I'm not entirely certain what you are intending to ask. A little more information in the question certainly wouldn't hurt.

Shift+Enter has no direct function in Illustrator's Transform Panel.
At least not in any version I'm running here.

What I do....

  • Enter value
  • Hit Tab
  • Hold Shift and hit Tab again

The Tab will commit the value and move the the next field in the panel. Then the Shift+Tab moves back to the previous field in the panel.

By repeating this process, it essentially allows one to continually alter a value in a panel field without any need for a "click" anywhere.
