Can I use ESC to cancel a "Add Task"


In the reading mode, I click the "Add to Todoist" button. The Todoist window shows up in gmail with the Add Task box popped up under the "+" sign. Let's say I want to cancel this "Add Task" using keyboard, so I hit the ESC key. The "Are you sure you want to cancel the current task?" prompt shows up as long as I hold the ESC key but the "Add Task" box will come back up as soon as I release the ESC key.

Is it possible to simply cancel the "Add Task" box when the ESC key is hit? At least let the "Are you sure" prompt stays when the ESC key is released.

Hello Leo,

This is a bug, the question should actually stay just if you click the ESC key and not if you hold it. I'll pass it to our developers and we'll look into it.

Best regards,
