I am using coda as my main editor on mac. But I want to use just the keyboard for navigating through file browser. This I was able to quite easily by installing the plugin to switch between editor and file browser and then turning off the feature which opens files on a single-click or when it is focussed.

Now my problem is how to open a file in editor when I press enter - the file rename mode gets activated when I press enter while navigating in file browser. any ideas?

Have you tried pressing command o instead of enter? –  bmike Jul 19 '11 at 13:00

Both return and command + O work to open files in my version of coda.

Is your enter key only an enter key or combined?

It doesn't look like that plug in changes key bindings so you might have to search elsewhere for something that is altering the standard behavior. Other tweaks or software possibly?

pressing return renames the file and pressing command + o opens the Open file dialog. Are you saying that command + o opens a file in editor in coda? –  ShiVik Jul 19 '11 at 13:33
    
even removing the plugin doesn't work. –  ShiVik Jul 19 '11 at 13:38
    
I would have been surprised if that plug in was causing the issue. It works for me return or command+o - so either I don't really understand what you mean "open in editor" or you have something else broken that eludes me. Have you contacted Panic - their support is top notch and perhaps they can understand better what you mean or suggest another plug in to better meet your needs. –  bmike Jul 19 '11 at 13:45

turns out that I have to press command + down to open the file. –  ShiVik Jul 19 '11 at 13:45
