(with New Jersey filter also applied, but I doubt that changes anything)

Step 1: using Identify page. copy/pasted a placeholder ‘‘Oak leaf roller’’ and pasted into comment area of an ID. Hit tab , enter to submit.

Step 2: type -> , i , d , down-arrow , enter , enter to quickly add ID to next observation

Step 3: whoops, comment from previous observation was copied…

This happens on Chrome 86.0.4240.111 too FWIW.

trying to replicate it and not getting anything… it’s not the first time I’ve seen a comment from the previous observation auto-copy, but it’s the first time it saved with the rogue comment still there. maybe you have to be reaallly fast??

I’ve seen what may be the same behavior in the last day or two, during very fast switching between obs- a quick flash of the previous obs’ comment and then it vanishes while I look at it in confusion, before clicking anything else.

I further found that if you paste a different comment in quickly over top of it, the new text vanishes when the old one would have.
