Different behaviour when adding labels to tasks


I notice that when I've created a task and want to assign a priority level, reminder, or label, that the first two options behave differently than the last. If I click on the priority icon, or the reminder icon, and then change my mind about adding either, I can simply click outside the box that appeared and the box will disappear and no priority level or reminder needs to be selected. However, when I click on the label icon, I can't then decide not to add a label since the box won't disappear when I click outside it. I MUST select a label, and then delete it after it has been added, if I decide I don't want one after all. Is this difference intentional?

Hi Cliff,

This is due to how we have a quick drop down menu for labels. You can just type @ and then the label name to see a list of already used labels. Though, because of this when you click on the label icon that you refer to, it starts this typing mode.

So we could either have no auto drop down mode, and have the button act the same way as the rest, or have a very useful drop down menu to most.
