[BUG] Clicking "I'm done adding tasks" doesn't save task currently being added.

AM

Repro Steps:
1. Click "Add Task"
2. Type text into task text field such as "Run a mile".
3. Click "I'm done adding tasks".

Expected:
"Run a mile" to be added as a to-do.

Actual:
No task is added. This behavior mimics hitting Esc, which is unexpected as I typed in a task and clicked "I'm done adding tasks".

Screenshot of why the current result is jarring (imagine having a lot more text / losing a brain dump...):

Hello Ashley,

this isn't a bug. Only when you use either the ENTER key or the "Save" button, a task is actually being added. The task input field gives you an option to either save a task or, if you're done, close it using either ESC or the "I'm done adding tasks" link.

Still, thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and you're welcome to add a feature request for changing this option to our Votebox:

Best regards,
David

I disagree that this isn't a bug since "I'm done adding tasks" communicates the direct opposite of discarding edits and canceling changes (for which ESC makes sense), but have submitted the change of behavior request to Votebox:
