    Since upgrading to Q1 2015 release, our users are complaining that when you select an item from a multi-select, that item remains in the list of items that can be added.  Selected items have a class of "k-state-selected" so they show with a different colour background and selecting an item again will remove from the result set, but the behaviour is confusing and annoying to the end-users and I cannot work out how to disable it.

    This change is not documented here and I cannot find any mention of it in the API reference. How do I make multi-selects behave as in the previous release please?

    Hello Paul,

    The described behavior was introduced in Q1 2015 due the virtualization functionality. It wasn't compatible with the dynamic rendering of the UI. The new behavior allows to select/unselect items using keyboard navigation, which before was not possible. Also many users wanted from us to enable this selection behavior due the need to display "checkbox" elements (to keep the selected items visible).

    This breaking change is documented in our "Changes and backward compatibility" page.

    For now, I would not be able to provide any feasible workaround for this change.
