Did you try It? :-) Well enter doesn't toggle (which might be a good idea, but 
it does indeed select, as always)

| Also, I normally keep the categories in the annotation dialog sorted in
| "last use" order, and that appears to be broken, or at least changed. 
| Particularly when adding "Persons", consecutive photos tend to have largely
| the same group, so the old way was very convenient.  After categorizing a
| handful of photos, the group of people was at the top of the list, making
| it easy to either click to select the ones in the current photo, or in many
| cases to type just the first letter of each name, hitting enter after each.
Nothing should have changed there, could you be more explicit of what you see 
and what you expect?

| The tree view when in alphabetical order is nice, but I hardly ever use
| alphabetical order.
Well it shows up in the categories too, and trust me it is very usefull when 
setting up sub items.

| This is an SVN build from Saturday.
| Thanks, Jesper,
