Looking for Keyboard shortcut to open brokerage transaction editor

Is there a keyboard shortcut for entering the pop-up editor for a brokerage transaction ?  

I have to edit a lot of brokerage transactions, and all the ways to open the editor require the mouse or multiple keys

double click, or
select row and click edit button, or
right click row and select edit option, or
menu Edit / Transactions / Edit Transactions, or
Alt E, plain T, plain D twice

Things are already slow enough when the edit is Done, and don't want to mouse around.

My banking register is 'live editing' for whatever cell I cursor to.  Not sure why brokerage register is not the same way.

    Try CTRL-E.
    You're right! How could I have missed that?

    Don’t beat yourself up, @UKR. CTRL-E is not listed in the online help’s keyboard shortcut page as it should be. I just submitted a bug report about that.

    Do pop-up menus have to be enabled for this to work?  Because, while in a brokerage acct, CTRL-E did nothing for me.

    Pop-up menus enabled? Is that a Quicken thing?
    You must have an existing transaction selected. Then CTRL-E will edit it. It won't create a new transaction from the bottom empty line.

    The existing transaction you wish to edit must have been selected (highlighted) already. This does not work for the new transaction line.

    @UKR Thanks, that was it.  But it seems kinda useless to only work to edit previously input transactions and not new ones.

    CTRL-N opens the transaction editor to create a new investment transaction.

    From C. D. Bales:
    My investment Transaction List Edit and Delete buttons have no underlined characters either; but I can click CTRL+e and open the Edit dialog for an
    investment transaction. Once in the Edit transaction dialog, I can Tab through all its fields. Q2019 R18.15.

    I submitted a second bug report. The right-click menu in the investment register does not display the keyboard shortcuts as it should. So CTRL-E is completely undocumented.
    See, for example, the Tools menu, which properly shows keyboard shortcuts.


    Compare with the investment transaction menu, which lacks them.
