  The "Enter" key and the "left arrow" key are two different keys.  This
problem (bug) report is not related to the "enter" key.

  <shift><Tab> is, by overwhelming convention, the key(s) to press to go
backwards one cell.  All other programs that I know of use the left arrow to go
back one character to the left, including Libre Office Writer.

  Anyone trying to go backwards to correct a misspelling will go out of their
minds with this issue.  Leaving this bug in place will only frustrate the user.
 Users expect things to be intuitive and follow convention.  Users do not
expect to have to mouse click in the line somewhere before the left arrow
starts acting like a left arrow and not <shift><Tab>.

  Please fix this.

Many thanks,
