Experience. Found that out in the situation where Enter does not work
(e.g. Edit fields, but there must be more).

I know. Would be great if that alone worked in the dialogs where it
should be possible. Which is not the case. And then Ctrl+Enter doesn't
work either.
Maybe it is not the default button, but the Close/OK button.

I explained the situations where it's different.
And as written, it sometimes is Alt+Enter closes. E.g. Macro> Organize dlg.

Makes sense of course.
