However, the return or enter key will break the text to the next line – not commit to it (like it would apply the transformation). In order to apply (or commit the text) use Command + return (Mac) / Control (Win) + enter.

After saving selections as channels, those channels can be loaded back into a selection with the following shortcuts:
• Command -click (Mac) | Control -click (Win) on the channel’s thumbnail to load the channel as a selection.
• Command + Shift (Mac) | Control + Shift (Win) to add additional channels to the selection.
• Option + Command (Mac) | Alt + Control (Win) to subtract another channel from the selection.
• Option + Command + Shift (Mac) | Alt + Control + Shift (Win) to create the intersection of two channels.
When using the panel-based adjustments (a Curves Adjustment layer for example), use Option + 2, 3, 4, etc.(Mac) | Alt (Win) + 2, 3, 4, etc. to view the channels.
The Hue/Saturation and Selective Color commands are slightly different as they don’t map to RGB/CMYK, but the same general rules apply: Option +2 (Mac) | Alt (Win) + 2 selects the Master channel, and Option (Mac) | Alt (Win) + 3, 4, etc. selects the subsequent items in the list.
When working in RGB:
• Command + 2 (Mac) / Control + 2 (Win) displays the Composite (RGB) Channel
• Command + 3 (Mac) / Control + 3 (Win) displays the Red Channel
• Command + 4 (Mac) / Control + 4 (Win) displays the Green Channel
• Command + 5 (Mac) / Control + 5 (Win) displays the Blue Channel
When working in CMYK,:
• Command + 2 (Mac) / Control + 2 (Win) displays the Composite (CMYK) Channel
• Command + 3 (Mac) / Control + 3 (Win) displays the Cyan Channel
• Command + 4 (Mac) / Control + 4 (Win) displays the Magenta Channel
• Command + 5 (Mac) / Control + 5 (Win) displays the Yellow Channel
• Command + 6 (Mac) / Control + 6 (Win) displays the Black Channel
• Command + ~ (Mac) / Control + ~ (Win) switches among open documents
• Command + 1 (Mac) / Control + 1 (Win) zooms to 100%
You can revert back to the old behavior by selecting Window > Workspaces > Keyboard Shortcuts & Menus and enabling Use Legacy Channel Shortcuts, but you will lose Command + ~ (Mac) / Control + ~ (Win) for switching among open documents and Command + 1 (Mac) / Control + 1 (Win) to zoom to 100% (as the Channels shortcuts will revert back to Command + ~ (Mac) / Control + ~ (Win) displays the Composite Channel and moves through the channels starting at 1, 2, 3 etc.).
