Can't close "Add Task" dialog when the task name box has text


Mac OS X 10.7.5
MacBook Pro

In Mac OS X Todoist, if I hit the Add Task button and type something into the description box then hit x to close it, the dialog doesn't close. If I delete the text and hit x, it closes normally.

Very minor! Love your product!

Same here! Mac OS X 10.9 (iMac)

To clarify, you are using the "Add Task" button within a Project, or the Quick Add + button at the top? Also, does it occur for each?

If you open up Safari and head to Todoist, does this occur as well?

Hi Brendon,

Only the quick-add button at the top. The cancel button for the Add Task dialog within projects works perfectly. My Gmail extension for Chrome works, but if there's text in the box it'll prompt me if I'm sure I want to close it.

Let me know if I can be of any more help -- definitely appreciate the quick response.

Hello Ian,

This issue is caused by the fact that in order to ensure that you don't accidentally close the input field automatically discarding potentially important data, if there is text in this box as you try to close it, a popup window should show up asking you if you're sure you want to discard changes.

Unfortunately, it seems that the Mac app doesn't support such functionality. We're looking into this.

Best regards,
