Thank you for suggestion, I use this approach sometimes, but I didn't know
Enter places a control in a cusror position. Really cool feature!
I mostly use the sequence:
R to create a rectangle in place I want
T to call transform dialog
L to jump to label
Enter to pick it, and
Enter to start editing
Still, the issue is when I make UI for non-english language, I need to switch the keyboard additionally to type
R and the rest of shortcuts work fine for non-english keyboard layout.
I'll try your approach, thanks!
