Presently the settings button menu in the template manager only activates through the keyboard with the up and down arrow keys, but as it is a button, it should also activate with the spacebar and enter key.

There were some issues because of which we decided to allow only spacebar to open the dropdown for now.
Enabling the same for enter would change existing behavior and we are not sure about the impacts this might have.
