The only thing that has made sense to me is :

   Enter for accepting changes made in a box's text and exit that mode ;

   Escape for cancelling those changes and exit that mode too ;

   Shift-Enter to insert a literal newline in a box's text (currently
   meaningless because they get replaced by Space by the loader/saver) ;

   Those shortcuts don't necessarily apply to the main Edit Mode... I don't
   recall whether we bound Enter to « switch to text edition ». Escape has
   no effect in that context, because there's no modal dialogue-like thing
   to get out of. A text edition in progress is quite « modal » in that
   particular meaning of the word (but there are several things called
   «Modes»... e.g. Ctrl+e wouldn't be called « modal »).
