Caption Shortcut

I'm just trying to improve my captioning and keywording workflow by learning/using more keyboard shortcuts.

Is there one for adding a caption?

I find using the Wacom pen and the keyboard is clumsy. I can add keywords using ctrl-k, but I can't find how to get into the Caption field without using the pen or mouse.

Closest I can get is to click in the Caption field, and then use Ctrl-arrow to move to the next image while still keeping that field active. Any good?

Just Google'd and came across this post. The Ctrl/Cmd-arrow shortcut while in the Caption field used to work for me, but upon upgrade to CC 2015.5, it doesn't advance to the next photo AND keep the Caption field active. Victoria (or anyone), are you experiencing this too? Is there a setting I need to change to get this functionality back? It was a lifesaver for me!

Ah! Thanks for letting me know, Jim. I will file a bug report with Adobe now in the hopes of getting this fixed in El Capitan! I appreciate your checking and making sure it wasn't just me!
