When pickups appear on screen, how do I get them when in typing mode ?

It seems to have an icon on them (at least at the beginning) with two horizontal arrows in opposite directions, but I cannot figure out what key this is supposed to be.

Use the Tab Key. That is the item pickup button in typing mode.

Ah my keyboard does not display this symbol for TAB. It would have been easier if they put <TAB> instead of this symbol for the people who have keyboards where it is written TAB. Thanks anyway. – BlueTrin Oct 30 '13 at 12:12
