Bug with Label Autocomplete box - doesn't close

PD

When entering a task and adding a new label, one that has not been entered before, the autocomplete box will not close and allow the task to be entered. The box does not respond to EXC and stays when switching views to another project or after closing and opening the Todoist window. The box does close and allow the task to be entered, however, if you click another task in that project.

Hello Phoebe,

For the box to close, you need to "end the label". That is - add a space after it. Please confirm, does adding one space after the label name close the box correctly or do you still see it?

If you choose an existing label, the space is added automatically after the label, that's why the box closes then.


Best regards,
David

Okay yes adding a space works. That makes sense although it is not necessarily intuitive.

The thing is, in Chrome, you don't need the space, so why do we need it for Firefox?

In Chrome, you can press ESC halfway through typing the label and then finish it up. Even in Firefox, after I finish typing and press the spacebar to allow it to be entered, I can then delete the trailing space and it still works fine. Still seems like a bug in Firefox to me.

Cynthia,

Both browsers are designed differently and how they work, so I assume this is the case, though I will look into it to see if its a bug or not, but I am pretty sure it has to do with how they are built do to being different engines.

Brendon.

You're probably right. Thanks for the prompt response. :)
