Easily add description to new card

When creating a card that needs a more detailed description, the workflow is not very smooth. The two ways I have found to do this are:

Mouse based:
1. Click the + button to create a new card
2. Type out a title
3. Click 'Save' / press 'Enter'
4. Click the newly created card
5. Click the small 'Click to add description'

Keyboard based:
1. 'c' to create a card
2. Type out a title
3. Press 'Enter'
4. Press 'Esc' to stop adding another card
5. Select the card you just created with the arrow keys - the new card is not automatically selected; the selected card may be many cards up from your new card
6. 'Enter' to open the card
7. Click the small 'Click to add description'

A few suggested improvements:

* Add a detailed 'Create new card' view that opens the modal card window with a new card, ready for filling out.

* In the modal card window: a shortcut to edit, or 'Tab' key access to the description editing field - even when there is no description

* When adding a new card/have an existing card selected in the main view, 'Ctrl+Enter' creates the card, opens the modal card window, and starts editing the description.

Not all the suggested improvements may be necessary, but if enough of them are implemented the workflow could change to:

1. Press 'c' to add a card.
2. Type out card title.
3. 'Ctrl+Enter' to save, open modal card window with description field focused.
4. Type out description.
5. 'Tab' + 'Enter' to save the description.
