Step 1: add an id from the dropdown as normal

Step 2: go to comment field to add a something about it

Step 3: while typing, focus unexpectedly changes back to id field so that part of comment gets written there

I have noticed this happening fairly recently, maybe just since the update prior to last night’s. But I can now confirm that last night’s update did not resolve the issue.

Oh, huh. This happens to me all the time. I normally have to hit tab to go back. I assumed I was pushing something to make it hop back to the ID section instead of the comment.

I had this happen more than once a day or so ago, thought somehow I must have moved the focus

This keeps happening to me, although I’ve learned that it doesn’t change the ID, just adds useless characters after it

Good to know, thanks! It does mean retyping the rest of the comment though, or an awkward cut/paste.

Just happened to me today as well. Wonder if it has any connection with the new markdowns available…
