Edited text vanish with Esc key

I wish this was different. Why?
I just spent 15 minutes carefully entering text in a text box and carefully formatting it for a cover page. Then I accidentally hit the Escape key. Total frustration! All of my careful work has vanished and that is no "undo" to get it back. This has happened to me before on a smaller scale or with less of a loss.
Can we have a different way to confirm the contents of the text box other than clicking out side of it? I don't seem to have this problem with other tools. So it is probably just me.

Nah, we've all been there. I'd also love to behave the text tool more like in Photoshop & co, where the Esc key does not yeet your carefully inputted text.

However there is another way except for clicking outside: Control + Enter will do the same.

On a Mac it is Command + Return.
