I remember a question being asked a while back about how to go back to the TU after you use Ctrl+Shift+M to add a new term to Multiterm while in Word.

Usually this requires a couple of mouse clicks, which can slow things down. I've almost accidentally discovered a shortcut. Instead of just pressing Enter after you're done entering your term, press Alt+Enter, and that takes you back to your TU.

Just thought I'd share in case it helps someone else.

You can also do Alt+A, which replaces clicking on the Add button. That will close the Multiterm window and immediately get your cursor back into Word.

Thanks for the tip, Nora!
