Steps to reproduce

Start a new document. Enter the heading. enter three lines of text, one word each is fine. Move the cursor to the end of the second line of text with the mouse. Click after the heading. Press enter.

Cursor either moves to start of line before the first line of text, or a blank line is inserted between the text and heading and the cursor is set to insert in it

Actual result

The cursor moves to the end of the second line of text.

By the heading you mean a heading or the title/file name?

This behavior is by design; the cursor returns to it’s previous location (before the inline title was focused) when pressing Enter.

if you just want to get to the first line of the document, you can press Down.
