Date/Time editor closes after a single click

The date/time editor for scheduling blogs used to be you could click and set the month/day, time, AM/PM before closing it. Now if you select AM/PM or if you select a day, the picker closes, meaning I have to open it 3 times to set the date/time!

@codedread Thanks for the report!

This happens with version 5.5.2, but not WordPress 5.4. It also occurs with the latest Gutenberg plugin activated (9.2.2).

The datepicker likewise closes when:

  • selecting one of the dates in the calendar table or
  • using the spacebar to switch from AM to PM (or PM to AM)

Plus, when using the keyboard (Enter or space), the focus is not anywhere near the sidebar to re-open the datepicker for adjusting another part of the date.

I tested with Firefox 82, Chrome 86, and Edge 86 on Windows 10.

I moved this report to GitHub so the Editor team can handle it there.

If you have anything to add, please comment on that issue.
