Re: 1

The following macro will cause the Element List to appear when you press Enter:

Application.ElementList.Visible = true;

However, that will also break (by suppressing) the standard XMetaL behavior for the Enter key, which is a very nice feature that you may not want to deprive your users of. If your users don't like pressing Ctrl+Shift+I to open the Element List you might consider assigning a different key to the macro above, one that they find easier to remember, but one that does not break the Enter key behavior.

Another option is to have them open the Views toolbar. There's a button for the Element List on it.
