In the new design, the Optional Comment field seems pre-populated with the text I entered last time. This is often the text I use again for a new entry. However, the pre-populated text is grey, and I haven’t found a way to re-use it. When I leave the grey pre-populated text and Add Progress, the Optional Comment of the new entry is blank. If I can’t use the pre-populated text, why is it there at all?
I think it is to remind us what the last point entered was… Although I agree that it might be better if it were somehow possible to reuse it as well rather than just see what it was.
