Just chiming in to say that we noticed this with user training as well.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] comma behavior when adding agent links

Hi, all -

We noticed an issue with linking agents (and probably subjects) to other records. It seems that typing a comma signals to the system that I want to choose the first record in a search list. For instance, if I'm searching for Charles Dickens, I would start to type "Dickens" (AlltheDickens.png, attached). However, once I get to the comma part of that string, it selects the first search result (WhattheDickens.png, attached).

Commas in agent names are pretty common, so I could imagine that this would be a steady, low-level frustration for data creators.

Thanks much,
