Is there a keyboard key to insert the next tag? The usual method with place cursor in target, position mouse cursor in source, double-click is cumbersome when a large number of tags need to be moved from the source to the target.

Yes there is Jul 10

shift + ctrl + "number"
and its not a secret that cannot be found somewhere in the internet if one tried to find it somewhere.
there are zillions of shortcuts, some ridiculous and some very useful.

Ctrl+Shift+number Jul 10

This is what can be found in Across Help by the "shortcuts" key word:

(not on number pad)
Copy an inline object (= gray and green field as well as tags) from the source text to the target text: Ctrl+Shift+1 inserts the first inline object, Ctrl+Shift+2 the second, etc.

Thanks, this is what I was looking for - I somehow missed the shortcut in the reference.
A shortcut I found by chance is Ctrl+n to insert CrossTerm entry "n".

Does not work Sep 20

I have SDL 2015 and this shortcut doesn't work in it. Does someone know any other possibilities to insert a tag?
