Fix the bug in @mentions
When you type an @ sign for a mention, and then need to backspace or otherwise correct a typo in the name you're typing - then the @mention function no longer works. 30 minutes later the "@" sign still won't bring up the list. If you type the name you want exactly - including both first and last name as the awkward implementation of this feature requires - still doesn't work.
This seems like a minor issue but it happens to a least a couple of people everyday. Not being able to notify someone with a message is such a core requirement that we've had to abandon what would otherwise be a really useful tool. #slack on.
Is fixing this bug really a tough one? It has been a bug for many months now so just wondering why it hasn't been addressed.

Having the same problem. Really annoying.
Also annoying is that the current line of text is often changed to bold font. But not always.
Is anyone else having this problem?
Any progress on this?
