    Using the sample at:  

    1. Set focus into the Optional field
    2. Start typing "Nan
    3. Use the down arrow to select the 2nd Nancy
    4. Tab out

    The selected record is not added to the selected values.  The only way I have found to actually add it, is by using the mouse.  This greatly slows down our data entry staff.  Why does it not behave the same way as the combobox, or autocomplete field?

    For example, go to type in "Den", down arrow to select Denmark and tab, Denmark is now populated in the autocomplete field.  Same occurs with combo boxes.

    Hello Allan,

    Thank you for reporting this behavior. We logged it for fixing. You can track the bug's status through this issue on our Github repo.

    Until a fix becomes available an alternative to selecting the focused item with the mouse is to press Enter. It works identically in the MultiSelect and AutoComplete selecting the currently focused item.

    I updated your Telerik points for reporting this issue.
