Keyboard shortcut after entering Audio Position?

I can't find this in the online help and I have a vague recollection it used to be different.

Audacity 2.2.0, OS X, Sierra. Installed via .DMG

If one manually enters a cursor position in the Audio Position fields at the bottom of the screen, shouldn't a key-press (ENTER or something else) put the cursor at the audio position entered? I seem to recall this did work at one time, but perhaps my memory is wrong.

Another way to achieve the same thing is to change the drop down to "Start and Length of Selection," enter your desired cursor position in the first set of fields under that drop-down and leave the length fields at 0h00m00s. You can also use the "Start and End of Selection" option in the drop-down, but you have to enter your desired cursor position twice.

Is there another way to achieve the same thing?

Cheers,

Yes, but it's a bit obscure. Cmd+F6 moves focus between the Selection Bar, the Upper Tool Dock, and the Track Panel. Once you're in the track panel you can use up-arrow and down-arrow to move focus between tracks.

So, click in the Selection Toobar and set the cursor position, the Cmd+F6 twice, or Shift+Cmd+F6 to move focus to the audio track (assuming you have one audio track).
