PM

I wasn't too impressed by this hint at first - it's a good hint, I just never use Go To Date in iCal. But then I realized this is useful in other programs too. There is a program I use called Paperless to store all my documents, and when I import a document it comes up with a dialog where I can enter information such as the date of the document. I have always been annoyed that the return key would not work while the focus was on the date field and I always had to tab off the date field before hitting return. FN-Return works in that case, so I am guessing there might be a bug in the OS in which return does not click the default button when using a date field. I also use a program called MoneyDance which has several dialogs in which the return key won't work; in this case, FN-return did not work either, but CTRL-return worked, as mentioned by crarko. So thank you for the hint! 5 stars!
