Inexperienced user question re data entry

I’m sure this is in DT somewhere, but I can’t find it. I’m trying to enter numerous handwritten notes into DTPorOffice, ideally without using the mouse. I can generate a new rtf easily enough and title it, but can’t find how to then move the insertion point mouselessly into the view pane so I can just start typing. This is the sort of thing that almost always has a trivial answer, but I can’t find it. Help!

Just use Option-Tab to move the focus.
