I have noticed this problem since first using O13. I enter an appointment on the calendar. then click on another time and start to enter text. Nothing appears in the entry box. When I click away from it, only the fist letter of what I typed is there. The rest went nowhere.

If I double click for the second entry, but not too fast, normal text entry is possible. Of course, if I double click for the first entry, an appointment entry window opens.

Has no one else experienced this?
 
I think the double click experience is expected - you can either type in-place to create an appointment or open a new form and create the appointment. i'll try to repro the typing problem.

Check file, Office Account - what version of outlook are you using?

OL13 I didn't see the problem previously, in OL10.

I mentioned the double click speed because if just double clicking all the time was the solution, I might be able to learn that. but having to double click, at different speeds depending on if it is a first or second entry becomes ridiculous. (as if the basic problem isn't ridiculous!).
 
slow double clicks select and open an appointment to 'type in-place' - fast doubles should open a new appointment form.

yes. that is correct, providing one gets the double click at the right pace. though a single click also selects and opens an appointment to 'type in place'. another single click should be able to do the same, to enable 'type in place', on another selection. not appear blank, then show only the first character after leaving the appointment.
