Description

There is a bug in Phab.

Firefox Mac.
In Phab, I am creating a new task.
I the field Tags, I enter some text. For example, "regression".
I click the loupe.
The search panel comes.

Expected result:

The search panel has, in its search field, the text that I have entered. The search panel proposes some tag(s) for the text that I have entered.

Observed result:

The search panel shows me a search field but without the text that I have entered. The search panel does not propose the tag(s) for the text that I have entered. Moreover, the page erases my text in the field Tags of the main form! My text has been completely lost! If I close the search panel, then I find the field Tags without my text.

It would be nice to correct this bug.

Thank you.

Aklapper edited projects, added Phabricator (Upstream); removed Phabricator.

When clicking the loupe icon, you leave the free text field and its content gets reset to default. That's the behavior of all 'type-ahead proposals' Phabricator fields and hence consistent.
Asking for your text to be taken over into the project search field sounds like an enhancement request (to request to upstream maintainers) and not like a bug.

As far as I know there are no plans to change the current behavior and the last comment explains why I consider that behavior consistent. So I'll reflect reality by declining this task.
