Several times happened, when I wanted to create a recurring task, I accidentally opened the set start date date picker. Recognising the mistake, I pushed the ESC button. But, that closes the whole create item form, and not just the date picker. Honesty, I find that unintuitive. I think, it would be better, when I pushed the ESC, the application would only close the date picker.
The flow would be like this:
- Click on new Item.
- Select scheduled, set start date menu item. Date picker opens
- Push ESC.
- The date picker closes, the filled out form remains on screen
- The date picker and the filled out close, and I loose the unsaved changes.
I think this is related: Escape key is too eager when creating tasks or projects
