"Enter" in Events minimizes window
I've just downloaded the 14 Feb 2021 nightly build and noticed that pressing "Enter" in the Events window doesn't confirm the string data (message names, event naming, manually typing SEXPs, etc) I just entered, but closes (minimizes) the window instead. The last nightly I used previously was a Dec 2020 nightly and it worked the way I've accustomed to since vanilla.

I've always used "Enter" a lot while making events, and looks like I'll have to get used to this new system.

Is this intentional? If yes, what's the justification behind this?

The fix is in a PR already.  Just wanted more than one pair of eyes to look at it before merging.

Okay, so it's there for a reason, but what does it "fix"? It must be quite a thing if you folks decided to override a no-brainer behavior like this that hasn't bothered someone who has FREDded since vanilla came out.

Re: "Enter" in Events minimizes window
I think you misunderstand, this change was unintentional, and a PR which reverts it to its previous behavior is in the pipe.

I also find this really a pain in the butt because it's such a reflex-style action. Thanks for remedying this.
