Escape button consistency
When I type in a text box on the artboard and I hit escape it keeps the text I just changed and takes me out of editing mode with the cursor.
When I type in a layer to change the name of it and I hit escape it removes the changes I just made and take me out of editing mode with the cursor. To effectively keep the changes I must hit return on the keyboard.
If I hit return on the keyboard while editing a text box on the artboard I get what I would expect -- a carriage return.
It would be great if while editing a name of a layer and I hit escape or return it would keep the changes. I find that I am often duplicating items changing text and changing layer names and having to mentally switch back and forth from remembering to hit return or escape is a point of frustration.
Yes. Just like illustrator. Now I have within 1 hour 10 times an 'Ooh right' doesn't work moment :D. Should be an easy fix for this one.
Agreed. The fact that it is inconsistent between text elements and artboard/layer titles constantly trips me up.

Yes. This is a basic consistency problem. Odd to find within the same app. Please make artboard title text changes commit with Esc key.
Yes definitly happens to me a lot too

Right now if I edit an artboard title then hit the Escape key, the title reverts back to its previous text. However, when I edit a textbox and hit the esc key, the change is kept. The result of this inconsistency is that I'm constantly discarding my changes to artboard titles because I forget to use enter instead of esc to close the edit mode. This is causing me frustration and loss of accuracy in my designs. I would like to have the ability to finalize changes to the title using esc as well as enter.
I understand the use of esc to discard changes was probably designed as a "cancel" feature, but I think it would be simpler to just hit "undo" if one mistakenly changes an artboard title.
