Press 'Tab' to enter new Array Element

Currently, if you want to enter in multiple elements in an array, you have to click on the empty element before typing.  It would be more effecient to be able to press tab to enter another element in that array.

I would even take Shift + Enter.

Tab may not be the best choice.  If you have the auto-tool turned off, Tab changes tools.  Then your next click changes the color of something!

You raise a good point. Therefore i would suggest a combination. Orrrr maybe LabVIEW should know if you have a string array selected and it just applies to the array. 🙂
