Ctrl-Enter doesn't do what you say it does. It introduces a newline in the 
text you are writing. Somehow it used to be doing it correctly, but 
stopped doing it correctly when the history feature was added to objectbox 
edition (there were just too many features in DesireData : that one 
overrode the normal use of the up and down arrows. I don't recall why we 
did it like that.)

a plain Enter terminates the objectbox, which is a lot more convenient 
than taking the mouse and find a spot where there's a piece of nothingness 
you can click on so that your objectbox gets made without triggering any 
other change by accident.

then in DesireData, a box you finished with Enter is also automatically 
selected, and this selection is used in determining the origin of the 
auto-connection done when making an objectbox with Ctrl-6 (six).
