I use GMail keyboard shortcuts a lot. When I reply (R), but I meant to reply-all, I hit Esc then A, to switch the reply to all.

But then, I have to either use the mouse, or tab a bunch of times to get back into the area where I write my response.

Is there a shortcut or hack that jumps right to this text area?

esc + o + a

esc : gets you out of edit mode

o : opens the document [basically returns the document to 'unedit' state.

a : reply all
