I open the debugger with cmd + J, type something like 3 + 7 into the console, and hit cmd + enter... all I get is an error sound.
I have searched for an hour to find a solution to this simple problem. I see no reason why it should not just execute the darn code.
Why is this so difficult?!?

I have Acrobat DC running on Sierra as well, and Cmd-Return works (I am however also getting a short sound). Do you have a full sized keyboard, or are you on a MacBook?
Here are a few more things to try:
Make sure that you hold down Cmd before you hit Return.
Make sure the cursor is in the line that you want to execute.
Select the whole expression before you use the key combination.
Do you have any software running that intercepts key codes (e.g. a screen capturing software or keyboard macro software)? If so, try to disable this software before you use the JS console.
My Webroot was using a "secure keyboard entry mode"... When I turned this off, it fixed the problem. Thanks!
Be sure to use the Enter key, not Return.
If you're using the small Apple keyboard without numeric pad (MacBook, iMac) you must hit "fn + Return"
