It seems as though when I type in return for 2015b in mac it does not continue with the code. Is anyone else having this problem?

Why can you not use dbcont if that is exactly its purpose?

I found this same issue when I recently upgraded to 2016a. While 'return' during debugging would resume execution in older versions of Matlab, it appears that this syntax is no longer supported. You can use 'dbcont' instead: dbcont

I have the same problem. When in keyboard mode and I type "return", keyboard mode is not exited. I get:
>> keyboard
K>> return
whereas it should be
>> keyboard
K>> return
