Issue #2358 wontfix

Editing issue title doesn't work

Paul Bissex
created an issue

Viewing an issue, I double-click its title to edit. It turns into a text field. I make my changes. Then, as soon as I leave the field, it reverts back to its pre-edited state.

    Pardon for the reopen, but I'm still seeing this -- exactly as I described above.

    Fails as described in Firefox 3.6.13, Safari 5.0.3, Chrome 8.0.

    Insufficient permissions? (Though if that's the case, the title-edit interface shouldn't be presented.)

    Hi Paul,

    The behavior that you are seeing is the intended behavior. Clicking outside the text input is a cancel while hitting enter while focused in the field is the equivalent of hitting save. Sorry for the confusion.

    That is extremely non-intuitive. I tried 5 different ways to save an issue title change and had to Google this thread before I figured it out.

    I agree. Present behavior is a UI fail. If it's desired to have it act as a one-field form, a little submit/save button wouldn't hurt anybody.
