MS Excel equivalent to the F2 key. In Excel you just hit F2 to start edited a given cell. In Numbers I have to double click it. Is there a keyboard shortcut for this? Thanks!

Try option-Enter or option-Return. The cell data doesn't appear immediately at the top of the screen until you type something.

Thanks. On my computer it is actually "alt"-enter, not option-enter
