iPadOS with bluetooth keyboard - No way to move from title to body without touch

Steps to reproduce

  1. Hit command-N to make a new note
  2. Type the title of the note
  3. Hit enter, down arrow, or command-enter

Expected result

Cursor moves to note body

Actual result

Cursor remains in the title. If command-enter is hit, a checklist markdown stub is created in the body. Same for command-i and command-b for bold and italics, respectively.

Additional information

I toyed with Full Keyboard Access as a temporary workaround, but that doesn’t solve this issue either (see [FR] iOS Full Keyboard Access).

Thank you!

I had thought TAB might work but it does not either.

Oops, I forgot to add that to the list of things I tried. Thanks!
