Good point, and I agree. I avoided that issue to try to keep focus on
the relevent part of the original question, though (regarding
"allows", etc.).

But yeah, "enter" twice isn't good. I'll typically use "enter" when
it involves typing something and hitting Enter, but "type" when it
just involves typing something (such as a text box in a dialog).
Again, trying to be very explicit.

Sure, there are countless recognized synonyns (enter, input, submit),
but in the end, if the user is supposed to type something, then what
can be simpler than using "type"?
