When I have clicked Tab to highlight the Replace All button, Enter doesn't do anything. Do I absolutely have to use the mouse for this?

It's inefficient to move between the keyboard and mouse when carrying out a long sequence of "Find & Replace" actions.

This is Pages 5.0 (1465) running on Yosemite.

  • As far as I know "clicking" the highlighted button is perormed with the Space Bar not the Enter key. – Mateusz Szlosek Aug 23 '16 at 18:49

Use the Spacebar Space to click the selected button (not the Enter key Enter). That should do it for you.

(Note to editors: I want to have the word "Spacebar" in there in case someone searches for it.)
