Zotero 7 beta: Title text disappears if you click out of Item Pane

I typed a lengthy title with a book item type in the Item Pane. Before I finished typing it, I wanted to check a similar item to make sure I used the same format. I clicked into the Item List on the other item. The title I'd been typing originally disappeared. This doesn't happen if you click into another field within the Item Pane--only clicking out of the pane.
  • Can you reproduce this in a reliable way?
    Do you have your library opened on multiple devices at the same time?

    I have seen the problem on other fields also (authors, abstract), but I could not reproduce it in a reliable way or identify the origin of the problem. Most of the time, it is worknig fine for me.

    Windows 10
    Zotero 7.0.0-beta.57+3acef799f (64-bit)
  • It is consistently happening under these conditions:
    Windows 11--7.0.0-beta.57+3acef799f (64-bit)

    1. Create item with Book item type.
    2. Type text into Title field, without pressing tab or enter.
    3. Click over into the Item List to another item.
    4. The Item remains, but the title is gone.

    Thank you very much. I can reproduce now on Windows 10 also.
    The key to reproduce is to start from an empty field.
    I have been able to reproduce the problem for the title and the abstract.
    If you modify a title or an abstract already containing some text, the modifications are properly saved.

    Probably related to this one:
  • It does appear to be the same issue. Clicking out of the field for me is only a problem if I also leave the pane.
