Photoshop: Add a keyboard shortcut to enter Text Editing mode

Currently you can exit Text Editing mode in Photoshop by pressing cmd + enter.

What I'd like is a keyboard shortcut to *enter* Text Editing mode after selecting a text layer.

This has now been implemented in Photoshop CC 2018 (version 19.0). Enjoy!

Normally you just use Enter to commit a text layer. Command Return (or Control Return on Windows) is only there for keyboards that don't have an Enter key (such as laptops that mislabel the return key and don't have a numeric keypad).

D'oh I meant cmd + return. I didn't know that Enter key is an alternative shortcut for exiting text editing mode. Thanks :)

If you use the numpad's enter key, it exits from text editing mode.

I'd like this. Maybe enter (or command-return) could be a toggle?

Definitely would like to be able to add a shortcut for this as well, there seems to be no good way of entering text editing mode other than double clicking a text layers icon correct?

With a text layer selected (command-return) as a toggle would be fantastic. The use case is pretty straight forward I think, any time working with multiple text items, this would make it much faster.

And return to edit the layer name text would be very helpful as well.

Toggle would be great indeed.

Return now puts focus in the Font selection dropdown.
Enter (Fn+Return) does the same.

Would be great to have Enter to start editing a Type layer instead.

I don't think there's a menu entry or panel option somewhere so we can manually set a keyboard shortcut for it in the meantime?

Need this! You can navigate layers using only the keyboard, and exit editing mode via the keyboard, so adding a keyboard shortcut for entering text editing mode on the selected later would allow you to quickly edit text layers without the need to go back and forth to the mouse.

Ctrl + T does this! Only just found this now too.

So it's Ctl + T for editing text,
Enter to choose font,
Ctrl + <> font size,
V budge, Shift V bigger budge,
Ctrl + Enter Exit Text,
