[R-SIG-Mac] cmd-return in editordoes not go to next line

I recently stumbled upon "Keyboard Maestro", a program for defining
keyboard macros.
(I had to deal quickly with a broken key.)
This solves the problem you mention, 
-- and many other peeves with the Mac interface.
You can easily define ctrl-R (restricted to R.app) to be Cmd-Enter
Then you can step through your code comfortably.
It's commercial, but cheap, and I got near instant user support when I
hit a snag.

A few years ago MacroMagic on Windows scared me off of keyboard macro
(Amazingly, it would diddle a bit in the floating point processor,
which would then fool Splus in its handling of NA's in certain settings
--- bizarre!!)
But so far so good with this one.
