tab in last field of data should insert new row & position cursor in 1st field (of new row)

<using <tab> in last field of data should insert new row & position cursor in 1st field (of new row) ...equivalent to (but less klunky than) <down-arrow><home>

any way to get this implemented? doesn't hurt anything, but makes data entry (of multiple records) much easier/much less distracting/painful

even if some people wouldn't want this option available (and I cannot imagine why anyone would care; <tab>, in this context, does nothing anyway), just let it be a checkbox option in HeidiSQL preferences...

hard to believe this hasn't been brought up before (or maybe I just didn't find it in archival forum posts)

if it can't/won't be implemented across the board, is there any way I can somehow make MY copy of HeidiSQL do this?

thanks!

(P.S./e.g.: Paradox for Windows did this in Table Edit mode)

oh... and (as I HAVE seen in other posts somewhere), just KEEP the darn data cells (in the new row) in EDIT mode (i.e., don't force user to press <F2> before entering data)!
