If I understand correctly, it's not possible to edit domain values using keyboard navigation. If we navigate to a different domain cell using the keyboard, there isn't a way to get the cursor to show up and start editing the value.

That makes for a frustrating domain editing experience. If I want to create or modify multiple domains, I need to use the mouse to double-click on a cell in order to edit a value.

I think it should be as easy as entering multiple values/rows in Excel using the keyboard.

Could that behavior be changed?

Tab key for switching cells, F2 to edit (if not already editing)...standard in Excel and other parts of Pro for the most part as well.

@wayfaringrob is correct, the F2 hotkey will allow editing to begin, while tab and shit + tab allow you to move the focus to the next cell, or create a new domain value.
