[FIXED] Bug report: Hitting enter/return after setting a size will also enter editing mode for that element

Balsamiq Edit: This has been fixed in version 3.5.8

Steps to recreate:

  1. Place a “Text Input” object on the canvas
  2. Select the “Text Input” object so that it is highlighted
  3. Click in the “Width” field in the Inspector panel
  4. Enter a new width
  5. Tap the “Enter” or “Return” key on your keyboard

The width value will be applied, but the Text Input object will also change to Edit mode.

Since there is no obvious way to apply the new width value without hitting enter or return, this appears to be a bug.

Sorry for the hassle with that one, @ahobday!

You’re not the first to report it and it is on our “to fix” list. It also affects any change to the position fields.

Thanks for the report, we’ll let you know once this one is taken care of. :slight_smile:

+1 for this bug to be crushed. This really drives me crazy since I enter the precise values to the size fields all the time. Thanks!
