I am having some problem removing a person from a people field. After clicking X oder remove via backspace delete, the person comes back when the focus switched to another field in the list.

Deleting only works when i save the change directly without clicking anywhere else in the form. Happens only in lists with the modern design, classic works.

@Matthias14 : yeah me too. I posted this couple days ago but in dev github and was asked to post it here but haven't done it yet.

I even recorded the screen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHwsnROvDEs&feature=youtu.be

 

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.
Another way is to open the item details in display form and edit single field then focus out for it to save instead of open the whole edit all form

@OverkillTV , Yes that's possible, but not realy a solution when you have to change 5 fields and there is a flow with a trigger "on Change".

Yeah that's suck but I don't hear anything from MSFT. I also have a flow that run on modified item. Maybe you can try submit a ticket to them ?
