When flagging a question as duplicate, I had this dialog:

Duplicate

This presents a list with 5 items (choices).

I clicked on duplicate of... and I had a list of questions to choose a duplicate:

Duplicate

The label of the dialog is still Why should this question be closed?, the first item is a hint but it's not differentiated from the other items. It has the same style than the question below. In fact it didn't see it on first look and thought it was a proposal of question to mark as source of duplicate. I think it should have a different look or background color to inform the user that this is not a choice but an information box.

Update: I closed my own question so the label is different when flagging some content from another user, it's I am flagging this question because on the main and sub menu.

    I get confused in the same way each time. (It's long enough apart that I have to dupe-close on a mobile that I haven't gotten used to it yet.) – doppelgreener Oct 28 '14 at 6:19

    The top icon actually is an option, if you tap it you can manually enter a question URL or ID to mark as a duplicate of that. This entire dialog is really hacky right now on both client side and server side. I'll see what we can do about it. – Kasra Rahjerdi Oct 28 '14 at 16:02

    @KasraRahjerdi: I think I'm not the only one to have missed it was a button. – A.L Oct 28 '14 at 17:17
