Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've noticed this over the past few days and at first I thought it was a bug (see edit).

Can we have it so that IFF there exists a single matching tag to the text entered that it renders the last tag as a tag and not as text when focus is lost on the tags box:

enter image description here

The system already does this when you save your question, but its not clear currently whether the last tag will or won't be saved (yes, I know it does).

It will render if you put a space after it. Or put your cursor on another tag before making it lose focus. – Shog9 Oct 12 '11 at 22:50
@Shog9 - The space habit sounds like a good quick win – xiaohouzi79 Oct 12 '11 at 22:52

This used to behave in the way you describe; see Feedback wanted: Improved tag editor for the reasons for changing it. Short version: Both behaviors make sense in a way; we've settled for the one that seems to cause fewer issues, both usability-wise and technical.
