  • Dear Microsoft Edge Team,
    I didn’t hear anything from you since more than 3 months regarding this issue. The bug still exists. Could you reproduce this issue or do you need more information? We implemented a grid view where users can edit their allocations and this bug is pretty annoying for this users doing their daily business. The bug does not exist in IE 11 or Chrome but in Edge.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We are pleased to report this feature is fixed in Edge 17093 and is available in our Insider Preview build.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
