Cuaenter needs to be on, if you want it to behave like an Enter key.
The moving to the next field is Cuaenter = off, which is why it's acting
like a tab key instead.

Since you don't mention your version etc, there is very little to go on,
as I remember someone mentioning some earlier version may have had an
issue, but since you don't mention that it's anyone's guess.
