Consistent Enter/Return key behavior please

It would be great if the user interface was consistent in behavior.

For example, the Enter key is the same as clicking on OK in the Reconcile dialog for an Investing account.  But, for a Banking account, Enter does nothing in that Reconcile dialog.

Both dialogs do respond to the ESCape key as if the Cancel button was clicked, so at least that is normal/consistent.

This inconsistent behavior of Enter is seen in various other places in the product, at least when Tab is behaving to move between fields.   Has annoyed me for years, but figured I'd finally add a "wish". :-)

    I agree! This behavior is not only nonstandard, it's annoying as heck. I was reconciling banks accounts earlier today and couldn't just hit Enter. The only choices are to tab down to the OK button or use the mouse.

    Quicken Windows developers don't seem to be very keen on following GUI standards.
