How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Use enter rather than escape to accept a dropdown entry

Currently in XL2016, if you're using a cell that has access to a dropdown list and, in the midst of typing an entry decide to use a selection from the dropdown list, to ACCEPT the entry you've chosen, you have to press ESCAPE, whilst the ENTER button results in an error message. That seems counter-intuitive, since everywher else escape means "no", "reject" or "leave", whilst enter/return is equivalent to "yes" or "accept". Please adjust this so it is more in accord with the User Interface.
