Going to EOL with auto parenthesis

Minor issue, but looking for suggestions..

I like (I think) that when I type: if( it will auto insert the closing parenthesis. The same is true with quotation marks. However, other than hitting the arrow key, I've not found a way to go to the end of the line after typing the value for inside the condition or string. Minor issue, but the arrow keys aren't very "handy" to type. I'd almost rather just type the ) or " ..

Am I missing something or is this just the designed behavior? Thanks!

There's a feature planned, code name "Complete Statement", that's related
to your request. Upon a keystroke, it is supposed to add all of the needed
closing quotes, brackets and parentheses, as well as a semicolon, and go
to the next line. In the case of an "if" statement with a pre-completed closing
paren, that means just going to the next line.
