Typing ' (apostraphe) in tickets jumps to 'Go To A Project' in Google Chrome

This is very weird, and extremely annoying. Every time I type an apostrophe in a ticket text it jumps up and start typing into the 'Go To A project' field.

I'm using Google Chrome

    The single apostrophe? The shortcut key is the tilde ( ''' ).

    good catch, - I shouldn't be observing text areas. Should have a fix for this today.

    The tilde ( ~ ) just types as normal, the back-tick ( ) also types as normal, but it's the apostrophe ( ' ) that causes the issue

    I'm in the UK - could it be a i8n issue ? that would surprise me, bit you never know.

    Cool thanks - I'm entering lots of issues at the moment - so it's a drag ;-)

    On another note, I don't like the fact the top link to my current iteration has gone - but maybe I should mention that as a separate issue

    On a final note - I do like your support software - might have to start using it myself for my site BookingBug.com ;-)

    We just pushed code that added the current milestone back. You can find it in your project nav now.
