Choose "Quick view" in one of the panels, and press Tab to make it focused.

Some keys are handled by the viewer, while some other keys (including Enter) are passed to the command line.

This is very dangerous since you can easily type and execute a harmful command.

E.g. type

ls > desktop.txt

and then press Enter.

The command executed will be


wiping out your "stop.txt" file.

Either all characters, enter, backspace, and perhaps also left-right arrows should be passed to the command line (but that would limit the quick viewer's usability), or none (so you'd have to press Tab to go back to the file listing panel to type your command, I guess I'd vote for this).
