date control strangeness

Some feedback: I've found the date control to be a bit quirky... I was importing a bunch of articles and setting their respective dates as I imported them & I found it awkward that I couldn't (as far as I could tell) paste the date.

The bug I noticed is:

1) open an article
2) click on "properties" tab
3) click on the "Filed Date" year and change it to something else.
4) click on "Save and Close"
5) re-open the article
6) click on "properties" tab

Result: the new year wasn't saved.

Note that if I press [enter] as step 3.5, it works fine.

Unfortunately, I didn't notice this until after changing 30 dates from "2002" to "2001".

Otherwise, I really like CityDesk & looking forward to future versions.  Thanks.

I apologize for that Neil.  Its definitely a bug.
The workaround is as you suggest, just move the focus off of the date control before saving, or hit enter.
