how do I use keyboard to enter annotations?

Sometimes when I want to add annotations to a pdf (such as replace text, delete text, etc.) I have to use the mouse to click on the right symbol in the Comments/Annotations box. Other times, however, I can delete text simply by highlighting the text and pressing the backspace key, or replace the text by highlighting and simply typing the new text. What do I need to do to enable the use of the keyboard, such as in the second description, when it's not working?

Some commenting tools have keyboard shortcuts, but it depends on your version of Acrobat/Reader.

To enable them go to Edit - Preferences - General and tick "Use single-key accelerators to access tools".
